All due respect to IT, but we've had the Graham commitment really well and have been saying not to worry for the last few weeks. In fact, I was told today by our fantastic source on the matter he's d

I don't think recognizing it as an asshole tweet is attacking the kid. For the kid, this is part of growing up. He'll make stupid decisions like this because he's young. They all do. But the longer th

I'm not going to be critical of Herman's class. Charlie's recruiting tactics played against Herman so when he hit the ground in Austin, he had some serious ground to make up. With the big names, it wa

flashback time

 

 

2013 grade: A-

2017 grade: D    

 

Top signees: QB Tyrone Swoopes, OT Kent Perkins, TE Geoff Swaim, DE Naashon Hughes, WR Jacorey Warrick

 

Texas only took 15 signees in the final class that Mack Brown signed. Eight ended up leaving the program. So that's not good. Swoopes, Perkins and Hughes at least played a lot of games, and Swaim is still in the NFL. The toughest loss was probably Darius James, a top-25 ranked recruit who transferred and became Auburn's starting left tackle this season. Bad classes like these help get coaches fired.

Except Hughes was a walk-on. He eventually got a schollie, but he didn't start out that way.

Are you sure? I thought that he was going to be a grey shirt, but due to the small class he got a regular schollie. I could be wrong, but that's how I remember it.

He was committed to LSU and agreed to come to UT as a grey shirt I believe to join his brother on the team. Schollies left over and he was given one right before NSD.

Until Inside Texas says different on Graham I will not be worried.

All due respect to IT, but we've had the Graham commitment really well and have been saying not to worry for the last few weeks. In fact, I was told today by our fantastic source on the matter he's debating canceling his OU visit.
