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.

RECRUITING

OL Devon Campbell, Arlington Bowie - 2022: IT stopped by Bowie on Thursday to get the latest on the 6-4, 305-pound guard. First things first, Campbell plans to wait until the dead prior is lifted and he can go visit with staffs before making a decision. A trip to Oklahoma for the Sooners spring game is likely. Texas has continued to impress Campbell on zoom calls. The communication has been all positive, but Campbell wants to meet the staff in person. The offensive line coach relationship will be key in Campbell’s recruitment and decision making process. There is a lot of Texas in Campbell and family’s ear. Campbell’s uncle, a coach on staff at Bowie High, was high school teammates and is still good friends with Brandon Foster and Ryan Palmer.

DB Bryce Anderson, West Brook - 2022: There has been some talk of Anderson moving back a potential commitment timeline to the summer. Nothing is set in stone with a timeline. It’s possible Anderson could announce a decision in April, or wait until June or July. The likelihood of the dead period being lifted at the end of May is going to impact decision making timelines. One thing that hasn’t changed, Texas remains in the best position to win out for the versatile DB.

WR Evan Stewart, Frisco Liberty - 2022: His recent quotes to IT were fairly ominous but it wasn’t clear he intended on de-committing in less than a week. Texas will continue to recruit the elite prospect and will likely remain in his top group, but this one will come down to the wire. In that sense, not much changed in the last couple days. Stewarts wants to experience the genuine process and shouldn’t have committed to begin with. It happens.

WR CJ Williams, Mater Dei (Santa Ana, CA) - 2022: A source on the West Coast told IT that USC has Tetairoa McMillan higher on the board than Williams. While the Trojans don’t covet Williams as they do a few other WR’s on the board, there is a lot of pressure on the staff to have Williams as part of the class. If Williams committed elsewhere, that would actually take some pressure off of USC. That’s not to say Williams isn’t a quality wide receiver, but just where things are at with USC and the talented target receiver.

DE Aaron Austin, North Crowley - 2022: At 6-foot-3.5, 250 pounds, the Fort Worth area defensive end holds 15 offers including Colorado, Boston College, and Washington State. IT has learned the Texas staff is evaluating Austin, as are Baylor, Auburn, Ole Miss and others with Ole Miss likely to offer soon. Austin was born in Austin, where he lived for a few years until moving to Crowley. As a prospect, Austin has the frame to carry 290-300 pounds well proportioned, has a 78-79 inch wingspan and 10.25-inch hands.

CB Denver Harris, North Shore - 2022: The five-star corner had a productive call with cornerbacks coach Terry Joseph on Wednesday. The call was concerning scheme, how they practice, and how Joseph develops and coordinates his DB’s. One thing that stood out, Joseph showed numerous clips of mistakes being made in practice, then being corrected, and finally the DB’s making plays off those corrections on Saturdays. It was about a 20 minute call which is about the right amount for Harris. Joseph is striking a good balance between not being overly-aggressive and too hands off.

Don't remember ever hearing this guy's name, but the comedy is that his only CB is to A&M.

That's a huge geographic spread among his schools. Just need to swap out one of the Georgia's for Wyoming and he's got every region covered.

(Adam Gorney) Ranking the Contenders: Four-star athlete Ish Harris

Quote

Ish Harris has more than a dozen offers, but earlier this month the four-star athlete narrowed his list to six schools and there is no certainty yet on where he could end up. The Pilot Point, Texas, four-star athlete has Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and Utah as his finalists. A prospect who could play on either side of the ball, Harris can help every team on the list with his versatility and ability both on offense or defense, and that's why he's such an attractive recruit to his six top teams. In today’s Ranking The Contenders, we look at Brown’s six front-runners and put them in order of likelihood where he will commit.

*****
1. TEXAS A&M  

The feeling is that the Aggies hold an edge for Harris but that other schools are definitely within striking distance. There is a lot to like at Texas A&M, however, and Harris knows 2021 signees Deuce Harmon and Eli Stowers. If an agriculture studies program is what Harris wants to major in then College Station could make a whole lot of sense from both an academic and athletic standpoint.

