Texas recruiting notes 2019

Recommended Posts

seems like he's also having difficulty playing school--and since he's from NJ, seems like an aggy lock:

In mid-August, head coach Nick Saban said during his press conference that Alfano missed three practices during the week due to personal reasons. Those absences forced Alabama’s No. 1 recruit to watch from the sidelines for the Tide’s first victory over the Duke Blue Devils. The following week, the defensive end missed practice, then again, did not play in the team’s home-opening win over New Mexico State. Saban said Alfano was “going through some discipline things with me” that related to academics.

Smith will very likely catch 100 balls next year and at least 40 as a true freshman (summer enrollee). What more do these kids want???

40 balls?  sounds like he wants to catch more.

if they were to get a kid like this along with Shepherd, they potentially would have an explosive locker room.  It can be done with a discipline first head coach and a crazy or two but Jimbo ain't that and he's crazy to boot.  We'll see if they go the full outlaw route.

Simmons: "Bad luck" has impacted Texas' young talent in 2019

ByAUSTIN NIVISON Nov 25, 6:36 PM

It’s been a frustrating season in Austin for Tom Herman and the Longhorns. While a good portion of the blame falls at his feet, there has been some bad luck that has factored in.

When a team starts the fall in the top 10 of the preseason rankings but sits at 6-5 through 11 games, there was bound to be some poor luck along the way. For the Longhorns, there is really no better example of that than taking a look at the team’s lauded 2019 signing class that was ranked No. 3 in the country by the 247Sports Composite Team Rankings.

On the latest episode of the Cover 3 Podcast, 247Sports Director of Scouting Barton Simmons did admit that it’s easy to see how Texas fans could feel so frustrated by the Herman era thus far, especially after how last year ended.

“There was no doubt about Tom Herman,” Simmons said. “He was the guy. Sam Ehlinger gets on the stage at the Sugar Bowl, and says, ‘We’re back.’ The program starts recruiting at a really high level. Now, you look up and holy cow. You’re telling me we could have a 6-6 season again? So, I can see how frustrating it is.”

However, Simmons also explained how Texas’ excellent 2019 signing class has already gotten off to an unfortunate start. For those looking at recruiting rankings and wondering how the Longhorns haven’t put it together under Herman just yet, Simmons breaks it down by taking a look at a handful of key players.

"We were talking in the office today before the pod that you can’t just blindly look at recruiting rankings and just think all is well,” Simmons said. “Texas’ 2019 class was No. 3 in the country. Highest ranked commit was Bru McCoy. Transfers out before the season. Jordan Whittington, second highest ranked player, has been injured all season. Jake Smith, the third-highest ranked player, has been a little disappointing so far. De’Gabriel Floyd, fifth highest ranked player, is out with spinal stenosis. Tyler Owens and Kenyatta Watson were both upside guys that were not expected to start right away. Roschon Johnson is a quarterback who was moved to running back and has actually been pretty good. Derrian Brown had a stroke before he could get to campus — another running back commit. It’s been a lot of bad luck. This will be interesting to see if they can get it back rolling again.”

While Texas should have been better than they were this fall, there were some factors out of Herman’s control that came into play this year. It will be interesting to see whether Herman’s team is able to bounce back after the program underachieved on the field this year.
