You can't possibly be this dense?  Sterns was playing on one ankle in the LSU game. Blame Orlando for having Sterns out there.

I think Kenny Vaccaro ran worse than a 4.6 and was a 1st round pick

ran a 4.63 looks like

then evidently had a hip flexor injury that kept him from running a 40 at his pro day: https://www.sbnation.com/nfl-mock-draft/2013/3/26/4149672/texas-pro-day-results-kenny-vaccaro-marquise-goodwin-alex-okafor

That dude's good and they offered a month before us, but still we should have this one locked down. We'll see if the CBs start flipping over.

He set a commitment date this week, he's already made a decision, this "trending" stuff is nonsense.

It's just the 9.95ers hedging because they aren't sure. TFB usually is a little better than this, but they've sunk down to everyone else here.

wonder if they are the ones doing his video?

his recent follows are all across the map: https://twitter.com/Jaydon_88/following?lang=en

2 OU writers, official A&M site, coaches at L'ville, UConn, U of Illinois, Auburn, Cal and Les Miles. 

his likes have a bunch of OU stuff in it from the last 24 hours, but they offered last night at like 945p so that makes sense along with his 2 most recent followers. 

Spoiler

(if he commits anywhere but Texas everyone will be shocked)

Conner is the same way. Not the level of prospect of Milroe or the Brocks, but he's been recruiting everyone that will listen to him.

IT: Recruiting Notebook - 

Spoiler

By: Justin Wells and Ian Boyd

This week we tackle the Brockermeyer twins in Fort Worth, goes across town to checkout a 2021 linebacker target, and finishes up in the Big Ten with a potential grad transfer. Another shelter-in-place Notebook.

Tarik Black: 6-3, 215 - Cheshire Academy (Cheshire, CT/Michigan transfer)
Hudl/highlights

How he fits at Texas: Black is a big, talented outside receiver from Connecticut that was long regarded as the most promising talent in the Michigan wide receiver room until multiple injuries derailed his career. He's big and has some speed, the latter point is still there after some injuries and he's now 6-3, 215 pounds with two years of eligibility remaining. At Michigan he fell behind Nico Collins and Ronnie Bell on the wide receiver pecking order in an offense that also regularly targets tight ends, so he's moving on for a fresh opportunity. For Texas he could fit into a lot of roles and was in the regular rotation at a few different spots last year in their new RPO spread offense. His most obvious fit is outside where he knows how to use his size to get to spots on slants and inside routes. He still has some deep ball threat to his game but he's closer to being a possession receiver at this point. He'll likely fit in either as a veteran opposite Brennan Eagles that can be in the right places or a back-up in the X that allows a younger player like Marcus Washington to compete for the second outside receiver starting job. With another year of removal from his injuries, Black could be a punisher for teams that want to try and bracket Eagles. - @Ian Boyd

Coach says: Strengths - Well-built and good height. Body has matured in a college strength and conditioning program. Good lower body explosiveness and first steps are decisive and quick off the line. Acceleration and straight-line speed appear about average. I am guessing +/- 4.6. Has a lot of usage as the field/Z but some boundary/X as well. Has a plan and executes against press coverage. Shows great change of direction and his old, unofficial shuttle times under 4 seconds would confirm this. Has very good lower body explosiveness and this is evident in his route running as he explodes out of his cuts. Not only a great route runner but a very good route seller. Has very nuanced movements to set up the defenders. Uses every bit of his frame against the defender. Available film shows soft hands and a natural catching motion away from his body. Always physical at the point of attack as a blocker and has above average highlights in that regard. Was an ESPN 300 player coming out of high school. Had a lot of athletic accolades at the high school level. Appears to be a good student as well and it’s fair to expect that he’s coming in as a well-spoken and mature upperclassman who can mentor the younger guys like Tre Watson did for the running back room.

Areas for Improvement / Concern - Frankly, he’s a question mark. Had one foot or the other broken in consecutive years and fell quickly down the depth chart that he stood poised to take over even as a freshman. Saw him get successfully harassed by smaller DBs at times. The physical traits are there which just don’t seem to have translated into real results at the college level. He’s a tale of “what could have been” for Michigan fans and it’s just not clear how much of this falls on the player, the QB play or the injuries.

