I work closely with a certain previously committed 5 star QB's father (hint: its Quinn Ewers, for those who haven't been following recruiting closely like I have) and chatted with him a bit this after

I find all of the angst about Murphy to be laughable. After Ewers, he's the guy I've been cheering for Texas to land for 3 weeks. Texas has a healthy QB room right now and that isn't going to change.

What I'd really like is for a way to get Roach to attend the Surly Sprint Off and Fair on Sept. 4th, specifically so that weeble-wobble of a man can take part in a hula-hooping contest. I don't care if his competition is Air as long as I'm there to witness it and have it entered into surly record. We can wager on how long he can spin for collapsing into a wheezing heap and grabbing his chest. 

@closetojumping think you can text your supper buddy and ask him if he'd be interested in attending and competing? Tell him there's cake.

I thought it was Ketchum who was buddies with ctj. Actually, it is kind of cool - Ketch and Roach eat buns and ctj wears one.

Does Ketch even show up to the games anymore in person? He made it seem like a lot of his own subscribers don't like him..  I know OB has tailgate gatherings, wonder if he shows up for them.

Is DKR even mobility scooter friendly?

247 is coming out with a rankings update today, so there should be plenty of fodder for entertainment.

That TFB update on Allen restates what we already know (Texas leads by a fair margin). Allen said that Texas is the only school that keeps in constant communication with him. CJ expects an announcement in the first week of March.

Spoiler

Alright, I know y’all are eager to read this following the Trending post from last night. So let’s jump in right away with why I feel confident about where Texas is standing in BJ Allen’s recruitment.

On the drive over to Aledo, I was prepared to ask about Texas, Oklahoma, and Texas A&M. Though when I asked Allen who he was in communication with he gave one answer:     Texas.

“I’m on Texas right now, that’s about it” Allen said, who added that Texas was the only school was still in constant communication with.

Both Blake Gideon and Steve Sarkisian are active in this recruitment, and from what Allen had to say, it sounds like the two are making massive strides to land one of the state’s best safeties.

“Both of the coaches I talk to are great people, and they are down to earth. ” Allen said. “They are going to be honest with you no matter what. They’ve both got great personalities.”

I also mentioned in the Tweet last night that Allen had his eye on the in-state recruiting already taking place by the Longhorn staff. Several of those in-state commits have been hitting up Allen every so often to do their own bit of recruiting.

“It’s actually kind of good, because other colleges like maybe OU or A&M – I don’t really have anyone in my class coming after me (from those schools).”

Allen believes the Texas of years past is just that: gone. Under Sarkisian, Allen told me he “knows it is going to change… that’s what makes me happy.”

I expect a decision to come in the first week or so of March and like I said last night, I love where the Longhorns stand.

I was talking about Ish because he's been talking to Gideon and I was distracted.

shaking get it together GIF

To your point though, it appears Gideon is becoming quite the volume recruiter.

All these dudes are safeties though, right? Who are the potential corners in this class (other than Brooks if we can get him)?

Denver Harris. He seems more gettable than Brooks at this point. Gimme Denver Harris and some stud from Cali. Domani Jackson seems unlikely AF, but who knows he is at Mater Dei. Prysock seems wide open, gettable, and part of the all name team. Fuck, lets do that.

If they have food, he's there.

Do y'all think we have a realistic shot at Wilson from IMG? Adding him to what we got cookin would be borderline erotic.

No shot. Only reason he tweets about Texas is to get Twitter followers. 0% chance he comes to Texas

yup, folks have said that it isn't real with him until he visits. 0.0% chance unless that happens.

(Super K) Where Things Stand With the First DB Class

  Reveal hidden contents

I’ll start with this tweet from last night…

***Among the top priorities in this class were Jaylon Guilbeau, Bryce Anderson, Denver Harris, and Bryan Allen.

***Guilbeau, as you know was committed when this Texas staff came in. He planned on decommitting and called coach Joseph to do so. But they were able to keep him in the boat and Jaylon seems very happy about that and is recruiting for Texas.

***Bryce Anderson was previously committed to LSU and before we went out to see him a couple of weeks ago, most had him as a TAMU lean. Leaving that visit, this was the tweet…

And to be clear, I never told Bryce to throw up the horns or to wear a Texas shirt.

It was clear, Texas had made a major move. Since then most in the recruiting world seem to agree.

I’d look for a decision sometime in April.

***Last time I spoke to Bryan Allen Jr was on the first of February.

At the time, it was clear he was down to Texas, Texas A&M and OU. I couldn’t get a clear sense of which direction he was leaning and my guess is he didn’t know either. I also got the very real sense that if Bama put down a serious offer, it would be a wrap.

Pretty clear that most of the recruiting world hasn’t had a good sense of where Allen was leaning either.

Fast forward to yesterday and…

Young CJ Vogel out did me on the scoop and perhaps even the photo skills!

Like with Bryce Anderson, I think you’ll start to see more folks in the recruiting world get the sense that CJ did – that Texas has pole position for Allen.

As CJ said, an announcement could come in March.

***This week, Denver Harris dropped his top four. Not surprisingly, Texas made the cut. Also included are TAMU, Bama and LSU.

Don’t yet have a strong sense of this one but the current commits are working on Harris and should Texas land Allen and Anderson, it could help. Anderson already told me that wherever he goes, he’s going to be recruiting Harris.

***Bottom line is, there is a real possibility that Texas could land most if not all of their very top defensive backs targets. And I know some will say, well, Herman did the same.

First, Texas beat TCU for Jamison. OU didn’t throw their hat in the ring and TAMU wasn’t pushing.

Foster was injured so schools had cooled on him. And by the time Anthony Cook made his decision, he had lost his spot at Ohio State and perhaps even Clemson.

It wasn’t the same competition and it wasn’t the same timeline. Herman also had the advantage of being the new energy after a different underwhelming tenure. Sark is taking over after two underwhelming tenures so he’s naturally going to have to deal with more “I’ll wait and see” skepticism.

Finally, Sark is dealing with Covid visit restrictions in his very first few months at Texas. I understand that everyone else is but the kids he’s recruiting have been to the other schools in the region prior to the Covid restrictions and met those coaches. Sark and company are new.

So, no, in my opinion, if Texas can close the deal on these guys, it’s not the same as the previous staff’s first year boon.

 

Interesting that he didn't mention Hullaby. Was he not a priority for this staff? I thought he was.

I sometimes forget about Guilbeau as well. I suppose the ideal 5th to those 4 would be Terrance Brooks

Great point. I forgot about Guilbeau who supposedly looked pretty good this past weekend at the 7on7.

Allen possibly next week. Kristopher Ross is supposed to pop on like the 23rd, right? Then Anderson in the first couple weeks of April. Plus there's always the possibility that an OL guy or two decide to pull the trigger sometime in this same timeframe (Devon Campbell, come on down).

Recruiting is gas, my dudes.

I doubt it. He showed up to a HS state championship around 2007 to "scout" some players. He arrived late, brought several goofy friends along, stood on one team's sideline, mostly texted and fucked off, then left before halftime. The dude sucks as a human being.
