Top college football recruiters for the Class of 2019

2. Drew Mehringer
School:
 Texas
Top commitment: ATH Bru McCoy

Mehringer isn't far behind Niedermeyer because of what he added to this Texas roster, especially on offense. He coaches wide receivers and is going to have a ton of talent in his room next season. That now includes the No. 1-ranked athlete in the country, Bru McCoy. Many thought the Longhorns would win out for McCoy on early signing day because of the relationship Mehringer had built with him throughout the process. McCoy enrolled at USC instead, but he transferred to Texas shortly thereafter. A big part of that decision came down to the work Mehringer had put in during the recruiting process.

Mehringer also had a hand in landing ESPN 300 athlete Jordan Whittingtonand four-star wide receivers Jake Smith and Marcus Washington, as well as three-star receiver Kennedy Lewis. Mehringer did a lot to improve the athleticism on the Longhorns' offense in the years to come.

After losing Leal last year, Texas can’t afford to lose Broughton to the Aggies this time around. Something tells me the staff won’t get caught with their guard down this time.

They will bring every armor and artillery with this one

RIngo does not plan on announcing for a while... Broughton just got interesting. He went from having no interest in aggy to having them at the top of his list with Texas.....

Our most recent commit was going to announce at end of summer. Anything can happen, any time. Especially when your coach is a former AA from Texas.

They don't have much. Just point to Daylon Mack and say "WTH?"

And aggy has exhibited nothing to suggest they're on the upswing. Same old 3rd-4th place finish in a division of a conference.

They couldn't beat Texas in recruiting, even on the momentum of a $75 million coaching hire.

In Mack’s defense, he played well this past year and flashed at the Senior Bowl. He wasn’t the five star folks pegged him at but I don’t think his story is done just yet.

And of course they will use Myles Garrett on every kid that will listen.

Setting the line at three 5 stars in the 2020 class. You taken the O/U? 

I might straddle the fence here and say three.

A couple of things will factor in. We must do well, again, and show continued climb in our trajectory. Aggy needs to go 0 for 4 against their big boys on their schedule. That will eliminate the myth Jimbo will save them from themselves.

Aggy gets Clemson, Bama, Georgia, and LSU. Only one of those is at home (Bama)

And we need to show some dominance over OU, whether thats once or twice during the season.

Ringo, Johnny Wilson, Flowe, Evans and possibly Broughton and Jackson could end up 5*'s.  Seems like we are in a good spot with all those guys.  Sure a couple haven't visited, but they will soon.

Texas 2019 spring football preview: With marquee QB, Longhorns are back

Is Texas back?

The Longhorns just might be.

 
ADVERTISEMENT

Coming off its best season in almost a decade, coach Tom Herman's bunch has big goals for 2019. Four-time defending Big 12 champ Oklahoma stands in the way. But with quarterback Sam Ehlinger returning to lead a team overflowing with blue-chip talent, the Longhorns could finally make a return back to the pantheon of college football.

2018 record: 10-4

Spring practice start date: TBA

Strength heading into spring: For the first time in 10 years, Texas will enter a season boasting one of the top quarterbacks in college football. After flashing moments of brilliance as a true freshman, Ehlinger took a major step forward as a sophomore, leading Texas to its first 10-win season since 2009.

As one of the most effective dual-threat quarterbacks in the country, Ehlinger passed for 3,296 yards while completing 64.7 percent of his passes. He also tossed 25 touchdown passes to only five interceptions. On the ground, Ehlinger added 482 yards and another 16 touchdowns. And in the Sugar Bowl against Georgia, he controlled the game with three rushing touchdowns, connecting on 70.4 percent of his 27 passing attempts.

Can Ehlinger elevate his game to yet another level in 2019? If so, Texas will have the goods to challenge Oklahoma for Big 12 supremacy -- and, perhaps, for a spot in the College Football Playoff, as well.

Question mark heading into spring: After relying almost exclusively on Ehlinger at times to supply a consistent ground attack the past two years, the Longhorns desperately needed to bolster the rest of their running game -- from the offensive line to the running backs.

Although a chunk of the offensive line is gone from last season, the Longhorns bring back a cornerstone in four-year starter Zach Shackelford. The spring will be critical in piecing together the rest of the group.

Besides being a better run-blocking team, the Longhorns also need more dynamic playmaking from their running backs than they've gotten since losing 2016 Doak Walker Award winner D'Onta Foreman.