How this affects Texas: UT needs a veteran wideout for 2020's season. They need a guy that's played at a high level of D-1 football and can bring a maturity to the wide receiver room. Frankly, Sam Ehlinger needs him. After LJ Humphrey (2018) and Devin Duvernay (2019) were Ehlinger's go-to guys the last two seasons, the senior signal-caller needs a Tarik Black type that can come in and stabilize a talented, yet relatively inexperienced WR core. As of today, Black is quiet about his future plans, but we've heard from multiple sources that expect Texas to be right in the thick of things when he does ultimately enroll. Remember, it's often difficult for a grad transfer to get accepted at UT, but coach Tom Herman has a penchant for finding those guys, like Calvin Anderson, Tre Watson, and Parker Braun. If Black can be a good percentage of what he used to be, this will help the UT passing attack. - @Justin Wells

Jaydon Williams: 6-1, 195 - DFW (South Oak Cliff)
Hudl/highlights

How he fits at Texas: Williams is the kind of guy that could blow up as a senior once he moves to a position where his projection is more obvious. As a junior he played as a defensive end at 195 and while he was productive there (eight sacks in nine games), he's obviously not going to be a defensive end in college. His agility and physicality at the point of attack could translate very well though to linebacker and putting him into space with the spread could be counterproductive at times because he's hard to block in that setting. Williams has quick reactions and isn't afraid to scrap, he's an obvious project for Big 12 inside linebacker down the line. - IB

Coach says: Strengths - Tall and lean athlete with long legs and plenty of room to mold him into the body type you want. Shows obviously explosiveness right from the snap and shows great acceleration off the edge. Good balance and quick feet. Good hip roll and bend. Very good change of direction and straight line speed as a converted wide receiver. Shows a lot of physical pop taking on blockers and hitting the ball carrier. Great special teams highlights. Gets downfield on coverage in a hurry and arrives ready to hit. Loves Texas. Could turn into a monster. Given the body type, you probably have a lot of position versatility here. Put 30-40 lbs on him and turn him loose. I see him best in space at Will backer.

Areas for Improvement / Concern: He’s definitely a project. Was used situationally as a pass rusher and even though he was effective, he needs to develop a repertoire. Hand usage isn’t bad but could be better. Will need more functional upper and lower body strength which will come along once he’s in a college S&C program.

How this affects Texas: The UT staff constantly hunts for linebackers in the Big 12. Guys that can cover, shoot gaps, don't get caught in the wash, and go sideline-to-sideline. In the spread era, a backer that can accomplish these things are difficult to find. In 2021's class, we're seeing more and more of the demand for these type traits. Williams might be one of those dudes. He's a fast, aggressive ball-hawk and fits exactly what Texas DC Chris Ash wants in a Will backer. Williams could give UT some wiggle room with its LB takes in this cycle. With Texas looking good for ILB Terrence Cooks (Alvin Shadow Creek), Williams could be the complementary piece in 2021. Even though Arizona State is making a push, I like where Texas stands today. He'll announce his decision on Friday, May 1st. - JW

Tommy Brockermeyer: 6-6, 283 - DFW (All Saints Episcopal)
Hudl/highlights

How he fits at Texas: Big, athletic, long, and extremely tenacious, Tommy is the left tackle of his class. Probably the biggest weak spot from his sophomore film was a lack of weight, which is an obvious non-issue down the line and he's already 25 pounds or so heavier than he played at in his sophomore season. He has a knack for leverage that will be monstrous when he arrives at his college playing weight and strength and has real athleticism that translates in the run game as a puller or climbing to the second level and not just in neutralizing edge-rushers. He'll likely play early in his career and potentially somewhere besides left tackle just to get him on the field sooner than later. Down the line left tackle is his if things progress as they should. - IB

Coach says: Strengths - Possesses ideal height and frame for the position. Toned midsection. Great hip and knee bend. Fires quickly off the snap with control and stays balanced. Has smooth feet and has very good change of direction for the position. No false steps. Some outstanding reach blocks, down blocks and drives guys back consistently. Stuns defenders consistently. Reaches second level easily. Shows great power on his run blocking and literally looks like he’s bench pressing the defender. Has high work rate in the open field and is out there taking names. Finishes everything. He’s going to wreck some guys. Pass sets are generally good with a nice two-kicks at 45 degrees. Hands generally good and obviously coached up. Isn’t going to consistently give up to speed or power. High floor and high ceiling player. Pedigree is top class.

