Ok, just got off the phone with one of my friends. I'll put them in brief bullet points.
â€“ Described the current class as "decent." And thats including those he thinks will finish out the class. Said its a very good class with a couple of players the staff feels are very underrated (Daniel Young, and the LB we got). He said it was hard to call Toneil Carter underrated when he's a 4-star, but he said he's underrated. Power and speed we haven't seen in a while.
â€“ Thinks Gary Johnson will cancel SC visit and commit to Texas.
â€“ Chaisson is all Texas and was recruiting before his visit to LSU. Chaisson to Texas.
â€“ Not nearly as confident with the Calloway recruitment. But thinks the kid is a steal if we can get him.
â€“ Staff is not pressed at DT, but likes the one they're recruiting right now a bunch. If not him, then may pass and look to next year. Last year's DT class makes this possible.
â€“ Repeated something he's said before to me. We'll have a top 3 class next year.
â€“ Said to expect an OOS TB to be in the class next year. Said there will be as many as six OOS members of that class, most of whom will be Drayton's recruits. He said the lowest ranked of those OOS'ers will be a 4-star. Says we'll take back the state, but cherry pick the OOS'ers and do that moreso than Mack or Charlie ever did.
â€“ Just gushed over the recruiting prowess of this staff. Said if Texas could have had 9 or 10 wins this year, we'd still be in it for Browning and the others we've whiffed on to date. Perhaps already have them. Said we'll see 9-10 wins this year and it will propel the recruiting even moreso. He was really stoked about this, the future.
â€“ Concerned about the QB position. Said we'll get by, but if Kyle Allen had transferred, he'd start. He said you can't say that and feel good about it.
