That sucks, but I hope can still be in the Jermaine Roberts recruitment. That kid is a gem at DB.
How come Texas can never get these instant commits from OOS kids who visit?
The SEC is just one big recruiting "state". Texas has always been the OOS school. This is the product of a century of Texas only looking instate for their needs. At least until recently. Will take several years to get widely accepted in OOS recruiting.
When we were a perennial top 10 program, we didn't really try to nab the elite OOS player. Now that we are functional at best, we are starting to go for the OOS kid but no joy. We will have to become a Biig 12 Champion and/or BCS player to see whether we really can or not. I think we can but the above has to happen first. The problem is I just don't think Mack can get us there any longer. And that is a conundrum with its own set of issues.
When was the last time UT had this many offers out to kids? Sign of the times.
From a rivals article. Did he see one of our practices?
"I didn't really get to see the whole campus as much as I would have liked to, but I really liked what I did see," said Paul. "The team's practice was really eye opening though because of how hard they go the whole time and how they don't fool around out there."
While taking in Saturday's first full pads practice of the spring, Paul had a chance to watch UF offensive line Coach Tim Davis in action.
"What I took from watching him was that he doesn't fool around and he has the guys get after it. I really liked that," said Paul of Davis. "I want a coach that wants me to work harder. Coach Davis talked with me a little bit out there about what the drills was they were running and why they were running it."
It's amazing......when we were the top dog we rarely looked OOS........now we are one of many and we have tons of offers OOS because we are getting our ass handed to us in state.
He must have missed it when Searles threw his hat on the ground.

Even if we did hanging on to them for 10 months is going to be a massive fight.
And IMO it was a huge mistake not to cash in when we were red hot.