Areas for Improvement / Concern: Gets off balance at times and the talent advantage that lets him get away with it is going to disappear in college. Lunges a little bit more than I think he has to. I’d like to see his hands stay inside a little more but hey, if the Big XII isn’t calling holding on OU, perhaps we can play that game too. Shoulder surgery caused him to miss junior year.

How this affects Texas: In a state loaded with obscene talent for the 2021 class, Tommy is the top dog. He's everything UT needs, or any school for that matter, in an offensive tackle. He likely solidifies the left tackle spot, thus protecting the blind side of QB's Hudson Card, Ja'Quinden Jackson, or Jalen Milroe. Mainly, he locks down a tackle spot in this cycle and allows the staff to build around his stature. He's been ranked as the top player in Texas for a year, and a Top 10 prospect nationally. When Clemson, Alabama, and LSU are knocking down your door, you've got a dude. It also helps to have a father who played in Austin, a brother on campus, Luke, and another brother in the same class, James (read below). He could be the franchise left tackle that NFL teams covet. - JW

James Brockermeyer: 6-3, 273 - DFW (All Saints Episcopal)
Hudl/highlights

How he fits at Texas: Because Tommy missed 2019 with a shoulder injury, James broadened his horizons and played some left tackle for All Saints and performed quite well. He does fit well outside for college but not because of lack of quickness and skill but because he's 6-3 with limited reach. When you see clips of James executing combo blocks or playing inside you see how much more comfortable he is translating his quickness and knowhow to completely dominant. He'll be a center in college and that junior year spent on an island in pass protection will help him some in shoring up that dimension of his game. As a run blocker he's a mauler that knows how to get low and use his quickness off the ball to blow holes in the middle of defenses. - IB

Coach says: Strengths - Ideal interior lineman height and has a solid frame to work on. Has position versatility with highlights at tackle and center. Shows good, quick initial steps and reliably gets to the second level. Shows a good stun/punch at contact and really gets the defender’s attention. Gets inside his defender’s frame consistently and has some good finishes on tape. Recovers well when he’s bull rushed and shows a good wrestling hop move to recover and win that consistently. Shows good upper body strength on film. Obviously well-coached and hand placement generally good despite him carrying the hands a bit low to start. Center play is always a plus and tells me he’s a smart player who understands defensive fronts. Pedigree is top class. Gets good results even when it doesn’t look pretty.

Areas for Improvement / Concern: Doesn’t consistently come out of his stance with good bend and will get too vertical. Will rely too heavily on upper body strength and lose leg drive quickly. A little stiff when engaged and the lateral movement isn’t quite what I’d hoped. I love him a lot more as interior line/center before I would ask him to be a tackle. He’ll function better in a phone booth. Some highlights appear taken from the next county making assessment difficult.

How this affects Texas: Package deals are often discussed but rarely come to fruition. This isn't one of those times. James will join his brother, Tommy, at the same school next year. The brothers are convinced attending the same school is the best way to go the college route. Can you blame them? With older brother, Luke, already a linebacker in Austin, the Brockermeyer legacy might live on if both ink with Texas. James fits in this class because he'll be the only center take. He's got some guard ability, but he'll be maximized snapping the football. He's Herb Hand's other wet dream. - JW

From someone filled into happenings at Manor on IT, quote pulled by @Fud

Quote

Great kid, good hitter, good ball skills, good size, not sure about speed, top 11% of his class, good attitude, in the Early College program and part of the MICA cohort which is engineering focused. He’ll be an asset. He’s the opposite of Princely.

Emmett Jones and Anotnio Peace. One guy who should be on staff and another guy who I'd love to have taken a legit run at if Herman wasn't such a fucking ego-maniacal prick.

Would be huge. Ingram, Roschon, Bijan, Wheaton is a stacked RB depth chart, and that's not even mentioning Whittington. I know some here like Johnson over Wheaton, but with the way LSU is rolling right now, not much reason to feel good there.

Wonder if Roach has some actual info or if it was more of "bold prediction!" type fluff.

Take this FWIW, but a poster on another board is saying the aggy staff was furious over the Jackson commit to LSU with the Pleasant Grove staff and may have burned some bridges.  Could help with Burris.

That and the fact that Ash has his nickel back train with the LBers a lot in practice seems like it’s almost a guarantee that Adimora will win the nickel spot over Cook.
