Per Mike Roach, Texas will host Florida graduate transfer LB Kylan Johnson this weekend. Johnson is formerly of Dallas Skyline and could potentially provide Texas with some valuable depth at a thin position. 

This is a huge development.  He may not be a difference-maker as a player, but having a guy who has played a lot of P5 snaps would be a major boost to our LB room.

Was initially a Safety so he should have some good speed.  I think it's a no-brainer.  Staff got him to visit quickly so they must like something with this kid.  We've acted fast on every grad transfer we've gone after.

 Anyone know if we have interest in the running back from Clemson who has entered the portal? Can’t think of his name. 

I haven't heard that we have. I saw his name drop.

IDK, we have Ingram, Whittington and Johnson as a pretty good 1-2-3. If Johnson can stay healthy, finally, he's a home run threat. If you're Taveon Feaster, do you want to come and be one of four?

Heck yeah take him if he wants to come. He was listed as the top all purpose back in the country the year he came out. We need depth.

Take Two: Will Oklahoma or Texas land Bryson Washington?

 has more than 20 offers, but the four-star safety made a huge move in his recruitment recently when he narrowed his choices to Oklahoma and Texas.

That is especially exciting for people following his recruitment because this is just another example of the Sooners and the Longhorns battling for an elite prospect. Texas seemed to hold an edge for the Houston (Texas) C.E. King standout, but a recent official visit to Oklahoma could have completely changed everything.

Washington had a phenomenal trip to Norman. He loves the coaching staff and the players there and he could make a huge impact in defensive coordinator Alex Grinch’s new defense. But the four-star has taken numerous visits to Texas, and he’s taking his official there in early June before he makes his decision around July 4.

Texas will have the final shot to convince Washington that it’s the right place for him. It seemed like the Longhorns were the clear frontrunner. But Oklahoma did a whole lot to close the gap and possibly even take the slightest lead heading through the spring.

Will it be Texas or Oklahoma for the four-star safety?

FIRST TAKE: JASON SUCHOMEL, ORANGEBLOODS.COM

“For the longest time, I felt Texas had a commanding lead there. He’s been on campus so many times, he’s already had positive things to say about the program and he has such a great relationship with the entire Texas staff. But it does certainly seem like that pendulum has swung in Oklahoma’s direction after his recent official visit.

“Does that mean Oklahoma is leading? I’m not sure. My gut tells me it’s pretty close to a neck-and-neck race, but Texas will get the last visit in late June before he announces. Anytime you get the last crack at a player, that can usually carry some weight. I still slightly favor Texas for that reason, but it really is a tough one to call right now.”

SECOND TAKE: MIKE FARRELL, RIVALS.COM  

“This is going to come down a lot to the last visits with Tom Herman and Lincoln Riley. That’s what makes the recruiting battle so exciting between those two schools because it’s a question of who gets them on campus last. They’re both so good at closing and they’re both so good at in-person recruiting that getting the last visit suddenly becomes a big deal. 

"We will see this play out more and more as we head into official visits and more and more as we head into 2021 and 2022. Because Texas has the last visit and he’s been leaning toward that school. I think it’s going to get him, but it’s really hard to predict with these two coaches because they both do such a good job

I disagree we can use another running back for depth alone. Ingram will be the starter however, the backup spot is open with a true freshman, a senior with injury issues and another RB who averaged 3.6 avg competing for the job.   It looks like Whittington will be a star, however if t Feaster is better that can only help us.

Seeing Kirk Johnson getting his wrist hurt in the spring game did not get me confidence that he can stay healthy or count on him.

You make a good point. Whittington spent half of last season injured, too.

I remain hopeful we see a healthy Kirk Johnson this season. I think he's a stud, if he ever gets on track.

Word I'm hearing is there is some panic in Goonerland. Apparently, the offense is the source of concern, as in, what the hell is this? Not what they're accustomed to up there.

An OU friend who told me that also said he thinks two years before OU's D is where it should be.

As long as Riley is at OU, defense will always take a back seat.  This is a culture problem for them, maybe Riley changes, maybe he doesn't, but I wouldn't bet on it.  

He's still going to get elite offensive talent, but Herman is building the better overall team.  I cannot think of a single DL or LB recruit that they have a good shot at for this class.  That great DL haul of 2 years ago has been obliterated.  Michael Thompson has been moved to OL, Ron Tatum hit the road, and Jalen Redmond may never play again with health issues.

I think you'll start to see us win more times than not in this matchup going forward.

Where are you hearing there is some panic in Goonerland? And why? I mean, come on, they've been in the playoffs 2 years in a row. They will have probably one of the top 10 QB's next year and they are recruiting quite well both last year and this year. Doesn't make sense why there is some panic.

