    texbound reacted to Bear19 in 2021 Offensive Linemen Texas Should Target   
    My guess is his offers are very few because he is over rated by the $9.95ers.  I think it’s that simple.

    I'm with SHA on this one.  If Texas was the only school not to offer him then i would really question their scouting.  However, it is kind of odd that teams like TT, Baylor, TCU, KState, OkieSt, and even Kansas haven't offered this kid. Those teams should be all over him.  There has to be something all of these programs are not seeing in him.  Obviously, we as fans see his ranking and immediately question our team for not offering him, but maybe their assessment and scouting just doesn't rank him that high.  Shit, Alabama hasn't even offered him and they offer every mid-3 to 5* kid under the sun.  They may not take them, but they always offer.

    Those MFer's better stay the F away from him.  If he switches to OU then i give up.

    I thought Calvin Anderson was a good get and thought he developed some skills to get him noticed in the league. Calvin did say he was happy/grateful he went to Texas and learned new things/techniques to help his game. 
    Braun not so much, but that was probably more to do with his time at GT since they didn't pass block a lot.  In fact, Braun probably pass blocked more in the LSU game alone than he did all the previous year at GT.  Just my opinion

    Omg, it just hit me regarding the playmakers Texas can put on the field at one time with Sam: Bijan, JWhitt, Eagles, and J.Smith.  The ball skills, speed and quickness of all those guys on the field at the same time is downright nasty and should have defenses scared to death. Last time i can remember a group like this was J. Charles, Limas Sweed, Billy Pittman and R. Taylor.  If only Brewer could be like D. Thomas and of course they had VY (Sam is not at VY level in terms of athleticism, but he has other intangibles that have him in the ballpark)
    This is taking nothing away from Ingram, RoJo, Black, Moore, Washington, and Woodard. Collectively, this entire group may be better than the 2005 team on paper (not including VY in that group). Yurcich is going to have a field day with all these combinations to create mismatches.

    If they miss on Burton, there better be a legitimate reason. Else we have a problem.

    First of all, can't believe they're just now offering him.
    Second, is this anything to be worried about?

    Something else I was thinking about is the recruiting services, like 247, have Ezra ranked higher than J. Brock, but the Longhorns offered Myslinski (sp) at C before him.  Is it possible their own evaluations rank him higher on their list than Ezra?  Maybe they see something in Myslinski they didn't see in Ezra.  Just a thought.

    Are my orange colored glasses tinted too much burnt orange?  I don't get all the fire Tom stuff across the boards?  He made a mistake with some of the staff he brought over in thinking it would produce the same results as it did at Houston.  I know i wouldn't change something that worked before.  However, he saw it didn't work and made the difficult decision to part ways with coaches he was comfortable with. No matter how you slice it, that is difficult in any profession.  To his credit, he made the changes. He has had good to great classes that are just now getting ready to pay off on paper.  He has led UT to 3 straight quality bowl wins and winning seasons after taking over a program decimated by Mack's late years and the Strong era. I for one am happy in the direction of the program.  Sure, last year didn't live up to expectations, but the team was young (ish) and decimated by injuries. I know, no excuses, but it's a fact that affected the team. 
    They lost out on the Brock's, but that seems more of something out of their control than something they didn't do.  By all reports, it sounds like UT did everything right in that recruitment and it didn't work out.  They still have a top 10 class, quality players at every position on the depth chart (including a QB room we haven't seen in years), and a foundation setup for future success.  Imo, this program is far and away in a better position than it was 3 years ago when he took over.  Sorry about the rant and I'm sure I'll get slammed.

    Well, we all expected the brothers would go to Alabama. Hey, their choice and their loss.  I for one wish them no ill will, but I also will not care about how well they are or are not doing.  They are out my mind from here on out. Move on and play with kids that want to make Texas great again. I care about those kids and give my full support (and that includes Luke B.)

    Great post!  I'm tired of hearing Hand needs to go.  Cosmi and Kerstetter are 2 of the highest rated returning OL in the B12.  Not bad for a couple of 3* recruits.  That's development and a testament to Hand as a developer. This OL room is the deepest it's been in a long time.  They have one blue chip in Tyler Johnson and the rest are low 4* and 3* recruits (Angilau was slightly rated higher).  We've heard nothing but good things about C. Jones, Ghirmai and R. Moore...all were lower rated.  The proof is in what we see on the field, but if it is true then Hand needs to be applauded for developing those kids.  Lightening may strike twice (Williams and Cosmi), but not 3 to 6 times.

    Everyone keeps talking about development. I think Herb Hand is doing a good job of developing. It wasn’t good when he got here so some guys probably had to play that could have used a little more time. OLinemen usually aren’t ready to play big time college football for a couple of years. You have to recruit, develop some depth and then you will start seeing some results. Herman has recruited well at Oline. Cosmi and Kerstetter are high level offensive linemen that will play in the NFL. There’s a lot of young linemen that should have a chance in the future. The players from what I can tell absolutely love Herb Hand. It all goes back to crushing people on the field and recruiting more of the top guys. I hope we are heading in that direction. I’ve said it before and will say it again.......we were severely setback by the last 4-5 years of Mack Brown and then the bad hire of Charlie Strong. You’re are talking 7-8 years of set WAY back. I wish you could, but you can’t flip a switch and be out of that....no matter how much money you have. Let’s all hope we’re on the right track.
