Meyer wont be available next year plus that sets the program back another year.  Get him now, whatever it takes.  Tired of watching a decade long worth of pathetic football.

Why is Meyer not available next year? Not that I want him, just curious.

At this point, why not hire Lincoln Riley as the next OC? Just pay him more than OU does. lol

I think the thinking had been that he was going to USC after Helton gets canned after the season. Now that Helton seems to have (at least temporarily) righted the ship, I don't know if that fear is as well-founded.

PROSPECTS THAT SHINED IN 2019

 

QUARTERBACK: Hudson Card

 

Texas is a breeding ground for top quarterbacks who plays college ball all over the country, but our spotlight is on the senior who had another fantastic fall. Card is the clear-cut QB1 among 2020 signal-callers in the state.

He’s poised in the pocket and confidently operates the Lake Travis offense. Card is also incredibly mobile, whether it’s extending plays and making throws downfield or breaking runs loose. He has a fantastic pocket presence, powerful arm and is deadly accurate. It’s also worth noting how well he does in different game situations, which will go a long way when he gets to Texas.

BIJAN ROBINSON DISCUSSES FUTURE AT TEXAS AS PREP CAREER CLOSES

CHANDLER, Ariz. — As one door closes, another one opens.

Five-star running back Bijan Robinson played his final game for Salpointe Catholic High School on Friday night, a 24-16 loss in the semifinals of Arizona’s highest division. Door closed.

But Robinson’s playing days as a Longhorn have just begun. Door open.

“It’s a blessing to have that,” Robinson said of his future in Austin.

“It’s been great being with (my high school) team. They’ve helped me get to Texas and get this far. It’s a blessing to be going to the college level and playing up there.”

But how — and why — exactly did Robinson choose Texas?

After all, he is ranked as the No. 22 overall prospect in ESPN’s top 300 for the class of 2020. The 6-foot, 200-pound running back had offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, Oklahoma and Texas A&M, to name a few.

But that’s when Stan Drayton — UT’s associate head coach, running backs coach and run game coordinator — won over the young prospect in recruiting, as Robinson committed to Texas in early August.

“What coach Drayton has done in these past years — he’s a big reason why I chose Texas,” Robinson said.

“How he is as a man and how he loves the Lord and serves God with everything — that’s what drove me over to Texas. That’s what I think for other kids; find the right fit for your coaching staff and then for yourself.”

Robinson is also regarded by some in Arizona as perhaps the greatest running back prospect to ever come out of the state. The five-star recruit is Arizona’s all-time leader in career rushing yards with 7,036.

He totaled 8,440 all-purpose yards over his high school career, 7,673 of which came over the past three years. The running back surpassed the 2,000-yard rushing mark in each of those three seasons, the last of which included nearly 400 receiving yards. As a senior, he averaged more than 250 all-purpose yards per game.

“They do a lot of things with the running back position,” Robinson said of the Longhorns’ offensive scheme. “They can put (running backs) out at slot or even run in the trenches, go outside. They do a lot of things that I’ve been here for the last four years, so I’ll have that over there.”

Robinson is not content with just making it “over there,” either. He wants to take full advantage of his opportunity to play at the college level, and not just on the football field.

“I want to progress as a man and as a player, then everything will take care of itself,” Robinson said of what he wants to accomplish in Austin.

“I know Texas is in the struggle right now, but I just have to keep working hard for myself, and then when I get up there, put in as much work as I did here.”

Unfortunately for Texas fans, they will have to wait until after spring ball to see Robinson hit the practice field for the first time. The future Longhorn will not be able to make the move to Austin until the summer due to his high school’s policy that does not allow for early graduation.

But that didn’t stop Robinson from sending a message to the Longhorns faithful.

“I’m a great person — I know football speaks for itself — I can do a lot of things on the football field,” he said.

“But off the field — how I handle myself and how I’m a loving person for everybody — that’s what they should know about me.
