2015 Recruiting Thread

Recommended Posts

It's like Wescott is answering his own question. Texas slow played him because they have other priorities. 

 

 

Does he dislike Texas? He is so quick to pile on when a recruit with a Texas offer goes somewhere else. But when something good happens he says nothing. Seems to me that he likes to troll the Texas fan base while covering us. Seems weird to me

Ive been following him on Twitter for a couple years. I think he means well but just a lil soft..lol

Keep an eye on Denzel Okafor. He really liked what he saw on Saturday. I think if we come out and do it again a couple times, he could commit to Texas. That's really the only concern he's had and has otherwise wanted to play at Texas.

 

TCU has been the leader, but the hype fades over time. I hear that he will either be a Texas verbal in a month (if Texas continues to develop) or he'll open everything back up again.

 

I'm trying to get in contact with him, going to interview him and post it here.

I feel like if we continue to play with the fire and passion that we showed on Saturday we will be in good shape toward the end of NSD. As a fan that makes 3 or so ballgames a year due to living 5hrs away from DKR... I haven't seen the fans and players connect like that since the 09 team. It was so great to see on Saturday from the stands. If we win we will get the guys that we want & need for this program going forward!

If Jordan Elliott isn't already committed to the Horns I would be shocked. 

 

last i checked, he isn't on the commit list.  i get what you're saying.  if one wants to play for the Horns then pull the trigger and make it public.  stop "lampkining" around.

Dickson...Wouldn't be surprised if his commit isn't solid. Navasota area has always been Aggy country...I was surprised when he committed to us.......Plus with him being a great WR and the offense Aggy has, along with Baylor and TCU in the state; its gonna be tough recruiting WRs to put on the Burnt orange if we aren't in the hunt for titles. Baylor throws the ball about 70 times a game. Who wouldn't want to play WR there ? Its a no-brainer...We are going to have to rely on some Shipley types. My puzzlement is why a great RB wouldn't want to play for Texas if we can get some beef to block for them. Bama gets 5* RBs all the time, even when they have two or three on their roster. We should be able to do the same.

With that said...We need Dickson. He is a stud.

FYI, Dickson de-committed from Baylor to come to us. We weren't in the hunt for a title when that happened.

I never said we would never sign a good WR.  I said it will be tough to get them if we aren't in the hunt for titles since we are not a predominately passing team like the TCUs, Baylor's, and Aggy type teams who throw 70 times a game......If you are an 18 yr old WR ( not wearing orange colored glasses ), what type of offense would you want to play for ? Aggy, TCU, Baylor, or Texas ? Maybe  knowing you have a great chance for a title could sway you to play for a team that doesn't throw throw throw.....Otherwise what ya gonna do wanting t get to the NFL ?
