I don't see anyway Lindberg doesn't end up at Texas.  He retweeted the Mookie commitment and he's grown close with current Texas commits and more than likely future commits.  Plus the bro is at Texas and mom seems to love the Longhorns.  

Gotta stay weary of Stanford, but Texas right at the top of the list for him.

Aldine MacArthur DB Joshua Eaton gets an offer from Texas while on campus. 

https://247sports.com/Player/Joshua-Eaton-46042923/

 

IMO, he is one of the must-haves in this class. Great size, speed and can stop on a dime. Great body control. Do want.

Eaton reminds me of another recruit we found in Irving a few years back . . . Michael Huff.

 

Ringo, Eaton, Phillips, Thompson, Washington, Alford, Watts, Latham.  Going to be fun to see how it all shakes out.

Really want some of these DL guys to hop on board.

Remember they said we'd be turning some kids away, especially in a year where we're probably going to have a smaller class.

Washington said today we are recruiting him the hardest and it's not even close.  I'm waiting for his Jr. hudl to drop because his Soph. hudl looked pretty salty.  He was laying people out.

MORE TAKE TWO: Is Jake Smith the next Christian McCaffrey? | Why isn't Clemson bringing in top-five classes?

THE STORYLINE 

SEC domination in the rankings is not a new phenomenon, but that conference took five-star signings to a whole new level this recruiting cycle as it signed 18 of 30 five-star prospects, the highest number in the history of Rivals dating back to 2002.

In the 2018 recruiting class, SEC schools signed 36 percent of the five-stars. The year before it was 38 percent. Some years, it’s in the 50th percentile and usually it’s hovering in the 40s. The average since the inception of Rivals is 44 percent of five-stars signing with the SEC. But the 2019 crop saw the highest amount ever at 60 percent as four of the top five players in the country and eight of the top 10 signed with SEC programs.

That’s complete domination.

Alabama’s national profile certainly helps the conference. Georgia’s emergence especially in the last few years under coach Kirby Smart - along with back-to-back team recruiting titles - gives the conference an added boost. The proliferation of top recruits playing at Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy has been a benefit to SEC teams as well, with 

 and  heading to Alabama this recruiting cycle and   going to Georgia. All three were five-stars at IMG this past season.

Will the SEC’s stranglehold of five-star prospects end anytime soon? Or does its own success feed the beast even more?

  FIRST TAKE: JAKE REUSE, UGASPORTS.COM  

“I don’t think it’s an anomaly. A lot of factors are in play and part of it is the combine invites. You’re seeing the SEC being hoisted up on the stage so often. We saw it with Georgia getting 

 and   as captains and they’re the starting running backs in the Super Bowl. It’s a ripple effect.

“It all trickles down from the highest level into the high school level. That’s as impactful as anything.”

  SECOND TAKE: MIKE FARRELL, RIVALS.COM  

“The SEC gets the most talent. It puts the most talent in the combine. It puts the most talent in the NFL Draft. That hasn’t changed, and I don’t think it will. The SEC teams also feed off each other. They have to play each other and knock each other off, whereas now Clemson is clearly the best team in the ACC, and it’s not even close. Clearly, Texas and Oklahoma are the two best teams in the Big 12, and you’ve got quite a bit of separation between the top and bottom of the Big Ten as well. The Pac-12 is out of the discussion right now when it comes to playoff contenders.

“IMG plays in. You have to have Florida State, Clemson and Miami, among others, land some of those kids. Originally, it was thought to be a feeder for Florida State when Chris Weinke was there, and it’s turned into something that makes the SEC stronger every year.”

What about the Kitan Crawford offer? Maybe he's grown an inch or two since these highlights lol. He's certainly electric / fast as hell and a hell of a ball player but at that size I only see a return specialist and that's a tough sell when you've got badass players who can return the ball and play other positions.

I really liked the sub-article in there about Jake Smith comparing him to Christian McCaffery.

    • Baker Mayfield teaches 'Horns Down' gesture at football camp Never change, Baker Mayfield. The Cleveland Browns star and former Heisman winner at Oklahoma traveled back to his roots this week, hosting a football camp at Lake Travis High in Austin, Texas, where dozens of campers learned nuggets about quarterbacking and a little something extra involving the Sooners' rivalry with the Longhorns. With campers huddled around him, Mayfield reportedly flashed the "Horns Down" hand gesture with a hearty "Boomer Sooner" to kick-off the event at his old stomping grounds. Mayfield was known for his 'Horns Down' moments throughout his career at Oklahoma, doing so during a 45-40 win over Texas during the 2016 season and bringing back the hand-sign last year at a Sooners basketball game vs. the Longhorns. “It’s quite the honor to be back home and have this,” Mayfield said, via The Statesman. “But I think the best part about it is that we had some kids yell ‘Boomer Sooner’ that normally wouldn’t.” The "Horns Down" gesture has been a controversial topic for years and hit arguably its highest moment last season during Oklahoma's run to another Big 12 Championship. Conference officials placed the gesture under the unsportsmanlike conduct classification and warned the Sooners prior to the Big 12 final it would result in a penalty. Texas coach Tom Herman was not a fan of the "Horns Down" prodding and made his thoughts known publicly before the final showdown vs. the Sooners. After beating Texas 39-27 to clinch a spot in the College Football Playoff, Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley tossed a "Horns Down" during the post-game celebratory photo. All in good fun, Mayfield was back at Lake Travis where he set several program records before walking on a Texas Tech, where he became the first true freshman walk-on in FBS history to start a season opener at quarterback. “I think it goes back to the fact that if you looked at me, I wasn’t going to be an NFL player. I just set my mind to it,” Mayfield said, via The Statesman. “It was something that I dreamed of doing, and I just really worked for it. These kids, it doesn’t matter what they want to do in life. It doesn’t have to be an athlete. Just work for it. You set your mind to something, and you’ve got to set your goals high.” 1COMMENTS After leaving Texas Tech for Oklahoma, Mayfield threw for 4,627 yards and 43 touchdowns in his final season with the Sooners, winning the school’s sixth Heisman Trophy. He set the FBS single-season passing efficiency record, with a 198.9 rating, which shattered his previous record of 196.4 he posted in 2016. Mayfield twice led the Sooners to the College Football Playoff and was instrumental in the development of Riley as one of college football's top offensive coaches.   https://247sports.com/college/oklahoma/Article/Baker-Mayfield-Cleveland-Browns-Oklahoma-Sooners-Horns-Down-football-camp-132904028/
