    Will Baizer got a reaction from HOOKEM85 in It Begins.... (2017 Fall Camp Thread)   
    I'm going to get the entire press conference up in a bit, but important notes:

    On his first practice: "Nobody impressed. Nobody disappointed in shorts."

    Due to new NCAA rules there are no two-a-days. Tom Herman didn't exactly seem to be a fan of the way it was implemented stating a problem with guys showing up July 31st, stating, "29 practices is 29 practices, but the kids reporting in July is a bit much." States he doesn't blame NCAA, but is looking for the NCAA to talk to coaches to clean up the process.

    Earlier in the Spring, Herman stated that Shane Buechele needed to be more vocal and show more leadership. When asked today what he's seen so far out of his Shane, Tom Herman simply said, "That he has a voice." He went on to say that he believes leaders on the team like Connor Williams, Malik Jefferson, and PJ Locke already are vocal. Is encouraged by Shane. Also states Jerrod Heard is a locker room favorite and has encouraged him to start to be a more vocal leader.

    For anyone who follows the program closely, they should know Tom Herman isn't a huge fan of no-pads practice when it comes to evaluating players... or in general. Says he is using the few days of no pads practices to instill a culture and drill in the new offense and defense. Although he also lamented that they'll have to re-teach it in pads.

    According to Tom there was a lot of improvement of the team over the summer like increased verticals by 1.5" and 70lbs added to their average squat. There were more specific numbers, and I'll get them up here ASAP. He also reported the team collectively lost 500 pounds of body fat, and added 380 pounds of muscle mass.

    When asked about his thoughts on the new found depth at the TE position with the new freshmen and Kellen Moore, Tom Herman said, "Theyre bodies... Scholarship worthy bodies." Seems he is still waiting until pads before he begins to even feel remotely good about that position.

    Herman also reported that Chris Warren is sitting at 254lbs and he wants him at 250 by Maryland.

    Also states Reggie Hemphill-Mapps is in store for a break out year.
     
    Tom Herman is not very confident if Damion Miller will make it into the class. Says Jamari Chisholm will be on the team soon.
    More coming soon!

    Will Baizer got a reaction from hornag in Top Texas Target Tommy Bush On His UOV to Texas   
    Mid-afternoon on Tuesday, Tommy Bush, a 6'4.5" 191-pound with a sub 4.5-forty, announced through twitter that he decided to take a trip up the road from Schertz, TX to visit Tom Herman.
     

     
    I got the chance to catch up with Tommy about his trip to Austin.
     
    "It was great. We had a tour of the new locker room and other areas that have been updated. [My family and I] had a 20 minute meeting with Coach Herman just talking family. Afterwards my family and I sat down with Coach Mehringer for a few hours talking about family, football, and education... I'm just enjoying getting to know the staff. I really enjoyed my time there as we were really getting to know each other."
     
    After Texas took time extending an offer, Tommy and his family seem to be coming to terms with the late offer. Tom Herman is doing well selling the program to Tommy as well, putting Texas in a good position. Right now Texas' main competition in this race is the boys in Waco, but Texas has taken a huge step in this recruitment and is heading in the right direction.

    Braedon Mowry is a DE at Katy Taylor playing along side 2018 stud DL Max Wright. He's a monster on the line and his film is very impressive.
    I talked with Braedon Mowry about his trip down to Austin to visit the campus of UT.
     
    How was the trip?
    The trip was amazing! We toured the dorms got to see most of the facility tried on the all whites ( looked amazing ) looked at the campus and we talked about majors.
     
    What was your favorite?
    I like how everything is at your fingertips, the dorms are right across the street from everything you need, I also like how coach Giles and Naivar are straight forward
     
    Which coaches were there when yall went?
    Giles, Naivar, Brian Carrington. Great people to work with.
     
    What do you think of Naivar?
    His personality as a coach and person are so different. He's someone who won't settle for average. That's great coaching to me.
     
    Sounds like you really liked Texas man.
    Of course. They are very high on my list

    It has been reported by our friends over at InsideTexas that Buechele has weighed in at 205lbs and it's all in his legs.
     

    Hopefully this means we don't get a Jonathon Gray playing over D'Onta Foreman situation again.
