I’m having a hard time with everyone here not making shepherds “recruitment wide open” tweet a a Big deal..

 

Seems nobody knows what to think of it except that's it's not serious, just a young kid goofing around and/or wanting to make sure the attention doesn't go away. Certainly doesn't bode well for the mental make up either way.

He was already a guy who has had a screwy recruitment as we’ve said previously. This just confirmed what we already knew. Recruit him until he signs.

Well EJ and Roach just recently put in picks to Texas.  Let's see what happens.  @Sirhornsalot what are you hearing?  @MBHORNSFAN ?

There’s some good vibes with this one. Texas is planting a flag in a major way out West this cycle and this could be the next step in doing just that.

It’s not on his Twitter, did he delete the tweet?

There may be a few hiccups going forward in the Shepherd recruitment but I think he sticks.  He isn't going OOS and there have been numerous situations with the aggy staff already from lack of communication (mentioned several times) to them saying he's not allowed to visit. 

We've gotten the 2 best Left Tackles in-state the last 2 years now with Moore and now Shepherd IMO.

And damn you Stanford.  This would have been an elite OL haul with Bragg.

Please let this happen for the Horns.  That would be an excellent Bday surprise for me.

Happy Birthday, texbound, regardless!  One of these days they'll be goals, not milestones.  Lol

Much respect for any pick Roach makes so I'm inclined to believe the hype. Eminent? I'm not sure.

I'll make some calls tomorrow.

I texted, because its late. lol

Me: Whats the latest? Anything I need to be smiling about?

Him: Just having a late night Tufuno cocktail. You can smile about that.

Me: Is it eminent?

Him: He's pretty fired up about Texas. It could happen at any time.

Me: Is this due to Langi's "strong Polynesian ties?" And why do I never see Langi in a tie, much less a Polynesian tie?

Him: Go to bed.

    • 6-5 210 and 4.5 speed, can dominate at blocking. Sounds good to me.
    • RES SCHEDULE STANDINGS RANKINGS         LOG IN           Friday Five: Five teams not named Alabama or Clemson who have a realistic shot to win the national title If the Crimson Tide or the Tigers don't win the College Football Playoff, here's five teams who could by Tom Fornelli  @TomFornelli 3 hrs ago • 5 min   Over the summer, I wrote about the 16 teams that can realistically win a national title. The premise of the post that while every team technically starts the season with the same chance, the reality is much different. Now, only a few weeks into the season, that list of 16 has been culled a bit. It hasn't stopped anybody from asking me a familiar question, though. Whether on radio, podcasts or social media, I've been asked multiple times some variation of "which team is most likely to win the national title if it isn't Alabama or Clemson?" Well, for this week's Friday Five, I'm going to answer the question, though I doubt it will stop anybody from asking me. There's still a very long way to go in the season, but based on what we've all seen so far, these are the five teams I would give the best odds to right now. 5. Texas: Sometimes I wish I called this feature Friday Four instead of Friday Five because it's not always easy coming up with a fifth entry for the list. This was one of those times. I was going back-and-forth between Texas and all the honorable mentions listed below and ultimately decided on Texas for a couple of reasons. First of all, Texas is a talented team, and you need talent to win national titles. In 247Sports's team talent rankings, the Longhorns rank 7th in the country, ahead of the honorable mentions. More than that, however, Texas has an "easier" path to the College Football Playoff. There's only one obstacle in its way in the Big 12, and it's named Oklahoma. Now, it won't be easy to beat Oklahoma twice in the same season, but it's not impossible. Meanwhile, Auburn might be the third or fourth-best team in its own division. Michigan hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2011. Penn State has to get through Ohio State as well. Notre Dame can get to the playoff, but it has to be perfect to do so, and that's very hard to do. Then there's Oregon, which might be the best team in the Pac-12, but being the best team in the Pac-12 doesn't seem to mean much to those who decide which teams get in. So Texas gets this fifth spot in a bit of a tie-breaker. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/friday-five-five-teams-not-named-alabama-or-clemson-who-have-a-realistic-shot-to-win-the-national-title/
    • Getting a four star WR recruit is the cake. Taking him away from the aggies is the icing. 
    • I'm sure aggy is saying right now "He isn't $ec good enough, don't want"
    • So Give me a low down? How good is this kid etc? Follow Texas recruiting via boards and never heard his name till now lol. Nice!
