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.

Haven't really heard much of LSU being a factor for many Texas kids this cycle.  They have 1 commit from Texas in CB Marcus Scott, who I don't think has ever been mentioned on these boards.  Just seems a little odd to not hear them mentioned with many guys.  Would be nice to flip the script for once and get Mathews.

I think Scott is a Louisiana transplant, too

I first mentioned this guy in this thread like a month ago as my hope for an additional CB. I did that for no other reason than I thought his name was fucking greatness while clicking through a CB list at 247. If he ends up signing with Texas I will claim for the rest of my board life that I had it the whole fucking way for the greatest UT name since Happy Feller.  Or Lance Gunn. Or Cotton Speyer. Or Colt McCoy. Or someone else because we’ve had a lot of cool names.

She was my wife's lady-doctor when we had our kids. Cut our first-born out of my wife. Did a great job on stitching the wife back together. Her practice got too busy so my wife switched.

Why's the ranking low?  Seems to have all the big school offers.

Unranked on ESPN, Rivals just lowered him, and 247 haven't moved off of their initial 87 ranking.  It's not like he doesn't have exposure at IMG. He's 6'6, 315 and his film shows pretty raw. Not great at pass pro, just a huge human who is great at driving people off the ball, which is the appeal.

He's 6'6 325 playing at IMG, so he's getting offers. That was not impressive highlight tape, but honestly not unimpressive. Just meh.

Yeah, he plays inside in high school and has decent, not good and not bad, feet. He will have to play inside in college. He is big and can move people if he can continue to move himself.

Idk how you look at that frame and come to this conclusion. Alex Leatherwood was the same size coming out of hs, reshaped a bit and had a stellar career at Tackle. I'm not saying he's Leatherwood, but I don't think it's fair to make this assumption on the first 4 plays of the kids hudl.

I can't think of many modern players who have moved from inside in high school to outside in college and considering he is kind of fat and doesn't move real well, I don't think he will be one of the few. BTW, Alex Leatherwood was a 5 star tackle in high school and their tape isn't comparable.

It's IMG. An all star team. He plays both guard and tackle in his hudl, and this wouldn't be uncommon at a school where they have no shortage of massive dudes. 

I made no comments comparing Leatherwood's film to Bah's, only their frames, and the point was that this staff takes the big guys that the last staff wouldn't. Leatherwood is a bad example, let's use Damieon George. 6'6, 345lb George took game snaps at Tackle. At Alabama. As a true Freshman.

It seems size is not a disqualifier for Flood, so "he's a guard at the next level" is pretty much ill-informed bullshit, wouldn't ya say?

IMG kids are mercenaries. You don't really start pipelines there. You just hope to independently land one of their players from time to time

Yeah, Damieon George is a better example. He played tackle in high school and had pretty average feet. Looking at his tape, you wouldn't think that he would be successful on the outside at the next level.

Saying he had pretty average feet in high school is being nice about it 

Sometimes guys make it at tackle by just being huge and taking up space

He is a pretty heavy footed dude, but looks to be an earth mover type so that may not be the end of the world. His pass protection on the interior looks decent, although he didn't seem to have highlights against an equal caliber athlete on pass rush. All in all, I think he has some things you can work with. It is hard for me to see him as a tackle, but who am I to argue.

That may be true to an extent, but grabbing one or two guys a year from IMG makes it much more likely to grab a guy in the following years.

I'd love for Texas to somehow work the new NIL program into something with IMG's marketing, sports management, and agent division to help steer kids to Texas.
