Yeah, I saw Redding decommitted. Of all the recruits we have committed, he was the least of losing. TEs aren't make or break positions but having ones that can block and catch balls to bail out QBs are important but even the best TEs need other things before they are good like a good running game so their compliment game of getting open when LBs bite on play action or QB read in order to really do damage.

Sucks to lose any commit but at 6'5/215 and from what I saw he was much more a WR that is listed as a TE ala Rushing that we have and even Rushing still needs to grow into TE position with blocking being his biggest obstacle so far.

We'll still add likely 2 TEs in this class is my guess.

I know FCS usually must sit out when they go FBS but he's a Preferred walk-on so I'm wondering if they'll try to do a waiver on him. If he must sit, then I'm assuming Ballard (SFA transfer this past spring) must sit as well.

Feel free to correct me if I am wrong, but if he was a non-recruited walk-on at UCA, he can transfer and not have to sit out a year. "Recruited" is defined as:

• If they provide the prospect with an official visit.
• If they have an off-campus contact with the prospect or the prospect’s parents or legal guardians.
• If they offer the prospect a National Letter of Intent or an athletic scholarship agreement.
• If they initiate a telephone conversation with the prospect or his parents or legal guardians more than one time.

There may be more or less restrictions at the conference level, too, as well as practice participation limits I think. Just trying to piece together what I remember from the Baker Mayfield situation last summer and quick google search.

Trevor was on campus today and already has an offer.

Also, I couldn't find his tweet but I know we offered a DE/DT Nathalohn Nanai and I do believe we offered another OL either this week or late last week.

We've been busy.

Withers and posse can offer as many people as they want all year long but they'll find there's a huge difference between getting an offer out and getting a commit...

Why don't think take the recruits to the Float Fest?
I guess if the players go, Withers will kick them off of the team.

Looking at our outstanding 2018 offers as the 2017 season is just on the horizon here are some of the recruits that we've offered and still stand a chance of landing:

Stanley Lambert, WR .8496
Caden Leggett, WR .8226
Imiee Cooksey, WR .8004
Josh Owens, OT .7632
Steven Shaw, DE .8205
Braden Cassity, DE .8266
D'emrik Thomas, DE .8099
Marcus Mosley, DE .8221
Marquise ConcholaDE .8538
Jace Waters LB .8004
Jordan Rucker CB .8277
Rodney McGraw S .8388
Ladarius Anthony S .8165
Tyrus Wheat S .7993

Other than these guys we're pretty much at the mercy of P5s filling class for early signing day and pulling offers on some of the lower guys on their radar, or someone decommits and commits to us....or we continue to make more offers though at this point in time not sure how many more quality guys are out there to extend offers to

Because as festivals go, that one really sucks. Terrible logistics now a couple years in a row. The promoter might have good music connections, but he can't run a festival to save his life. It was borderline dangerous this year.

[list=][*]Lack of water stations in 100+ degree weather
[*]Lack of shitters, leading to overflowing
[*]Lack of transportation logistics (shuttle system was terrible)
[*]Lack of sufficient staffing
[*]And now the San Marcos River looks like the riverbed is silver from all of the sunk cans, and that is even with a team of volunteers in the river completely unrelated to FloatFest trying to prevent it[/list]

Sorry... FloatFest is a sore spot for me. If you want to know where draconian government regulations come from, it is a direct result of bad actors like the FloatFest promoters. They need to go take lessons from ACLFest, because that group somehow managed to make peace with an impressively engaged & uppity neighborhood adjacent to Zilker Park.

Bobbumman... How do you know where we are with these guys? Just wondering. I hope your right!

this is a terrible idea, for about a dozen reasons. the simplest one being that you can't control what happens to kids under your watch.

3rd DL Commit and 2nd in 2 days!

Keff Ciardello Retweeted Trevor Lawrence
#TXST COMMIT No. 14: Whitehouse DE Trevor Lawrence. 6'5", 250-lbs, c/o 2018. Offers from #ULM and Arkansas Tech. http://www.hudl.com/profile/4478723/trevor-lawrence …

I remember watching his Hudl video and was happy he visited or was scheduled to a few weeks ago during our heavy recruiting weekend (The #PartyinthePark event we've done last 2 years). He came to TXST again this past weekend, I believe.

Now, it seems we have a DT, NT, and DE types in Lawrence, Nanai, and Lynch. I'm sure we may consider adding one more based on position need be it DT, NT, or DE. Either way, its good to know we have 5 OL and 3 DL commits for our base needs. I wouldn't be surprised to see both sides of ball add another OL/DL before recruiting class is done.