I mean, come on. I specifically said who I heard it from the post you're responding to.

Why? Because thats what he observed and it bothered him I would guess.

I seriously LOVE you guys who tell me QBs who've never taken a snap will be top 10 next year. lol

 We should go all out for Feaster. 

Why would he come here?  He's not going to choose to leave being the 3rd RB at Clemson to come be the 3rd RB at Texas.  GTs want a place where there is a gaping roster gap and they are very likely to start.  That's what got us Anderson and Watson last year, and why we've got a great shot with LB Johnson this year.  I'd love to get one, but our solid 4-deep at RB is not going to be appealing to a GT.

My bad. I did completely miss that you mentioned your source. 

And the QB I'm talking about is Hurts. And I did hedge a bit by saying "probably". And he has taken many snaps as a starting QB.

My bad too then. Yes, Hurts is a good one. But I don't think he's anywhere close to Murray or Mayfield. Its hard to look bad when you're surrounded by Bama players.

His gist was that the offense looked dysfunctional. The OL wasn't nearly up to parr, TE play was even suspect he said. He's not real proud of OU's defense but said they are way ahead of the offense right now.

Do you mean to say the OL isn't up to Logan Parr?

If the O isn't up to the D, that's a great sign for us. WVU's QB looked abysmal in the bowl and a new coach. If there is ever a season to win the Big 12/10 this is it.

