“In what is becoming an almost ridiculous scenario…”

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it somewhat surreal that at the same time Georgia is waiting to see if its class of 2009 is filled, Texas has almost finished filling its class of 2010?

    No, but only because I am used to it. Texas always seems to have 80%+ of its class by the start of summer before the Sr year at the latest. I’ve never really read anything about Brown’s tactics so I don’t know if this is something he’s always pushed for at Texas or what. Or if this is something Texas has always enjoyed to at least some extent (maybe increasing under Brown?). But it’s all I remember from them, now. This year they are a little ahead of schedule I think, but not crazy ahead of schedule. I think they typically expect to pick up 8-10 commitments during some gala thing held earlier in the year.

    Thank goodness Mack isn’t going after Orson. To beat Pete, Mark should pledge two number seven jerseys to Orson and promise to call him ‘seven squared’ or ‘two touchdowns’, his choice.

    The advantage that Texas has is that the state produces 300+ D1 Football players every year and 250 of them have wanted to play for Texas since they were 5 years old, so as soon as they get an offer, they accept so the schollys don’t run out.

    Texas shouldnt really be compared to other schools with how much power they have in arguably the best talent state


  5. Eastbamadawg has a good point. Brown’s really the one who started this tactic at Texas, and it’s pretty shrewd. He has the advantage of being able to cherry pick the best players, and they’ve learned that he will fill up the class early with guys who really want to come to Texas. It’s the best of both worlds: guys who want to play for the homestate school, but could play for anybody in the country.
