We haven’t gotten around to him yet, but @Daniel Seahorn will have some thoughts. 

Good length, solid feet and does a good job not letting them die on contact as a run blocker. Moves around pretty good, but he worries me with how early he turns his shoulders in pass pro. That’s something better rushers will expose.

Texas A&M has the “swagcopter”, made popular by now former A&M coach Kevin Sumlin’s quick dash recruiting trips. Now second-year Texas coach Tom Herman’s making the most of his own helicopter, especially on his team’s week off.

Herman spent a whirlwind Thursday and Friday night crisscrossing high profile sections of Texas, attending the games of high profile recruits after landing Texas football’s dedicated helicopter, the appropriately named “Bevocopter.”

 

The Bevocopter is here. Tom Herman flying in to see Texas commit T'Vondre Sweat. #HookEm

 
 

 

Per 247Sports, those Herman Thursday pit stops included a stop to see Class of 2019 defensive end T’Vondre Sweat, Class of 2020 wide receiver Troy Omeire, while his Friday was even more a mad trolley dash run through. Just look at the list of players Herman got in front of while flexing the use of his Bevocopter: Andrew Coker, Bryce Foster, Hayden Connor, Zachary Evans, Damieon George and Shardach Banks, Javonne Shepherd, Demond Demas, Vernon Broughton, Prince Dorbah and Chad Linberg.

While that massive crop of recruits is unlikely to commit to Texas en masse, it’s clear that Herman’s Bevocopter arrivals only helped his program’s cause.

“It was something you’re not going to see everyday,” Omeire told 247Sports. “He didn’t have to come to my game, so it means a lot for him to have come and spent time with my team.”

Added Evans: “It was a good feeling. I honestly didn’t see it at first. My team actually saw it and asked me who it was. It was live.”

Or, most impressed of all: The mother of Linberg, Emily Linberg:

“We were super excited about the arrival of the Bevocopter,” the elder Linberg told 247Sports. “I hadn’t really told a lot of people, so everyone was wondering what it was. I don’t think Chad’s teammates really thought it was going to happen, so they were thrilled. UT’s stock definitely rose.”

Hookfin isn’t a name I’m familiar with. That’s a solid class, but it’s lacking interior bodies and particularly one that can at least crosstrain at center. Shepherd’s floor also spooks me a little bit. 6.5 is my cautious answer.

We're talking to him

I know you guys are pumped OL Andrew Coker is going to be visiting. 

He’s a 3-star Tackle from Katy who has been committed to TCU awhile. But all of their drama has him still looking around.

Peyton Powell provides incredible versatility to the 2019 class. Four-star athletes that can play or defend any skill position is about as valuable as it gets. The coaching staff can assess his skillset in comparison to what they will need come next summer, and put him at QB, RB, WR, DB. The possibilities are endless with Powell.

Definitely. I do hope that we can sway a couple more of the elite guys that we didn't get last year. It would have been nice to grab Moore and Waddle last year but we finished up very nicely. If this season ends positively I think we do just that.

@RDHookEm Four-star De'Gabriel Floyd (#55 overall on 247) out of Los Angeles is set to enroll early next semester and will have a good shot at the starting job in my opinion. David Gbenda out of Cinco Ranch is our only other commit at linebacker as of now, but I don't see him getting starting time at the position right off the bat.

Also have Tillman out of Florida , Rover most likely to start out

Looking at the Scholarship distribution after Wheeler  and Johnson leave. Rather thin at that position. @Daniel Seahorn, @Harrison Wier, or any of the HS staff, who do you see as the future at LB next year including players on the current roster and 2019 commits?

I think Floyd will be the most college-ready of the freshmen. Caleb Johnson is the perfect replacement for Gary Johnson if Texas can beat out Oregon. I would think we’d see a ton of Ayodele Adeoye next season plugging up the middle. His issue is the staff doesn’t know how he’ll be in coverage.

    • 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.