    • No Jones returns when they expect a possible fake or know it’ll be a fair catch. So all punts from around midfield or 4th and short. He can better break up a possible fake. Jake Smith is returning when they think they will have a return. 
    • Bill Haisten: Mike Gundy savors a sign of defensive progress as Longhorns loom   Last week, Joel Klatt designated Oklahoma State as the No. 1 sleeper team in college football. “(The Cowboys aren’t) even ranked yet,” the Fox Sports television analyst tweeted, “but they will be soon.”   During the first period of Saturday’s Oklahoma State-Tulsa game at Chapman Stadium, the Cowboys looked like an underrated dynamo. In bolting to a 17-0 lead, they averaged 8 yards per play. After the hot start, however, OSU wasn’t a sleeper. OSU was sleepy. During the entirety of the second period and some of the third, OSU was outplayed by the Golden Hurricane. The Cowboys trailed 21-20 at halftime with plenty of bad to go around. There had been shoddy tackling. There had been a terrible play-call (a 2-yard pass in a third-and-5 situation). There had been a spectacularly conspicuous failure in coverage — a mistake that resulted in a wide-open Keylon Stokes collecting a 39-yard TD pass from TU quarterback Zach Smith. Neither of OSU’s safeties was within 10 yards of Stokes. OSU fans and Mike Gundy recognized an unsettling, obvious truth: the Cowboys’ poor second quarter bore a striking resemblance to OSU’s sorry 2018 performances at Kansas State and Baylor. The road favorite each time — and in spite of talent advantages — OSU lost in both of those games. The Oklahoma State of Saturday’s second period would have no chance of beating Texas in next week’s Big 12 opener at Austin. Texas would truck the second-quarter Cowboys. However, the Oklahoma State of the second half has a chance to win in Austin — for the sixth consecutive time. After spending 20 halftime minutes in the sweatbox that qualifies as a visitors’ locker room, the Cowboys returned with substantially better defense against TU. During the second half of a 40-21 Cowboy victory, Tulsa was scoreless. Hurricane QBs Smith and Seth Boomer were 10-of-22 passing. The Golden Hurricane run game amounted to 32 yards on 21 attempts.       TOP ARTICLES1/5READ MOREOSU visits TU, OU travels to UCLA:Find all our college coverage here     Before halftime, TU averaged 5.7 yards per snap. After halftime: 3.2. Gundy praised playmakers Chuba Hubbard, Tylan Wallace and Spencer Sanders after the game, but OSU’s coach seemed most pleased with his defensive coaches. With 10 minutes left to play and TU trailing by 12 points, Philip Montgomery left his offense on the field for a fourth-and-5 gamble from the OSU 6-yard line. Gundy himself called for a safety blitz. Kolby Harvell-Peel bolted into the backfield for a 9-yard sack of Smith. “That was a really, really good job by our (defensive staff) — making adjustments at halftime, and then our players taking the information from the locker room to the field to shut (TU) down,” said Gundy, who as an OSU quarterback, assistant and head coach is 10-4 against the Golden Hurricane.   “And, obviously,” Gundy added, “we rushed the ball pretty well.” Oklahoma State rushed for 337 yards. Hubbard, who solidified his status as an elite tailback, carried 32 times for 256 yards and three TDs. In his past seven games, Hubbard has run for 947 yards and 12 TDs. If that 135-yard average were sustained over a 13-game season, it would result in 1,755 yards. In Oklahoma State football history, only Barry Sanders, Terry Miller, Ernest Anderson and Thurman Thomas have gotten single-season rushing totals of at least 1,755 yards. With gold-medal track speed and amazing balance, Hubbard is off to a 521-yard, three-game start this season. He and Wallace give Oklahoma State a chance to compete in every game, but to actually contend in the Big 12, OSU consistently needs the type of defense it executed during Saturday’s second half. Last year, OSU was dogged by stupid penalties. Against TU, while trailing on the road and in need of something positive with three minutes left in the third period, the Cowboys got a third-down stop — and then got flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct. TU was given a fresh set of downs near midfield. If the bad penalties are eliminated and if the Hubbard-Wallace big plays are bundled with the sort of defense seen during Saturday’s second half, OSU would be positioned to steal another road win in Austin. Also, Klatt would gain some traction with his contention Oklahoma State is a national “sleeper” to watch.   https://www.tulsaworld.com/sports/college/osu/bill-haisten-mike-gundy-savors-a-sign-of-defensive-progress/article_a9933b65-8592-56c0-bcf9-6ed312b792c6.html
    • Commitment 101: Three-star running back Ty Jordan is a versatile weapon Posted September 15th, 2019 Mike Craven Hookem.com staff  mcraven@hookem.com Advertisement The Longhorns added an all-purpose back to the 2020 recruiting class on Sunday night when three-star West Mesquite product Ty Jordan became Texas’ 19th commitment of the cycle. Tom Herman’s program is inching towards another top-10 class after a slow start. The Longhorns currently hold the Big 12’s top recruiting class. Jordan held 25 offers and picked Texas over strong pitches from USC and Tennessee.    427 people are talking about this         Texas plans to couple Jordan with five-star running back commit Bijan Robinson. While Robinson is a three-down option with the size to carry a heavy workload, Jordan is a scat-back with the potential to play running back, slot receiver, and in the return game. Jordan is a two-time all-district selection.  Jordan rushed for 1,236 yards and 16 touchdowns last season, adding 169 yards and two touchdowns on 14 receptions. He’s the No. 11-ranked all-purpose back in the nation and a top-60 prospect in Texas, per 247Sports composite rankings.  Skill set: Jordan is a modern offensive weapon not defined by position. He’ll play all over the field for Texas. Jordan is a potential third-down specialist at running back with the ability to play slot receiver, threaten defenses on jet-sweeps, and contribute in the return game on special teams. The three-star considers his versatility the strength of his game.  “The one-dimensional back that just runs isn’t valued anymore,” said Jordan at the Under Armour camp in Dallas during the spring. “Coaches want backs who are dynamic and are three-dimensional with running, blocking and receiving. It’s a mismatch for a defense. I can go out in the slot and we don’t need to change personnel and that’s an advantage against defenses.” He’s not big enough to handle every-down running back duties at 5-9, 181 pounds, but he doesn’t need to be in order to fulfill his future role in Austin. Jordan is the type of playmaker Texas missed out on in Mookie Cooper and Ronald Moore. The Longhorns hope he can bring that type of excitement to the offense. He’s the type of player who can create big plays for an offense that lacked those in 2018.  Immediate impact: Jordan should provide Texas an immediate option on special teams and are certain offensive packages. Don’t expect him to enroll on campus and compete for a spot in the two-deep with the likes of Keaontay Ingram, Jordan Whittington, and potentially Derrian Brown. That’s not mentioning Robinson arriving in the same class. That doesn’t mean he can’t carve out a role with a limited number of plays, especially with the new rule allowing participation in four games without losing eligibility.  Fitting into the program: The next step for Texas’ offense is the big play. The Longhorns hope to address that issue on the recruiting trail and Jordan is another swiss-army knife type weapon for Herman and offensive coordinator Tim Beck to slowly work into Texas’ offense. Jordan’s work ethic and a love for the game should translate well into Herman’s blue-collar program.  Recruiting at the position: Texas’ coaching staff, specifically running back coach Stan Drayton, needed a big year recruiting the position in the 2020 cycle. Drayton overachieved by landing Robinson and Jordan, a duo built for Texas’ future offensive plans. The Longhorns couldn’t have done better considering in-state five-stars Jase McClellan and Zachary Evans didn’t join the class. Instead of fans talking about the in-state misses, the duo of Robinson and Jordan give Texas building blocks for the future.  Texas' 2020 recruiting class A list of Texas commitments in the 2020 recruiting class.