*****
2. TEXAS

The offer from Texas is relatively new coming in mid-February, but the feeling is that it won’t negatively impact the Longhorns, especially now that coach Steve Sarkisian and new defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski – among other coaches – are making Harris a bigger priority. One big thing in Texas’ favor is that it plans to use Harris in a variety of ways and not just pigeonhole him into one spot. With his athleticism and playmaking ability, plus Texas’ big-time reputation, it could be a major deal for the four-star.

*****
3. OKLAHOMA

The Sooners did not offer until Feb. 17 and it was the most recent offer prior to Harris releasing his top six. Oklahoma making that cut is a major indication of just how important the Sooners will play in his thinking because Harris likes the program a lot and he knows it’s a big-time offer. Position coach Brian Odom may have some room to make up against other programs, but Oklahoma sells itself in many ways.

*****
4. OKLAHOMA STATE

Oklahoma State was the second offer for Harris, and it’s important to him that the Cowboys were the first major program to really get involved in his recruitment and stay involved. He has also visited Stillwater for a game weekend and really liked what he saw in town and on campus, but will it be enough to overcome some bigger power teams in the SEC and the Big 12? The Cowboys might have a little ground to make up there.

*****
5. BAYLOR

There are a lot of interesting things that could be playing a role in the Bears having a real shot at landing Harris. Coach Dave Aranda is a defensive-minded coach and Harris has been intrigued by his success at previous stops and what he’s trying to build at Baylor. The Bears also jumped in early in Harris’ recruitment and the education is strong, so the four-star will have to balance some recent struggles on the field and what he can contribute in Waco against some other programs on this list.

*****
6. UTAH

Harris could play a hybrid linebacker role in the Utes’ defense, move all over the field and make plays. He’s also being recruited by position coach Colton Swan, who has done an excellent job on the trail. One concern is that Harris has displayed signs that he’s leaning toward staying closer to home, so even though it’s a compelling proposition, Utah might be too far away for him.

Nick Harris:  Five-star Kelvin Banks discusses top eight schools, timeline for decision

Five-star Kelvin Banks discusses top eight schools, timeline for decision

Nick Harris
 

The state of Texas is proving to be deep in the 2022 cycle when it comes to offensive line talent, and Humble (Texas) Summer Creek offensive tackle Kelvin Banks is a big reason why.

Holding 24 offers from across the country, Banks cut his list to eight on his 17th birthday Wednesday as he starts to focus in on the schools that have shown him the most love thus far in the recruiting process. For Horns247, Banks discussed each of his top eight options:

Arkansas: "I love the coaches there, from day one. I didn't really know what to expect, but when I went on the virtual visit, I liked everything about it. Coach Pittman understands offensive linemen, where they come from and their certain situations, and he can help coach up the offensive line as well."

LSU: I love Coach Cregg. He's a good guy. We did a Zoom with my dad just talking about technique and stuff, my dad loved him. And then Coach O has a great personality."


Oklahoma: "I know they were pretty late coming in to offer, but they always kept in good communication with me even before they offered me. Even though they were late, they came in strong and had better communication than some coaches. Some other coaches would slack on it thinking they would already be in there."

Oklahoma State: "We have a really good relationship because it's almost been two years since we've been communicating with each other. It's a real good bond that we have. I talk to Coach Dickey, Coach Gundy and the whole recruiting staff there. It just feels like a place that I know and a place that I would succeed."

Ole Miss: "What really got me with Ole Miss was Coach Clements. He was at Florida State at first and I really liked him a lot and then when he went to Ole Miss, he offered me when he got there. I like Coach Kiffin, he's a genuine coach as well. Everyone I talk to there is just real genuine. I did a virtual with them as well."

Oregon: "I love Oregon as well. Coach Mirabal, he's a great guy as well. We did a virtual with them as well. Some coaches don't always be there, but he's someone you can always talk to. You don't gotta schedule a time to talk to him or anything. If he's free, he's gonna talk to you right then."

