Texas Recruiting Notes 2022 - All Gas No Brakes


Recommended Posts

I just watched Hutson's film and didn't get a great feel for him. Lots of it is filmed from the surface of the moon and it's a lot of clips of him just flattening kids that he outweighs by 90 pounds.

Good mean streak. Feet look pretty nimble. They actually show a little pass pro which seems rare for OL tapes. He lets guys get into his body a little too much but otherwise looks pretty good. He's a guard all the way, FWIW.

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.

Doubt we are recruiting him but Kilgore has a tough little athlete (last name) named Rider, who plays both ways, including some safety/linebacker.

Hard working staffs never turn down a coach who reaches out.

He fucking bailed on Tom Herman, just like the rest of us.  I will never understand dying on this hill.

Same.

"FUCK TOM WE NEED TO LOSE AT LEAST ONE MORE GAME SO HE GETS FIRED!"

"FUCK EWERS HE DECOMMITTED FROM TOM!"

I think it's the fact that he immediately committed to tOSU that rubs people the wrong way.

The problem isn’t that he decommitted.  No one will blame him for that.  He immediately flipped to tOSU.  That’s fine as well.  Here’s where the issue lies.  From my understanding from what was posted on various boards was that Sark had given him multiples chances to flip and was basically told he’s sticking with tOSU.  Since then, we seem to be picking up the best skill players and got ourselves a 5 star QB that is very well liked by his peers.  Sark has had a relationship with Murphy’s family for a while.  I think taking Ewers commitment will probably make Sark look very bad in the eyes of a lot of west coast recruits, trainers, and coaches.  If Ewers is indeed getting cold feet (who knows how true this is), our coaches will need to weigh if it’s worth the negative effects of it at this point.  Another consideration would be if we have an average season due to injuries or a coaching transition, Ewers has already shown he will bail immediately.  
 

I’m interested to see how this plays out but either way, we’re going to be on the winning end with whomever we take at QB.

I've heard nothing but good things about her. Very interesting title though. #1 it means that recruiting department will be large scale, #2 wonder if it means anything for Harris.

Harris' and Searels' roles were different

This isn't really a new position. She'll facilitate visits, set things up for parents, etc. We had someone doing this already under Herman.  It doesn't have anything to do with Harris' role.

If him and Klubnik really do hate each other wouldn’t Ohio State reaching out to him really rub off Ewers?

Was the previous person in charge of on-campus recruiting Jordyn Fields or someone else?

it was Jordyn.  She flexed a bit last season to pick up some non recruiting logistics when Tori Tekyl left, but her main gig was working with Carrington/Chang on making sure the recruiting visits went smoothly.

Think Ewers back to Texas is over.  I agree he probably committed to us and then to tOSU to quickly. 

The thing that sucks about that whole deal is that it was the easiest recruitment we could have had to get the best QB to come out of Texas in quite some time.

We had to really,  really  try hard to fuck that deal up and Tom Herman did it.

It was much less of a layup initially than people are making it out to be. Herman and, especially, Yurcich, for all their flaws, did a really good job fighting off Riley for him.

Not really a layup,  but he truly did want to come to Texas and he did commit quickly.  Maybe to quick.

2022 players that didn't grow up aggy :: "Who the fuck is Reggie McNeal?" 

 

 

I can't imagine that a self guided tour of College Station will help aggy here. But on second thought, Jimbo can't be there to show him film of how well he would fit into their dink and dunk offense (i.e. repeatedly run deep to help the TE and RBs get open), so maybe it will work better this way for them.

Any football related ranking with Reggie McNeal higher than Jamaal Charles is a load of pure bullshit unless it's a list of who was worse. 

RJ Young is a dumb ass sooner

In some ways, texifornia is our troll. He apparently masturbates to posting shitty takes from BON and elsewhere onto this site and watching us react. 

A good sense of superiority needs to be cultivated, like a campfire. BON comments are the kindling - a nice easy burst of "wow I'm better than them" that flames out quickly when you think about what those people's lives must be like.
