2015 Recruiting Season is in full swing


Recommended Posts

Mack is a guy that Texas needs to push for all season long. Rumph and Strong need to live in Gladewater. Not only is Mack one of the best DTs to come out of the state in a couple of years, but he's a Jake Raulerson type leader of the class. I don't think it's impossible to switch him, but we are going to need Strong to have a really good first year and aggy to drop off to have a chance IMO. The fact that we do have a new coaching staff has opened the door slightly. Had we kept Mack and the previous staff we would have had zero shot.

 

Agree completely. Both must happen:us recruit him hard and Texas must have a better year on the field.

If D.Mack comes, we will get a few other nice pieces on the D side of the ball.

I think M Jefferson is the other guy that is very very important on the D side. He can get other talented guys to join also.

WR DaMarkus Lodge (Cedar Hill) on not coming for Jr Day --

 

“It’s not anything to worry about. I still like Texas a lot. Honestly I think I would rather go by myself instead of to their junior day. I’d rather catch them another time where it’s not crowded with too many people. That would give me more time with the staff and would allow me to not be rushed when meeting them.”

Attendee QB Josh White (6'5, 220) from GA (2016):

 

"I love Texas. I grew up loving Texas. I was a big Vince Young fan," White said. "I feel really comfortable there with all the coaches. I'm looking forward to meeting them, but the main thing is meeting coach Strong. Ever since he was at Louisville, what he did with Teddy Bridgewater, I could see myself in that role. That's going to be a highlight for me. I've heard he's a great guy, a great coach."

 

* * *

 

"I've talked to coach Koenning. He said he doesn't have a lot to do with offering. I haven't even played a snap for varsity yet. Mississippi State did take a chance on me so they're my number one," White said. "If Texas took a chance on me, that would be the biggest thing in my recruitment."

 

* * *

 

"I'm so excited for this trip, I can't even explain. Just to be able to have opportunity to go to Texas is a blessing. I have a lot of family in Houston, so they might be able to come see me," White said. "If I ever go there, my grandmother could come see me play, so that would be huge for me. My mom's whole side of the family lives in Houston. And meeting coach Strong, as a man, that's a great accomplishment in my eyes. That will be a big moment in my recruitment."

Bama offered 5 RBs just this week.

 

Stevenson appears undeterred (247) -- .

 

"Nick Saban said that he really wanted to talk to me. He's been interested in me and said that I'm a 5-star running back. Coach Saban said it's a blessing to really get to know a person like me and the opportunity and chance to get to recruit a guy with my skills. He said I'm one of the top running backs in the country," detailed Stevenson.

 

"He said if I went there, I'd have the opportunity to enhance my skills at the next level. He said that I remind him of Kenyan Drake and Mark Ingram."

 

"I was at a loss for words. They said I can visit on March 1, for a spring practice, or in June. I'll most likely go to all three. Alabama is a great opportunity. It's a blessing and God has his ways."

 

"It's still great with them. I'm still trying to get a feel and understanding for Coach Strong and the new staff."

 

"I have six offers and am getting interest from Ohio State and Oregon. My top four is Texas, Oregon, Ohio State, and Alabama."

Saban up to his tricks again. He throws offers out like candy to get these kids to visit and further evaluate them. Few end up being committable, most hold off going anywhere until the season starts and Nick stops returning their calls.
