Gerald Wilbon and D'Andre Christmas are grad transferring

Recommended Posts

Obviously no surprise. Wilbon was a fucking hard worker with athletic limitations. I'm not sure Christmas liked football all that much.

I remember Christmas having one of the best first steps I ever seen out of a HS Interior D Lineman on tape. He became Muslim in Faith & became a music producer in Austin. Interesting college experience.

He also had one of the most memorable announcements I can recall, where he committed on a New Orleans evening news broadcast, where his very awkward commitment was sandwiched between reports of various shootings and stabbings.

Okafor, Imade, and Brown are the only ones left from the 2016 class/Strong recruits.

TEXAS STRONK!

Can't wait to see this team next year man. I feel like playing all these young guys has to fucking pay off at some point. OL and DL should be solid, if we win the trenches, we win the poop12.

2 great grad transfer spots, hope the best for em!

I have to believe that’s still the largest audience that stations stream has ever seen.

I disagree on DL.  We're hurting on the two deep there.  Need bodies.

This. I thought he was going to be nails as a pass rusher.

 

Anyway, even though neither had much of an impact on the program, there are many worse things in life than getting a free bachelor's from Texas followed by free grad school. Congrats to both young men on their degrees and best of luck at their next stops.

Wilbon played quite a bit and even started a game, that's pretty good for the least heralded dude in that "errbody" DL class.

This is all just totally exemplary of the depths to which our program has stalled out and crashed. 

Two guys graduate that had almost no impact on the program except for sucking up scholarships. One played some meh snaps and the other was a flaccid reminder of the shitty Strong era every time his name came up.

So we’re simultaneously happy for these guys and glad to see them heading out to become someone else’s dead weight. Meanwhile, literally all of the heralded guys that came in with them have long departed in either failure, banality, or in one instance, apparently major success. We can’t even win for losing. And the beat goes on. 

Farts in the wind have a more significant impact on CFB than these two guys disappearing into the wastelands.

Collins and Umanmielen will help.

QB - 3 + Jackson

RB - 6 (Includes Whittington and Johnson)

WR - 9 (Includes Boyce and Woodard)

TE/FB - 6 (Including Epps and Hullaby)

OL - 15

DL - 14

LB - 12 (Includes Overshown)

DB - 15

ST - 3

Total = 84, only 10 SR. So there is going to be a lot of attrition to take 22-25 in the 2021 class.

I’ll always respect and appreciate Gerald Wilbon for what he said when he committed. He talked about understanding the value of a Texas degree and the importance of getting it and basically improving his lot in life. It was a good understanding for an 18 year old from the hood, and I’m glad to see he followed through by doing his academic work. I hope he has great success next season and in life.

Christmas seemed much more interested in “finding himself” than football. Good for him, I guess. Glad he graduated, at least. Came across as a smart guy, just different.

Not sure where all your numbers come from, but probably 3-5 more 2020 Class additions too...

It includes Collins and Umanmielen. If they also get Dixon and Williams at WR and Rakestraw at CB then Texas needs 2 more attrition to get to 85. Most likely Cummins is one.

Agreed but those 2 were never going to contribute meaningfully. Would much rather get some young blood. All Strong players need to go.

Would love to see the numbers on how all of Strong’s recruits fared. Off the top of my head 9 of his recruits turned into draft picks (assuming CJ & Duv get picked), maybe 10 with Sam. Seems like literally all his other recruits were total busts.

Sam will be drafted. Sam was recruited by Charlie but could have been recruited by Charlie Manson. He is Herman’s player. 

And all of Charlie’s guys that were drafted are busts.

Edit: Dickson but punters don’t count.

So your numbers are contingent on a guy who decommitted and another who probably would have committed months ago if we hadn't given him every reason to be concerned his talent would be wasted in this program?

“Bust” seems premature for Connor Williams right now. He could end up being a league average starter, which is probably about what you expect from a 2nd rounder. Omenihu has shown some promise as well.
Still, looking back at our NFL draft history for the last 10 or so years is.... not good.

True. Connor is not good though. Don’t really follow the Texans.

Disagree. We've finally reached a point where most of the OL and DL are RS. We have numbers and incoming talent at DL. We are deeper and more talented on the OL/DL than we have been since FUPM quit on the job and left us wandering the desert. The change in scheme/defensive style will make 3 or 4 of these names jump off the screen when you see them in 2020.

right now we have  ::

Coburn. Sweat. Ojomo. Ossai. Vaughns. Warren. Carson. Graham. Bimage. Jones. Mpagi. 

Adding ::

Broughton. Dorbah. Goram-Welch. likely Collins and possibly Princely.  I also expect there will be a long look at one of the Stanford DL grad xfers, but we will see.

Given Mpagi's been in and out of the hospital, I'd put him almost at Derrion Brown's level until we hear about him consistently practicing.

Kansas has a CC with graduate programs?  Sounds like the anti-Blinn.

It’s pretty great, actually. Sorry for hurting your feelings because I think two guys who have been dead weight leaving is a good thing and an example in its own way, given the class in which they came in and that context, of our terrible journey. Have fun cheering for them while they ride pine at their new destinations. Maybe you can show up and gleefully regale us each with week with updates. I can see it now:

”At San Diego State this week against Wyoming, Christmas-Giles played 11 snaps and almost made a diving tackle once as the Wyoming QB scrambled past him. 

In Gerald Wilbon news, he made one tackle for a loss and did a bellyrub dance in the backfield for Louisiana against Troy State. It was awesome to see you guys!”

Can’t wait.

What a fucking goober. They walked at Senior Day for shit's sake.

"Combine both Texas football DT’s Gerald Wilbon and D’Andre Christmas-Giles putting their names in the portal on the same day and the loss in depth is huge.

What was double-dose of bad news for the Texas football program along the defensive line on Jan. 21, head coach Tom Herman figured out that he would be losing two key experienced seniors to the NCAA Transfer Portal. Both senior defensive tackles Gerald Wilbon and D’Andre Christmas-Giles had their intentions surface to put their names in the transfer portal on the same day."

It’s ok, several of us signaled our intentions to put our Johnson’s into the portal known as South Austin’s mom. We needed the cover story!

A Muslim named Christmas?  Should make for interesting times at the masjid.
