2022 Recruiting Board/Thread

Back in the late 80s, when I used to get up early to buy the Dallas Morning News with a quarter - the first Thursday in February to see who we got.... Texas was the perennial brides-made for the best of the best.  We could have been a dream team if we landed half of the Jesse Armstead’s  who announced on signing day and came down to Texas or:  Miami, Florida St, Notre Dame, et al....  This feels like that.

I’ll go with the “it’s a process” theory and “it really was a good week.”  But I’ve got a foot on the proverbial ledge.  

I totally get and understand where you're coming from.  It was exactly the same thing for me (looks like we're the same time). The main thing that is waaay different, I didn't give two craps about college football recruiting in July back then...only in February.  If this was Dec-Feb,  I would have one foot on the ledge with you.  That's what I mean that this is a process.  So much can change between now and the signing day 1.

The staff felt good enough to turn Sexton away.

Wow, if that is the case then Williams burned that bridge down (or would have if I was a coach with Texas). He must have told the staff something that they believed / thought it was going to be Texas. I would never let my kid do that, because you never know when that will come back to bite you in the ass.

Good luck to him Oregon.

Hudson very good chance. Robertson very good chance to be a treehugger.

J Mac  was coaching in the late 80's?

Mac was at Illinois prior to Texas.  I believe he came to Texas in the early 90's (91 or 92 sounds right) .  In the 80's it was the Akers and McWilliams show.

Cam was not why Sexton was turned away.

Help me follow the logic if you're a UT staff member.

Why turn away your second RT target if your first RT isn't going to commit to you?

Now, you're back to the drawing board completely after months of work.

I think you do your due diligence on a plethora of targets that you will never take. 

Why assume that Sexton was the second target or that Cam was the first? I can't answer your question because I do not agree with the premise.

Of course, but you rarely bring in official visitors if they aren't a realistic target.

Hamilton from IT said it's 100% true the staff turned Sexton down because they anticipated grabbing Williams.

You seem to believe they all of sudden decided Sexton wasn't a take at all?

I would find it hard to believe that a 3-star with a weight issue was our #1 target.

Is this a good or bad thing for Texas?  SHA or Tfloss, any thoughts?

My first instinct is it's not good news, but hopefully the staff asked Banks to move up his timeline.

If I agreed with you on that, that still doesn't explain why you toss Sexton to the side.

Who's the #1 RT target then?
