Mookie Cooper to Ohio State. 

Wow.  I believe that's their fourth top-100 WR, and Mookie may be the lowest rated of the bunch.  If Mookie is going to be their slot, can we have local boy Smith-Njigba?

What the hell are they selling in Columbus?  You figure they would take a little dip when Meyer stepped down.  Nope, they're kicking ass in recruiting.

With out without Meyer Ohio State is one of the premier programs in the country. They win and they churn out draft picks. Player development is a huge thing Texas is having to overcome right now.

July 16th decision for Lathan Ransom and potentially an early August decision for Bijan Robinson. Neither currently have positive trend lines for Texas. 

I hear you on OSU.

Question for you Daniel, what the hell does Texas do now at RB?  They made Bijan a priority and will not get him.  RB is one position they need since the likelihood of Derrian Brown playing is slim.  I know they look pretty decent for 2021 guys and maybe they can get by with Ingram, Whittington and Young next year, but the lack of depth will hurt.

I'm not Daniel, but I don't think you throw in the towel with Robinson. We were his leader before he even visited here. IMO, there has to be some outside factors pulling him away. That may dissipate over the next month or so.

And I would not discount Brown playing full time beginning in 2020. Kid is a fighter.

I'm pulling for Brown and hope he completely gets back to the way he was.  He did go through something life changing.

Regarding Robinson, you continue to recruit him until the ink is dry; however, there is something pulling him and it may be hard to overcome.  With that said, UT needs to have a contingency plan and I'm just not sure what it is.  Evans is a possibility (a slim possibility); Jace has shown interest but is committed elsewhere; Ty Jordan is possible but he seems enamored with USC.  What else is out there that will make a difference the Horns should be going after?

Will be interesting to see what tOSU does on the field without Meyer. What we need to remember is little OSU seems to churn out backs year over year. If they can do it with 3* talent we sure the hell out to be able to.
