    Jacoby Jones is in the boat, folks. Felt good about this one, but wasn’t expecting an announcement so quick. Profile coming later this evening. Lots of versatility to Jones’ game that makes him a great fit for what Texas does upfront defensively.

    Cain latest film shows real improvement to me. More wiggle, quickness, decisiveness. My worry for him was that he'd hit his IMG ceiling but it doesn't look like that's true at all. Would be cool if he developes more than Sanders - unless we get Sanders

    I don’t live in Huntsville, but I am very involved with the high school. I have worked on an academic level Tee. I really respect him as a person. 
    The day he committed, he brought Corby Meekins by to see me, and told me about his commitment. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to steal his moment. 
    He is everything you could want in an athlete, a real team player and leader. 
    Hook ‘em!

    The rankings aren't as important as the evaluations, but they are an indicator of the relative strength of the class versus other schools. It's difficult to compete at a top level if you aren't consistently getting classes that are ranked in the top 10 (maybe 15). So in that sense, the ranking in aggregate gives a snapshot of the health of recruiting overall. 
    From an individual player perspective, I've always looked more at the other schools who took an interest than the player rank. If all of the top schools evaluated a player and wanted him also, then that player has been vetted pretty thoroughly.

    Spoke to my buddy in Austin. 
    – Sam's fine. Was a little stiff Sunday but was fine today.
    – Coaches are concerned game will be taken too lightly, so they're pushing on the gas a little this week. KU isn't a bad team.
    – Jones and Hookfin are going to be Horns. He did not say which was about to pop. Couldn't get him to understand my sentence, the bar was loud. lol
    – He would not elaborate, but said staff's confidence in the Bru McCoy recruitment has increased this week. They don't see a big name out there who will make a move this early so they don't think the situation will have time to resolve itself. Staff calls or texts him almost daily.
    – I asked about DT recruiting. They're still exploring the JUCO ranks. Don't see a lot to choose from otherwise. If that doesn't work, they'll look at a GT but honestly, they aren't so worried. They talk about Sweat like he's the next big thing in the middle.
    – He spent some time talking about the Herman-CDC relationship. Said it could not be better. CDC is doing things that Herman loves. The Journey thing was just a small touch and just the beginning. CDC is looking to max the "fun" in the game experience. I'm really liking CDC.
    – Things still look good with Noah Cain. Sanders continues to show us the love, but we don't have a real good read on him right now.

    He can say all the right things, but until he signs it doesn’t really matter. You take the commitment and hope LSU fills up.

    Not really. The LSU threat is just something we'll have to live with until its over, or when they get Sopsher, whichever comes first.

    Re: Bru
    Get back into your mind at 17/18 years old. Yeah, integrity, academics of course, yada yada, meet that basic threshold, then really don't you (shouldn't you) want to make sure that you have fun in college? 
    USC football is not fun right now. Texas is fun. Kid ain't no fool, seems to me.

    We've been giving opponents early leads and late chances all year and somehow coming out with wins. You can't sustain that. But the lesson was never learned. Hopefully we'll learn it now.

    Also seems like a great opportunity to give next year's corners some butterfly-stomach / starting-on-the-road live action without too much risk. Knock on wood.

    He doesn't look too shabby as a QB to me, electric runner who can make some crazy throws (see those quick shots on the run and across the body). That's Herman's bread and butter, no?
    Though a really big badass DB is pretty cool.

    IMHO
    I haven't noticed that any site can really lay claim to getting it right more than any other site. And that's because they rarely make definitive statements. They know how to say everything so no matter what happens they can claim they were right. Been reading all these sites for years now and it was that way then and it's still that way. 
    Hell, if you read and pay attention to what Daniel says on here, he's probably on target as much or more than anyone. He's just not constantly throwing stuff out to see if it will stick on the wall. If he throws something out there you can almost guarantee that it will stick.

    Not questioning you or your sources but I find it curious that this would be made known. 
    If I was a head coach, once a decision is made to offer a kid, it damn sure better not ever leave the room that we weren't in full agreement. That would be a major problem with me.

    When we go 11-1 we will then land everyone. What I am encouraged about the most is that we have a lot of talent returning next season and redshirting. 
    We have to keep developing  our trenchmen, it is the identity and future of our program.
    This seasons results is due to a decent OL.

    Wasn't there so couldn't watch Boyd but since they never threw much near him nor showed him on TV he must have been playing well. Considering all the chatter about him last week, good for him.
