Nope. They are just putting offers on the table they deem as elite and some of them are also reflective of how they feel about the in-state talent at some positions. 

By the way the Massachusetts offer (Lewis Cine) is moving to Texas for his senior year.

Yeah, but he was a Mass resident when the offer was made. lol It helps my shpill. lol

He'll be at Trinity in Cedar Hill. 

We should stop at some point and make a list, from the out of state offers, that Texas has a legitimate shot at.

Texas currently has 89 offers out and 55 of them are OOS. More than 61%.

Wow.

I expect more offers go out to Texas kids over the summer, but for the moment, thats pretty startling to look at.

Ok, had a long conversation with my friend down in Austin. So there's much to share today.

1. The biggie, IMO. Said he feels like there may be some sort of effort going on that is anti-UT in the Dallas area, specifically in the 7-7 ranks. He said apparently some folks felt dissed by our assumed snub of DFW prospects last year (2018 cycle) while we killed it in Houston.

He said a lot more than that, but I'll stop there because the rest gets into details I'm not comfortable sharing. But he says there's a case of butt hurt going on that has spread through some circles in the DFW area.

2. When recruiting began for this class months and months ago, there was a list of WRs and other skill players the coaches wanted to recruit. As it worked out, the kids the staff has and continues to work on are the ones they evaluated as their top targets. So the initial surge by aggy wasn't really relevant to our cause unless we miss on our targets. They think the WR from Austin is the best in the state.

3. Forget about the OL Green. He will not be coming to Texas. He says the kid is literally surrounded by aggy and contact is being regulated to a degree already. He said it would take an act of God to get him in the Texas class. Nevertheless, we are trying.

4. He said mood around the facilities is very upbeat but relaxed. No one seems alarmed about aggy. Everyone is focused on the mission.

5. He would not comment one way or the other when I asked about the possibility of aggy BMDs getting involved in recruitments. Lets face it, there are several that have gone down and gone down in a manner that makes you say "hmmmm." A group of 5-4 stars who don't want to take any visits at all?

The telling thing for me was, if it were something to be dismissed, he would have come out and said so. He didn't.

 

 Mack Brown said he would not turn in other schools for cheating because Joe Paterno advised him it would just not be worth it. I hope our current coach does not feel the same way.

Will Texas being the team he rooted for growing up win out in the end?  Seems like he was pressured into committing to aggy.   Also, the guys at IT say his commitment is Patrick Hudson-soft when he was an aggy commit.

Texas will be in it for sure. TCU has the Waxahachie connection (Jalen Reagor and Kennedy Snell)  and proximity in their favor as well.

I got a feeling Daniel maybe it's just me... I haven't commented much lately cuz I've been so busy but something tells me if and that's a big IF Bama and LSU starts turning up the heat offering these guys who committed to A&M it will get very interesting

Positions I'm not worried about with recruiting.

QB:  Already wrapped up and got the guy we waned.

RB:  Drayton will reel in a stud.

WR:  Lots of options and in a good spot with a number of guys.

DB:  Not worried at all, Washington and Naivar have shown what they can do.

LB:  Orlando has already gotten 2 OOS studs both cycles and I think he'll do it again.

OL:  To a degree I'll say OL because we are in a good spot with several top targets and I think Hand will get the job done.

As for the rest:

TE:  Who knows??

DL:  Outside of Leal IDK who we even feel good about atm.  It's to bad Giles doesn't seem to connect with recruits because he's a damn good coach and has the resume to prove it, not to mention the DL looked as good last year as it has in a long time.  If we are indeed taking 5 DL Giles may need some help once again.

I don't know that I can disagree with any of this.

QB: Roschon Johnson.

RB: Cain and/or Glass.

WR: Whittington, Wilson and Higgins.

DB: Not to get lackadaisical, any four star players who want to come to Texas after the 2018 haul.

LB: Has to be a priority. I do trust Orlando's recruiting ability, but Texas will likely have to go out of state for quality recruits.

OL: Texas will get their four star recruits plus at least one three star Connor Williams starter kit.

TE: I'm giving up on tightend. It is what it is. Herman & Co. will make do I'm sure.

DL: This is where I worry a little bit. I like Giles he's a hell of a position coach, but I wish he could recruit better. It seems like Herman and Orlando had to help him close on a few targets this year. That being said I think having an alumnus on your staff coaching in any capacity is a plus.

This year Texas will have it's largest graduating class in several years, so there will be plenty of room. Herman and his staff will fill all the spots needed with quality recruits regardless of stars.

If A&M gets knocked around a bit this year it will get kids to looking around.

Those numbers lineup with what you see on tape. Good back, but doesn’t possess elite athleticism for the position. 

So how does he remain a 5-star, and end up splitting carries (actually got more) with the top back in the country?  I'm not arguing with you, I agree about the tape.  Do you believe he's the top 2019 RB on our coaches' board?

(Since I'm quoting an older post I should probably note this is about Cain)

Not sure how he remained a 5-Star after the tape came out, and that’s not me trying to be disrespectful. I do think he is high on the priority list for the staff along with guys like Deondrick Glass.

I cudda swore I saw a Twitter vid of him (Cain) running a laser timed 4.41 40...I'm sure that helps (as far as remaining a 5 star)

Sounds a little like the 2013 Ole Miss class.  aggy should hire Hugh Freeze as a consultant...
