Home run hire
Another very solid hire. Definitely better than Hammock who had no connection to Texas as a recruiter. I don't expect him to bring in recruits from south La.; that simply doesn't happen. But if he can bring us some results from HISD, he is worth his weight in gold. We are a better staff from a recruiting perspective with him on board than we were last year.
To whoever doesn't already know or realize this, but this is BIG news. Great hire couldn't have done it any better. Major Applewhite's expertise is QBs, now he's coaching QBs and not RBs. Porter is dynamite on the recruiting trail, but don't sell him short as a pure coach coaching RBs. Great great job.
