Per brainiacs, LSU commit Josh White (LB) will be visiting (OV) UT before the dead period.

 

You still think Broughton will be in this class?  We've been the one consistent in this recruitment.  Would hate for some late foul play to cost us from the team that don't win anything.

Its possible, was once probable but not anymore.

Orlando is a great DC. But he is a lousy recruiter and is getting owned by LSU and aggy's DCs who are using his scheme against him.

Too many DE's today just want to pin their ears back and rush the passer. We ask a little more of ours.

It will be interesting when Orlando leaves and Naivar takes over – as to whether we see an improvement in DE and DT recruiting and defensive recruiting overall.

I think Broughton really likes Texas. Now he's seeing some other places and he's liking them as well. I get the impression he falls in love each time he takes a visit somewhere. UT should just try to get him on campus as much as possible and try to get the last visit before he decides.

Brainiacs with an update on Kelee Ringo. Super K has a source close to this one and says Texas is in the top two. Does not specify if we're 1 or 2. Just top two.

Ringo will be in for the UT pool party.

Not expecting a decision until later in the process.

If there's a poster of the day, I've probably won it. lol I'm hearing an echo in here. lol

Okay, let's play. Shall we?

Nahlin says he still feels strongly that UT picks up 2-3 commits, possibly more, in JUNE. There's like 17 days left in June.

For shits and grins, lets agree with the number 3. Who are your three commits in June?

My guesses . . . 

1. Crawford

2. Robinson

3. Dorbah

If it is foul play, we need to play this game if winning is important. That’s how the game has been played but more so now. #ncaa doesn’t give a shit.

We need to go all in, he is the best LB in state and has liked us a lot. Don’t know how we have f’ed up a couple of these recruitments. Other is Temple WR QJ. 

So much talent there, need to capitalize on in 

. Especially after a 10 win, Sugar Bowl win over big bad Sec.

One more name while I’m asking for updates on players I haven’t heard from in awhile. 

Brennan Scott. I really liked his film when I saw it. Need position. 

The issue with Scott is fit within the scheme at Texas. He does a little bit of everything on tape, which is good, but as an off the ball LB he’s not a slam dunk take just yet.

Weird that Ransom and Robinson are both visiting tOSU and UT in the next two weekends, but not the same weekends.  Sure wish Ransom would switch his to match.

If it's 3 commits I'd guess Robinson, Dorbah, and Thompson.  And I'll be very happy to be right.

This has the makings of Bru McCoy part 2. It wouldn't surprise if UT gets back in on Evans. Although, it wouldn't surprise me on anything he does after having UT as his favorite then dropping us like a hot potato. 

 

 

Take Two: Is Alabama leading for five-star RB Zachary Evans?

 
Adam Gorney and Mike Farrell
Rivals.com

Take Two returns with a daily offering tackling an issue in the college football landscape. Rivals.com National Recruiting Analyst Adam Gorney lays out the situation and then receives takes from Rivals.com National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell and an expert from the Rivals.com network of team sites or a regional analyst.

THE STORYLINE

There has been a lot of intriguing news recently when it comes to five-star running back 

.

The Houston (Texas) North Shore star released a top five - Ohio State, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma and Georgia - that shockingly left off Texas and Texas A&M, two in-state programs that have been recruiting Evans from the beginning.

Then three-star offensive tackle and high school teammate 

 committed to Alabama and Evans called the Houston North Shore duo a package deal. As has been seen over the years, sometimes those work out and sometimes they do not.

A day later, four-star running back 

 from Mesquite (Texas) Mesquite Poteet made his pledge to Oklahoma, giving the Sooners commitments from McGowan and four-star   out of Aledo, Texas. It seems hard to believe Evans would join an already-loaded Oklahoma class at running back.

Ohio State, LSU and Georgia are still very much in the running in Evans’ recruitment but should Alabama like its position even more - especially with the Crimson Tide’s outstanding history of recruiting running backs - or is the five-star’s recruitment far too topsy-turvy to make any bold statements just yet?

 
 

FIRST TAKE: ANDREW BONE, BAMAINSIDER.COM

“Alabama has a good chance with him. Last week was his first trip back since last summer. Getting him back on campus was huge for them, building that relationship with the new running backs coach, Charles Huff, kind of getting used to coach Steve Sarkisian. He’s not going to make a decision any time soon. With George committing that helps, but at the same time, I know he said they’re a package deal, but in the end he’ll end up making his own decision. Alabama is right there, but there’s still a long way to go.”

