2019 Recruiting Board/Thread

Well, I'd say they are both more potential than shovel-ready at this point. If you'll remember, the hype on Higgins was potential pretty much. Tall guys with speed. 

With Lewis, Patterson wanted him. And they do pretty well with evals.

 

TCU mods are saying that Lewis was pretty much told to look around and that Patterson was good with him looking around.

This is a pretty accurate statement. 

Most of you youngsters are not familiar with what Texas can do from a recruiting standpoint when Texas is winning and good.  If Herman really gets this thing going getting national 5 stars will become the norm. Mack Brown did it in the early 2000's. Like I said many of you have only been around the last decade which has been a shit show so I understand not having much optimism on landing these elite recruits.

This is true, when Texas won consistently. That hasn’t happened yet. This is one season and Texas still has to finish. Big-time recruits like McCoy and Sanders are still going to be tough to pry away. It’s possible, but it’s not set in stone by any means.

Not necessary. They are pretty high on Lewis and the two are probably not connected.  WR attrition/NFL etc is going to be high.. 

From what we’ve been told the Texas staff is fairly divided on Lewis. Some like him, others don’t.

Agreed. It will probably take multiple good seasons to reverse the recent trends.

Not questioning you or your sources but I find it curious that this would be made known. 

If I was a head coach, once a decision is made to offer a kid, it damn sure better not ever leave the room that we weren't in full agreement. That would be a major problem with me.

I don't disagree. However, we won't report something we know about until it becomes public. Other outlets have made the information public.

I think what they have made public is basically coming from the TCU side. I’m not convinced of it. Could be wrong.

If you’re referring to TCU telling Lewis to look around, then yes. In regards to the staff’s evaluations of Lewis, that’s Texas outlets. Sometimes things leak but all-in-all Lewis is a decent prospect.

Please tell me that by "Texas outlet" you don't mean someone within the program. If it is, then they should be looking for a job. If it's a source outside the program, then I have to question their motives for putting that out there.

But TCU mods are cheerleaders, especially Jeremy. In other words, he was trying to save face.

I know Patterson is a bit of a jerk, but to extend a scholarship offer, let it ride for time, then rescind it using buyer's remorse would ordinarily blow up in the coaches' face. And if it were true, would make a TCU offer about as reliable as a Bama offer.

Lewis resides in the cover area of the DMN while TCU is in FW Startlegram turf. Its not like he would get away with that here.

Plus, there was no buzz about Lewis being asked to look around UNTIL Texas started knocking on the door. "Oh yeah, your talent is being confirmed by the team that just waxed me on national tv, so now I guess you're just not Toad Good."

lol

That's not at all what I was saying and I totally agree. I was saying I hope it isnt McCoy because they're (McCoys side)   losing interest in Texas or are gaining interest in someone else. I feel I just got chastised by Daniel for something I didnt say.

I wasn’t chastising you. I was just reiterating a previous point since it’s been asked before in regards to numbers and guys Texas was/is after. Bru likes Texas a lot and interest hasn’t faded.

The stuff in regards to Lewis and how the Texas staff feels individually was never supposed to be made public. I can say that for sure. 

I personally would not believe any of it unless I heard the staff say it.

    • SHANE  by Jack Schaefer He rode into our valley in the summer of '89. I was a kid then, barely topping the backboard of father's old chuck-wagon. I was on the upper rail of our small corral soaking in the late afternoon sun, when I saw him far down the road where it swung into the valley from the open plain beyond. ... (how it began)
      .......
      He was the man who rode into our little valley out of the heart of the great glowing West and when his work was done rode back whence he had come and he was Shane.   - The End - Back in late '80s, training one weekend on location--a month in advance--for a triathlon at Bass Lake near Yosemite, at the time living in the Bay Area, I visited a local bookstore in nearby Oakhurst, the shop owned by a lady, who, as I was browsing, up and asked me my favorite books, and I said Education of Little Tree and SHANE. Turns out the lady was the daughter of... Jack Schaefer, who, at the time was living in Santa Fe, NM.  He passed away a few years later, in 1991. As a writer of the west he had never been farther west than Ohio at the time he wrote the novel. He was a newspaper man, staying up late at night writing essays on his own time, then wrote SHANE. I first saw the movie in Silsbee, year it was released. My grandparents lived nearby in Kountze. Years later came to appreciate the book as much as the film, if not more so. Recommend U. of Nebraska Critical Edition (1984). Essays, analysis, background.
