Ok ladies and gents . . . . just got off the phone with a friend I've been waiting to hear from.     Daylon Mack will be a Horn. The conversation was more interesting than that but sharing it would

Ok, had another phone call come in. This time, it's the KM situation at hand.   I was given a lengthy backstory, an eye-opening version that is so controversial that I am deciding not to repeat it u

Alright. I've been holding my tongue.    I occasionally go and check your post history, as there doesn't seem to be much in the way of parity. I'm not saying that you should be a sunshine pumper but

That's not very surprising. If he doesn't visit Strong on Thursday during the Texas relays, just break ties. We aren't going to get him, and there are plenty of other RBs.

 

 

 

Supposedly, we sent him correspondence addressed to "Roland Jones."

And he did not like that too much.

Ronald Jones put out a top 6 and we were not among them.

 

"And don't call me Shirley"

 

From Shaggy: Ronald Jones put out his top 6 and we aren't in it. Supposedly we sent him a letter addressed to "Roland Jones" and he wasn't too happy about it.

Starting to get frustrated with the front 7 talent in the state for 2015. Nobody seems to be emerging and I still feel like LB is the #1 priority for A&M. .....

 

 

Sometimes I worry that you are confused about just where you are.

Do you often end up in the grocery store and forget what you came for, or even how you got there?

Apparently we offered 2015 QB Zach Gentry (6'6, 230) of Albuquerque, NM (Eldorado)

 

247's #9 composite pro style http://247sports.com/Player/Zach-Gentry-30305

 

 

 

Here is a quote with reaction from Gentry to the offer ....

 

"It's awesome. Texas is big time, lots of fan support," Gentry said. "They have great facilities, it's a great university with lots of tradition and history. It's a great program overall."

 

"My strength overall is my arm strength and my accuracy. Being the size I am, 6-6, 230, people think I'm not as quick or fast as a quarterback should be," Gentry said. "I timed in the mid 4.6 range last summer, so I'm a little faster than people think I am. Another thing people question is the strength of schedule in New Mexico. But I would say my strengths are my arm strength, accuracy and mobility."

 

"I think they're a great hire. Texas, I think they know what they're doing. He (Charlie Strong) was extremely successful at Louisville, and coach Strong built a really strong program there," Gentry said. "I was able to experience it first-hand last summer (at Louisville's camp). I have had a pretty good relationship with staff since last summer. I think it was a good hire."

I was thinking Rick MvIvor

 

 

edit - i did find a 40-time for him of 4.68

If accurate, then the McIvor analogy is out. McIvor was 5+

 

Watched LHN replays of McIvor in action, that dude had an impressive arm in my opinion. Never saw him live, a few years prior to me hitting the 40 acres and really gearing up with Longhorn football.

This game was a killer http://stats.texassports.com/sports/m-footbl/archive/stats/83/ut-uga.htm

10-9 Georgia

 

Going in, we were undefeated, ranked #2. Big Red was #1 but lost to Miami 31-30 that same night.

 

Should have been Freddy's MNC. We had a defense for the ages (7 defensive players were consensus All-SWC, 3 were consensus All-Americans (DeGrate, Leiding, Gray). And check this out -- 11 senior defenders were drafted off that defense in the 1984 draft, including 3 who did not even start. In the 1983-85 NFL drafts, we had 23 players taken).

 

But McIvor was 8 of 26 for 168 yds, 0 TDs, 2 ints

 

Jeff Ward hit 3 field goals but missed two more (40 and 43 yards)

 

Yet this game will always be remembered for Craig Curry's muffed punt in the 4Q.

 

 

Here is the muff and following TD for the Georgia win

Interesting conversation on Twitter between Charles Omenihu, a current Longhorn commit and James Lockhart. Both have been going off about playing together. Lockhart also said he was down to visit Texas, if he gets invited. Omenihu, I love this guy. Already has become friends with Jeffery Holland a 5 star linebacker out of Florida (has exchanged numbers with him and is actively pushing him to Texas).

Maybe we're bringing in Omenihu to recruit? :P

 

I say that in jest because his highlight film isn't that impressive. Charles plays with decent leverage and a high motor, but he doesn't have elite first-step quickness for a DE. I can see him growing into a strong-side DE or DT, but I doubt he'll ever play "Buck" ala Jeffcoat.

 

Just my opinion.

I think Strong likes his awareness, if you watch his highlights, he has great vision, coach Strong will coach this guy up, Mack would never recruit this guy bc his staff was never great at developing players. #Hookem

Agree that Omenihu has potential and a good frame. I can see him as a 260 lb + strongside DE or DT. You're right, Strong will coach him up.
