Has Cody Jackson shown any interest in UT? 

He went to Ceedee Lamb's high school and is friends with him. Given what Lamb did at OU, what would you do?

I understand the sentiment and agree with you, but feel it's also noteworthy that he transferred into Lamb's old school fairly recently.

The Brocks have always talked up the school they had just visited. Doesn't mean they are going to commit there - it's just that they are very respectful of the all the schools that host them, and yet 9:95ers fall for it every time. Don't pay attention to what they say now. It's really simple as it comes to Texas' chances with them - win 10+ games and we land them; win 8 or less, and the class starts to disintegrate along with the football program.

They aren’t waiting until the last game to evaluate our season. It will be decided by the OU game. We beat LSU and OU early and then they’ll be ours.  We lose both, then we lose them.  We split, then probably 75% we don’t land them. 
They are looking for reasons to not come here. We need to make it clear very early that we are on the rise to be up there with the Clemsons and Bamas, but located in their home state and daddy’s school.

What a weird way to phrase "they want to win a lot"

To get the best recruits...we just need to win?

I felt like I’ve heard this before 

Well, sure, but nobody around here has actually, like, you know... tried it in a while.

Ask Matt Rhule. We have no excuse to lose more than 1-2 games a year playing in this league where we outmatch every team but OU when it comes to talent.

We get it, you're the resident Hand skeptic.   Between this post, @Blackcat00 floating in to tell us everything's going to be fine with a drifting 5-star recruit, and @golfclap using Drayton as his negative example in a mostly unrelated post, everyone's really playing the hits today.

Excerpt from Humidor

Quote

Speed and coverage is the name of the game. Even before the Overshown move became official we were hearing rumblings of how important running and coverage ability was. I had a feeling things would become more noticeable when they started offering kids and you can see it in the offers (I'll post more about that tomorrow).

Basically, they're not looking for big corners, they're looking for cover corners. They still want length but they're not going to sacrifice movement skills for it. Reference Isaiah Dunson from the last cycle who this staff backed off of. Big corners will become safeties, big safeties will become linebackers.

Here is Rivald state rankings for Texas released today.  Jordon Thomad at #51 seems low.  They aren't high on Elijah Arroyo or Terrance Cooks.

Stowers at 24 is going to melt aggy's little mind.

Burris at 15 and Jackson at 33?

Surprised to see Nussmeier at 14, right behind Stone.  Robertson at 58!

To be fair, they put a lot of emphasis on how the player will perform in the NFL, so I think it's a good rating. Sure, Mahomes barely made the league, but what else has he done?

Did anyone have him as a 4* ?

Not a service or a star, but fwiw Bobby Burton I clearly remember touring Mahones as an elite NFL qb while he was still at tech. He was then only guy I remember going out on that limb, and doing it loudly.

Not saying he’s a great evaluator, but he seems to be the most accurate 9.95 er, IMO.  I know, that’s a low bar.

Agree it’s a low bar. Some are better than others, but most are just throwing shit against the wall to see what sticks. For every “great evaluation”, there are a hundred way off target. Just people like to go back and cherry pick the random successful guesses and attribute that to skill without including the whole picture. 

If they want, 247 could track this evaluation metric over time. But I’m wagering the difference between good evaluators and bad evaluators isn’t the chasm people expect it to be

(Mike Roach) The Breakdown: A closer look at Texas QB recruiting

Quote

Plan to sign: 2

Commits: 1 (Jalen Milroe)

Top Targets: Sawyer Robertson, Garrett Nussmeier

On the radar: Kaidon Salter

On scholarship at Texas in 2020: 4 - Sam Ehlinger (SR), Casey Thompson (RS-SO), Hudson Card (FR), Ja’Quinden Jackson (FR)

Breakdown: Despite having a stellar commitment in Jalen Milroe, Texas is still looking at taking two at the position. In the age of the transfer portal, taking extra numbers at the quarterback position is almost a requirement. Ehlinger enters his senior year, and Thompson is the only other quarterback on the roster with any game experience. Still, Thompson contemplated leaving Texas before last season and even entered his name into the transfer portal for a short period of time before pulling it out following the departure of Cameron Rising. Should Thompson have the same ideas this spring, Texas would be down to two true freshman behind Ehlinger.

Before Texas made the decision to recruit secondary options at quarterback, they communicated everything to Jalen Milroe and his family. Still, taking two quarterbacks is a delicate high-wire act, but it’s not one this staff is unfamiliar with. In their first full cycle, Texas took a two-man class of Rising and Thompson. Though they eventually lost Rising to the portal, there were no real hiccups along the way. Herman and his staff did it once again in 2020 when they landed two 247Sports top 100 prospects in Card and Jackson.

It will be another difficult tightrope with Milroe already on board and a vital piece of the 2021 recruiting class. Not only is Milroe a strong recruiter, he has an incredible ceiling at the quarterback position and the dual-threat skill Tom Herman typically recruits. Yurcich targeted two pro-style passers in Robertson and Nussmeier. Outside of the two initial offers, Yurcich hasn’t moved on any other passers, but he did stop by Cedar Hill to see Salter during January. The Longhorns don’t seem to be close to adding that second quarterback to the group, but you can bet they will if they’re able to find the right guy.

Anwar:  "Corby Meekins is leaving his support staff role to coach tight ends at Houston"

Wondering how well this current coaching staff is gonna be able to recruit in the Houston area now.  Might be good for Herman to hire another Texas High School coach as an analyst along with Everett Withers??

Nahlin was talking him up as an NFL prospect while he was at Tech as well.

Burton was also very very high on Jalen Hurts and didn't understand how Charlie didn't go after him instead of Buchele.  He even wrote that at the end of the cycle notes for 2016, and I remember Shag (including me) making fun of him for acting like Shane wasn't a better prospect.

Are you saying he was right or wrong? I'm not really sure but Hurts didn't do anything to suggest that Burton was definitely right. Shane played on a team with a horrendous coaching situation and then had to leave because he didn't fit the new scheme.

Hurts QBd two teams to the Playoff. This is a dumbass take.

While I generally agree with your point, the supporting casts they had were a biiiiit different. You could use that argument to say he's obviously better than Mahomes or Lamar.

The number of QBs that couldn't QB Alabama to the playoffs is pretty small. OU's last 2 QBs QB'd them to the playoffs and managed to not get buttfucked to a record breaking tune in it. Making the playoffs from the Big 12 has not been noteworthy since the only team with comparable talent has been us.
