Good morning, everyone! My apologies for the past few weeks not consisting of our Friday Chat. However, we are back!

As of now, this is the list we have for Texas Junior Days. Yesterday, a couple guys could not confirm if they were attending, so we will update that asap.

I want to take some time to give a special shoutout to Mike Roach. Mike is one of the best in the business, and is a huge reason that I reached out to HornSports in the first place. Mike has taught me so much about the integrity and honesty that should come with sports journalism, and for that I am thankful. Wherever Mike goes, I know he is going to kill it. Best of luck, Mike!

It appears that some of the Texas players are learning that Tom Herman actually goes through with what he says. It's been reported by multiple outlets that there could be up to 10 players "considering" leaving the program. We do not know who these players are, but can only imagine the majority of them are ones that do not contribute much. Tom Herman is definitely pushing these kids to the limit mentally.

The Texas Orange/White game is set for April 15th at 1:00 p.m. I will be there covering the action.

Lastly, Texas baseball is back against Rice this evening at 5:30 p.m. I'm excited to see what David Pierce's squad can do. I've been craving some baseball!

Any recruiting or team questions? Fire away! I'll be here all day answering some questions, and I'm sure some others like Daniel will drop by as well.

I think it'll primarily be guys that are buried in the depth chart. Your Cameron Townshend's of the program.

Thanks

 

I'm a big fan of Sanders also. As a sophomore he was their best player and went both ways as a QB/SS. It'll be interesting to see how Sanders responds his Senior year from an ACL tear late in the playoffs

Hmm good question! I'll have to check with Aaron on that.

Should Texas pursue 2 running backs in this class? I like Ingram, however Jaelen Gill is also pretty damn good. Also really like TJ, but it looks like he's an OU lean (at least according to 247).

- A couple of players have gone to compliance to complain about the number of hours they have been working out.

1. Shot in the dark I would said BJ Foster or Jaqualyn Crawford.

2. Tie between BJ Foster and Max Wright.

3. Justin Watkins

Don't like throwing out names with stuff like this. Lets see how the spring plays out.

I'd go all in on Ingram in-state and I would try to add an OOS stud like Gill. Take two for sure.

Wouldn't mind taking RB Ta'Zhawn Henry from Lamar as the 2nd running back. Reminds me of Darren Sproles.

Don't think he will end up being a take.

Who do you think the staff targets at OT? 

 

Any JuCo prospects/positions that the staff is looking at? 

 

I'd guess JuCo might be an option for DT, LB, and maybe OT.

They offered Rafiti Ghirmai out of Frisco Wakeland already and sent some offers out to elite OOS prospects. I'm high on Ghirmai personally.

Herman offered this guy at Houston, might be worth monitoring down the line.

Either D'Shawn Jamison, Trey Stratford, or BJ Foster. It's a toss up.

 

BJ Foster or Brennan Eagles.

 

I'll go with CJ Moore.
