National guy from 247 Barton Simmons says Texas is in a real good spot with 5* RB Trey Sanders out of IMG and may even be the leader.  Said Stan Drayton is doing some work in this recruitment.  Also said he's not ready to put in a crystal ball pick yet, wants to see him visit 1st.

He falls in the category of “I’ll believe it when I see it”.

THIS, that’s who I been wantin.  His tape is beast mode. Hopefully the 247 guy is correct but I bet he ends up at a bama or FSU

So you're saying that the University of Texas and the current staff are not good enough to pull an elite 5 star player?

Bama and FSU don't have Stan Drayton. If he's this in love with Texas without a visit, I'd imagine we could get a commitment out of him if he were to OV here.

You'd have to keep recruiting him no matter who you are until NSD. He's that good, starts ahead of Cain.

FSU and Bama will recruit backs at a high level without Drayton and have for awhile. I would love to be optimistic here, but I don’t have a reason to be just yet.

Most players are ready to announce once they've made up their minds. So if he has, Texas is not that school.

IF he makes it in for his visit, the best we can hope for is to either flip or cause him to delay the decision.

IMO, I doubt he makes it in for the visit.

This was always a pipe dream.  Gbenda, Floyd and Henry would be an excellent haul and it seems doable.

SHA had a good synopsis a couple weeks ago and since then i have been watching film on these guys when i get time. 

2019

QB(1) - r johnson: stud, perfect for this system. listed at 6-1, 190. hoping he is actually 6-1, don’t care about the wt at this time. biggest “weakness” is arm strength which is the least important thing in college and its not like its bad, its just not a cannon. electric running, very good passer but needs to continue to get more polished. has at least 3 years b4 he should play a meaningful down at Texas, redshirt.  
 
RB(1) - n cain:i slightly prefer cain more than glass bc i think he will play at 220# and 5-11. doesn’t do anything great but does everything very well. very good jump cut, good patience. 
 
d glass:good player but in my head i just don’t trust a Katy RB. i am not the biggest fan of our current Katy Tiger as a runner and that team is just a machine every year, that OL creates nice holes. 
 
while i love me some tyrion davis(love his size and power 6-1 230# and t sanders, very good around back at 6-0 220, i don’t think they will be realistic options. i also think we only take 1 in 2019 bc the best back is waiting for us in 2020 and i think we take 2 RBs in 2020. 
 
TE(2) - there are at least 8 TE offers and a couple more that should be coming. haven’t watched any TE film yet. probably need 2 if we want to run 12 personnel.
 
WR(4-5) - g wilson: best WR, hands, body control, feet. he has it all. 6-0 but he isn’t a true slot, he can play there but i think he is a true X WR(slot is on his side in 11 personnel).
 
j whittington: i think he can play slot very well but can also be a good X WR. quicker than you would expect from someone who is 6-1, 200 and very good stop start. some like him at safety but he has the hands of a WR and what does 200# slot wr help with, run blocking! he is going to own the middle of the field in this O. 
 
e higgins: X/Z WR, thick outside guy that can go up and get it. 6-3 220 and he gets angry if you call him an TE and he should. unless he adds another 20+ lbs, he should play outside. could play Z or X WR also. not polished yet but has very good hands. his body will be like anquan boldin/dez bryant. 
 
d wright: Z WR, another outside guy and 6-4 190. he looks like he should play 2 guard and can dunk on an 11ft rim. he must learn to play more physical though and will have to develop that along with learning how to run routs but has amazing tools to work with. I’m hoping he can redshirt. 
 
true slot: we need a pure dynamic shifty, quick slot bc we don’t have one on the roster. even RHM wasn’t one. someone 5-9 to 5-11 “jitterbug.” missed the best one last class. but not sure we can take 5 WRs this class. thats just too many #s when we need bodies elsewhere. 
 
i also love d lee from louisiana and j smith from arizona. both are studs but we have enough talent in state and in town. 
 
OT(2-3) this is the order i prefer them in, kinda but they are all takes and very talented. would love it if we could RS every OL we take in 2019. 
 
s wilkins: only thing lacking is i want to see it vs better opponents. great body and frame for a LT. like 99% of lineman he needs refinement with his hand placement and feet. 
 
t johnson: would like to see a more polished kick from him in pass pro. moves great on pulls. great body, pure tackle but needs 2 years with Hand to be a true stud LT.
 
k green:i think reports have come out that people aren’t sure if he can play tackle. i don’t buy that, he can but needs a couple years. he can absolutely play RT at a all american level if he keep improving.
 
j shepherd: another pure LT with great body for the position. just needs 2 years with Herb and will be great. 
 
need to still watch r parker(louisiana) and j buford(mizzou).
 
OG(1-2) i think we signed a few in 2018, angilau(ROG), ghirmai(LOG) and possibly jones are all OGs. RS whoever we sign. i know i make a distinction btw L & R OG but thats mainly in pass pro better feet i put on backside, runs schemes work both ways. 
 
ejno: love his film at OG, i think he is a left OG, back side. moves very well, perfect for this O bc he can pull every which way and brings his feet. 
 
k thomas: like him a lot also, a right OG for me. has a few lbs he needs to shed if I’m going to pull him more but he is a bad ass. 
 
C(1) - b bragg:this guy is one of my must haves. mean SOB, nasty, iHop lover, and i mean the large stack. he can pull and move so well. great size at 6-4 290. i don’t care where he is ranked, come back to me in 4-5 years when he is going in first couple rounds of NFL draft. f u stanford. unfortunately, i don’t think we will have the luxury of redshirting him. don’t want a rs freshman starting without any experience when the team is going to make the playoffs ;)
 
ill have to watch more film on TEs and with the new reports on t sanders maybe him if he visits. ill have to go back and watch others like j ellis and others we haven’t offered yet but this is what i have now. hope to get back within 2 weeks with the D side. 
 
i hope we take 13 Offensive players-1 QB, 1 RB, 2 TE, 5 OL, 4 WR

Though I believe Cain got more carries last year.  He must be better than his highlights suggest.

From TFB

– Interesting little tidbit here on Texas DB target, Kenyatta Watson. His father told me earlier today that Kenyatta is related to Texas TE, Reese Leitao. Watson Sr said, “my wife’s aunt and Reese’ mom are sisters”.

So, Kenyatta’s mother’s aunt is Reese’ mothers sister. You do the math! – (Super K)

Contractor, interesting you have Wilkins as your top OT.  I haven't watched his film.  I hope he goes to the Dallas Opening or a camp so we can get some verified measurables.

I liked his feet the best as a pass blocker. The hardest thing for me was to compare the levels of competition for guys. SW looks like he is facing 210# DE at times so it's hard to judge how good those guys are. Camp videos show some things but without pads it's difficult to judge. I would like to see all the verified measurables also. SW is listed at 6-7, 280# so as long he is close to that Inlike him as a pure LT. Let me know what u think after watching his tape.

Those who saw him at the Junior Day said he’s a legit 6’6-6’7.
