    Shaka will need more from Eric Davis and Jacob Young, especially Davis. Someone has to replace the offensive production Jones was giving.
  2. Commitment Spotlight: Junior Angilau commits to Texas

    Not Daniel, but in my personal opinion I think he would be better at guard long-term. He has the athleticism to get by at RT, but he could really excel inside where he has almost everything you look for in a guard. Totally agree on the second point. A lot has been said about how Texas needs to have better play from the tackle positions, but the guard play was just as much of an issue. Angilau fills a big need there.
  3. Tom Herman and the Longhorns gained an important commitment Monday night when Junior Angilau became the 19th member of the 2018 recruiting class. Angilau becomes the 3rd offensive line commit, joining Rafiti Ghirmai and Reese Moore. The Salt Lake City native choose Texas over hometown Utah. Angilau ranks as the 155th ranked player in the country, according to the 247 composite rankings. Film Analysis Standing 6’5, 280 pounds, Angilau excels in run blocking. He displays the ability to use his pad level well, mauling defenders in the run game and finishing blocks. Angilau shows good athleticism, getting to the second level and having the ability to block all types of running plays. A question that will need to be answered is how well he can pass protect at the next level. Angilau’s high school operates out of the triple option, rarely throwing the ball. Once he gets to the 40 acres, Angilau would benefit greatly from a redshirt year, which would allow him to hone his pass protection technique. He shows the potential to be a good blocker in the pass game, showing good hand placement and good feet. Angilau has the measurables and ability to play tackle, but may be better suited for guard considering his skill set. Final Verdict Angilau will draw a lot of comparisons to when current Longhorn’s lineman Patrick Vahe came out of high school.. Vahe came to Texas also known as a plus blocker in the run game. Both players played in run-centric offenses and were not forced to pass protect often. Where Angilau has the advantage over Vahe is that he stands several inches taller and shows more athleticism. Texas will continue to look at additional offensive lineman to join the 2018 class, but the Longhorns may be done taking high school lineman for this cycle. Derek Warehime and Tom Herman have several Junior College targets they continue to pursue with the hope they can provide immediate help for the 2018 season and allow the incoming high school lineman to redshirt.