SECOND TAKE: MIKE FARRELL, RIVALS.COM

“It’s still wide open. I’ve heard a lot about package deals over the years and some come true and some don’t, so you can’t rely on that as the true reason why he’s going to pick a school. Evans is going to look at a lot of different factors like comfort and coaches and the way they run the ball and academics.

“Oklahoma has two of the best running backs in the country and they have little trouble recruiting offensive skill players, so they’re probably done at running back. Evans will move on and Alabama has a good shot, but when you look at it I still think Texas or Texas A&M, one of those two, is going to get back in this before it’s all said and done.”

We're not communicating with Evans.

That said, the possibility exists for Texas to pull as many as three 5-star RBs within the next 1.5-2 months, possibly sooner.

I can't remember ever saying that before.

3 RBs, includes 2020 and 2021 classes , right?

I'm not impressed. I was impressed last February when we seriously considered by the top two running backs in the country. However, when one went to Alabama and the other went to Penn State then I wasn't so impressed.

I have no expectations that we will sign more than one and I will be satisfied with one.

The running back year I remember was the year we were seriously considered by So So Jamabo,  Nick Brossette, and Chris Warren. That went on all the way to signing day and when Chris Warren was asked why he chose UT over Washington he said he flipped a coin.

I never felt we were serious players for Jamabo. When he tweeted something about "Asian girls" and UCLA, it was over. lol

Brossette was never going anywhere but LSU.

I will always think about the Chris Warren we saw at times his freshman year and wonder whatever happened to that guy.