Texas: "What I really like about Texas is Coach Sark and Coach Flood. Coach Flood is a real good coach, I've sat there and watched his techniques and he showed me what they do. I love the coaching style and I love everything he does with the kids and how he develops his offensive linemen into NFL players."

Texas A&M: "Coach Henson, that's my guy. We talk probably three times a week just to get to know each other. Coach Fisher, I love his personality, I talk to him probably once a week. Texas and Texas A&M both had a birthday cake for me even though I wasn't there so that was pretty cool as well."

When looking for what program is Banks' best fit, he'll be looking for what program can provide him support all the way down from the coaches to the players and to the community on campus.

"The main thing that I really need to see from a program is the coaches and the brotherhood of the team and community," Banks said. "I don't want to go to a community and ask someone for something and they won't do it. As long as you're a good person, I'll have your back so I'm just looking for someone to have my back as well."

As far as a timeline goes for his decision, Banks plans on making five official visits if the NCAA dead period is lifted in the summer and will decide on which school best suits him soon after.

"I'm waiting to visit the five schools that I get the chance to," he said. "After that, I'll probably make my decision probably like right at the beginning of the season depending on how the visits go."

At 6-foot-5, 300 pounds, Banks is the No. 31 ranked recruit in the country for the class of 2022, according to 247Sports Composite. He is the No. 2 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 6 recruit from the state of Texas.

Yeah, those were definitely bad years for CB. They were fast but small, like 5'7"-5'8" - 170lbs.

Yeah, they were decent enough flying down on kickoff coverage but liabilities elsewhere

Nick Harris:  Kelvin Banks discusses Texas interest after including Longhorns in top eight

Kelvin Banks discusses Texas interest after including Longhorns in top eight

Nick Harris
 

Humble (Texas) Summer Creek five-star offensive tackle Kelvin Banks has emerged as one of the top targets for a handful of major programs in the state of Texas and across the country as he joins a crowded talented in-state offensive line class near the top.

Texas initially offered Banks ahead of his sophomore season in 2019 and was quickly re-offered by the new staff in January. Since then, Banks has been able to build solid relationships with Steve Sarkisian, offensive line coach Kyle Flood and special teams coordinator Jeff Banks.

"Our relationship is good," Banks said. "What I really like about Texas is Coach Sark and Coach Flood. Coach Flood is a real good coach, I've sat there and watched his techniques and he showed me what they do. I love the coaching style and I love everything he does with the kids and how he develops his offensive linemen into NFL players."

The motto "All Gas, No Brakes" has been heavily communicated by the new coaching staff, and it's been something that recruits have bought into early on, including Banks.

"That's a real good thing that I buy into," he said. "With 'All Gas, No Brakes' you're always going. There's never a point in your athletic career that you can feel like you can stop what you're doing. I don't really mess with rankings that much but I know that I'm a highly ranked guy, and I can't stop going and I can't stop my work ethic. That's basically what I take from 'All Gas, No Brakes.'"

Looking forward, Banks looks forward to seeing how the players buy in to the message and how it translates onto the field.

"I'm just waiting to see how the players buy into what Coach Sark tells them," he said. "Coach Sark, Coach Flood and Coach Banks have the material and I look forward to the players buying into what the coaches give them."

Banks visited Texas before the pandemic and came away with good impressions of the city of the Austin.

"It's a very high profile city where you can meet a lot of new people," he said. "I always like to meet new people and make new friends. There's a lot of things to do out there, you won't be just sitting in your room. On your free days, you can go out with your friends and do stuff."

As far as a timeline goes for his decision, Banks plans on making five official visits if the NCAA dead period is lifted in the summer and will decide on which school best suits him soon after.

"I'm waiting to visit the five schools that I get the chance to," he said. "After that, I'll probably make my decision probably like right at the beginning of the season depending on how the visits go."

At 6-foot-5, 300 pounds, Banks is the No. 31 ranked recruit in the country for the class of 2022, according to 247Sports Composite. He is the No. 2 offensive tackle in the country and the No. 6 recruit from the state of Texas.

Cmon, man, at least spell his name right. It's spelled "Whiny Pussybitch."
