    My thinking was he probably won't start immediately at Texas, but would most likely start at Mizzou. But the pods change everything.

    Texas seems to get a 5 star RB, WR and QB EVERY SINGLE YEAR...many years getting the #1 player at one or more of those key skill positions.

    How can you NOT he successful when you do that year in, year out?!

    Gamecock for life. That is like kid that was 1000 percent committed to Miami for 4 weeks. During that lengthy period he was 1000 percent committed and loyal

    I think the older bro realized he wouldn't play at UF and goes to UA where little bro then commits. Then older bro doesn't play at UA either and now he's Oregon bound.

    I just read this kid's timeline.
    He left UF and went to Miami. Then Commits to Purdue. Now Colorado.

    He deserves Prime.

    He was committed to South Carolina before flipping to UF. Enrolled at UF and subsequently transferred before getting to Fall Semester to UM. Sad case. Perhaps fit his life back in track at JUCO

    I honestly haven't paid that much attention to their recruiting, but I seem to remember $aban grabbing the top Texas kids for a while. Herman wasn't recruiting lights out either I don't believe? $ark definitely lea$ned a $hing or 2 fr$m $aban.

    Texas may be one of the few schools with more blue chip players than us that has underperformed on the field as much or more than we have in the last decade.

    We lose divisions next year so him going to Mizzou would’ve been better than him going to Texas, everything being equal.

    I heard a scout say that Texas high school football plays at a higher level because of coaching and development support than any other state so their players produce more. However, a lot of those kids may hit their ceiling once they get to college when kids from Fl, Ga, SC, etc will get a lot better once in college. He also said that the Texas Universities were under a lot of pressure from Texas high school coaches to take Texas kids versus out of state players.

    Not sure if that is true anymore but something I keep in mind with Texas and A&M.