Former ESPN 300 signee Keaontay Ingram should be given every opportunity to be the primary back after rushing for 708 yards as a freshman last season. The Longhorns, however, do have other options.

Either way, Texas has to produce a more efficient running game to protect Ehlinger and open up a more balanced attack.

Instant impact addition: With the upcoming graduations of Anthony Wheeler and Gary Johnson, the Longhorns will be light on experience at linebacker. Junior college transfer Caleb Johnson should help fill the gap after signing with the Longhorns in December.

Rated the No. 2 junior college outside linebacker and No. 22 overall juco transfer, Johnson has the talent to start right away. Or at the very least provide quality depth for Todd Orlando's defense.

2019 game to get excited about now: Although the Oklahoma showdown on Oct. 12 will be massive, the Longhorns won't have to wait until then to play in the national spotlight. LSU visits Austin in Week 2 (Sept. 7) in a barometer test for both Tom Herman and the Big 12.

Even though LSU won 10 games playing in the brutal SEC West last season, Texas could actually be the slight favorite with the game being in Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

Beat LSU, and Texas could head into the Red River Showdown ranked in the top five for the first time since 2008, when the Longhorns beat Oklahoma on the way to finishing third in the polls.

Spring storyline to watch: After ranking third in the Big 12 in defensive efficiency last season, the Longhorns face the task of replacing eight starters, including All-Big 12 defensive end Charles Omenihu, cornerback Kris Boyd and Johnson. Still, talent remains for the Longhorns to be stingier in 2019.

Safety Caden Sterns is a big reason why. Sterns was the Big 12 Defensive Freshman of the Year and a first-team All-Big 12 performer. He is also flanked by a host of talented underclassmen in the secondary, including B.J. Foster, Anthony Cook and DeMarvion Overshown.

Up front, Malcolm Roach leads the way after returning for his senior year. The Longhorns are banking that Roach could have the breakout final season that Omenihu delivered in 2018 on the way to being named the Big 12 Defensive Lineman of the Year. Joseph Ossaicould be in for a big season as well after starring in the Sugar Bowl.

With so much inexperience elsewhere, the Longhorns could have some bumpy moments early on. But this group has the potential to emerge into one of the Big 12's best defenses by season's end.

Will ex-USC signee Bru McCoy be granted eligibility to play for Texas in 2019? Here are 3 factors to consider

With national signing day in the rearview mirror, Texas still has unfinished business in its class of 2019.

The decision of elite recruit Bru McCoy to switch from Southern California to Texas helped the Longhorns vault into No. 3 spot in the 247Sports composite team rankings. Projected as a receiver, McCoy spent a couple of weeks enrolled at USC before being released from his national letter of intent and transferring to Texas.

But because of that short stay in LA, he must request a waiver from the NCAA to be eligible this coming season.

 
ADVERTISING

Expect to hear how Kliff Kingsbury's decision to leave USC as offensive coordinator to become the Arizona Cardinals coach affected McCoy and the way he would be used. USC had yet to fill the OC position -- it later hired UNT's Graham Harrell -- before McCoy left.

Another key factor will be the reworked NCAA standard focusing on the "health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete."

While trying to read what the NCAA might do in any situation is like to trying decipher the ancient Sumerian language, here are three things to consider.

The Justin Fields decision

The former Georgia quarterback was recently granted immediate eligibility at Ohio State after transferring following his freshman season. 

While encouraging for Texas and McCoy, the situation is not necessarily an-apples-to-apples comparison. Fields stayed a full season at Georgia. He also was the subject of racial taunts by a Bulldogs’ baseball player during the game, although it’s unknown if that was part of his appeal. 

The trend line 

It’s not just the high-profile cases like Fields that are being approved. The Associated Press reported last month that nearly 80 percent of the Division I football waiver requests (50 of 63) were granted by the NCAA in the last year. 

No pushback from USC

In the case of Shea Patterson’s transfer from Mississippi to Michigan last year, there was initial resistance. USC hasn’t shown a public inclination to challenge. 

“Bru’s situation, it was one that was personal,” USC coach Clay Helton told reporters on signing day, adding that McCoy was a “phenomenal person. Phenomenal athlete. Wish him nothing but the best.”

Based on the Fields case, Texas could find out sometime during spring practice, which starts March 11 with the spring game April 13.