    • Rankings Storylines: Longhorns, Aggies off to hot start in Texas   Sam Spiegelman • Rivals.com   The inaugural Rivals250 was unveiled for the Class of 2021 and there is plenty of Texas flavor included in the rankings. There’s a quartet of five-stars inside the top-11 of the group, including  Tommy Brockermeyer , who opens as the No. 1 offensive tackle in the country and the top player from the Lone Star State. As we gear up for the season, Regional Recruiting Analyst Sam Spiegelman examines some of the biggest storylines, trends and observations surrounding the enormously talented group of players inside Texas for 2021 and what he’s looking forward to. RIVALS RANKINGS WEEK FOR 2021 CLASS: Monday: Top 10 revealed | Will USC nab No. 1 Korey Foreman? Tuesday: Rivals100 revealed | New five-stars | Mind of Mike Wednesday: Rivals250 revealed | Teams that should be pleased Thursday/Friday: Position rankings revealed Saturday: Team rankings revealed CLASS OF 2020 RANKINGS: Rivals250 | Position | Team | State HOT START FOR HORNS         Quaydarius Davis (Sam Spiegelman) Tom Herman’s team found its stride this summer as it began to add quality reinforcements to its 2020 class and landed some major foundational pieces to next year’s group as well.  Quaydarius Davis ,  Billy Bowman Jr.  and  Jalen Milroe  highlight the Rivals100 commitments for Texas, while  Hayden Conner and  Derrick Harris Jr.  are notable pledges from the Rivals250. There’s certainly a long way to go before Signing Day in 2021, but there are clear paths for the Longhorns to continue their in-state tear. Five-star offensive tackle  Tommy Brockermeyer  is a Texas legacy and  Savion Byrd , another five-star tackle, has distinct ties to Austins. The other two five-stars atop the state rankings are running back  Camar Wheaton , who has been a steady visitor to Austin, and  Bryce Foster , who’s teammates with Conner and is feeling the heat to team up in The Forty Acres. Elsewhere, Herman and his staff have done early work getting into good spots with notable ranked prospects such as  Ja’Tavion Sanders ,  Tunmise Adeleye ,  JD Coffey ,  Landon Jackson ,  LJ Johnson Jr.  and  Latrell Neville , among several others. It’s certainly possible to see the Horns land multiple in-state five-stars before it’s all said and done. SHARE YOUR THOUGHTS WITH TEXAS FANS AT ORANGEBLOODS.COM FOUNDATION IN PLACE FOR AGGIES         Shadrach Banks (Nick Lucero/Rivals.com) It should come as no surprise that like Texas, the Aggies have hit on a few of their top junior targets early on. That includes Rivals100 wideout  Shadrach Banks Jr.  and their quarterback of the future,  Eli Stowers , who is sitting just outside the Rivals100 but will certainly have a chance to crack it with a big fall. Of course, this is Jimbo Fisher’s program and that means the best is yet to come.  Bryce Foster  is a Texas A&M legacy, which gives A&M the early edge with the nation’s best guard — yes, someone who’s affectionately nicknamed “The Mountain.” Elsewhere, the Aggies have also positioned themselves well with a bevy of in-state targets such as  Donovan Jackson ,  Jaedeon Roberts ,  Marcus Burris  and  Reueben Fatheree . If nothing, it makes for some intriguing in-state battles between Texas and Texas A&M for some of the best in America. LONG LIST OF IN-STATE QBS AND THEY COULD BE LEAVING THE STATE         Preston Stone (Nick Lucero/Rivals.com) Two of Texas’ top signal-callers have given early commitments to the in-state powerhouses. That, of course, is  Jalen Milroe , who has surfaced as the face of the Horns’ 2021 class as the quarterback and the lead recruiter of the group. There’s also  Eli Stowers , an early Texas A&M pledge that the staff fell in love with after watching him sling it at camp this summer. There’s still plenty of dominoes that need to fall, though. That includes the state’s top passer,  Preston Stone , as well ranked quarterbacks  Garrett Nussmeier  and  Dematrius Davis Jr.  and intriguing three-stars  Sawyer Robertson ,  Behren Morton  and  Shedeur Sanders . With spots in Austin and Aggieland already reserved, signs point to a lot of this Texas talent heading out-of-state. Texas was a quiet leader for Stone for some time, but Milroe’s commitment opens up the door for USC or Alabama, or perhaps a local program like SMU to steal to a potential five-star talent. Nussmeier camped all across the Southeast and even into the Midwest. Davis has been closely linked to LSU, Florida State and Nebraska, but Texas A&M continues to recruit the state champion. ROOM FOR RANKING SHIFTS?         Cody Jackson (Rivals.com) A quick glance at the talent inside Texas this cycle shows that the state is very heavy at quarterback, offensive tackle, wide receiver and defensive linemen. Naturally, that influx of talent makes for intriguing rankings debates at multiple positions. Stone debuted as the state’s top passer and plays in an offense where he’s in line to produce incredible numbers, but there’s a case for Milroe, Nussmeier, Stowers and Davis to all make a charge for that spot. Brockermeyer is the No. 1 tackle in the land with sophomore film that leaves little doubt about the ranking, but an injury will sideline the five-star this fall. Could fellow five-star Byrd or Jackson make a convincing enough case to close the gap on Brockermeyer? Banks replaced Davis as the state’s top wideout, but this is going to be a wildly competitive battle to the finish line. Neville is another Rivals100 talent that changed teams and could star in a high-octane offense this fall. Oklahoma pledge  Cody Jackson has shades of  CeeDee Lamb  in his game and will have a chance to play the same role in the same Foster High offense. Another name to watch is  Ketron Jackson , who made the Rivals250 cut and should be in store for a breakout campaign at Lancaster this season. PLENTY OF POLARIZING PROSPECTS         Shemar Turner (Rivals.com) There are five-stars and four-stars, and then there’s always a few prospects that you gravitate toward because they’re so versatile, a little bit hard to size up but the potential is real. There’s a few in Texas’ 2021 crop for sure.   Dametrious Crownover  added a fourth star and cracked the back end of the Rivals250 and it’ll hard to fully evaluate the talented Grandview athlete until he settles on a position. He’s a basketball player and that natural athleticism, vertical ability and strong hands usually translates well to the tight end position. Several programs are also after Crownover at defensive end, where he’s a bit raw but there’s a lot to like about his ability to chase down quarterbacks.   Shemar Turner  is another four-star inside the Rivals250 who has yet to reach his full potential, but he flashes a lot of promising signs that he could be a havoc-causing defensive end or outside linebacker off the edge. Turner turned in a big camp season and plays all over the front seven for a loaded DeSoto squad. He’s in store for a big junior campaign if he can put everything together on the field.   Marcus Burris  is a tight end, a defensive end and a defensive tackle. Whatever position you put him in, expect to be impressed. He’s listed as a tackle on Rivals because, ultimately, that’s where I expect him to fit in. All of the athleticism he flashes catching passes could come into play down the road when we’re evaluating him against the other top-flight tackles in the country. And then there’s  Reuben Fatheree , a 6-foot-8, near-300-pound mammoth who is one of the most intriguing offensive tackles in the class. He’s also a star on the hardwood and played both right guard and left tackle a season ago. Fatheree has impressed this offseason and is coming into his own as a pass-blocking tackle. https://n.rivals.com/news/rankings-storylines-longhorns-aggies-off-to-hot-start-in-texas
