Charlie Strong's National Signing Day Press Conference!!!

"And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart."
Galatians 6:9

[Author's Note: BevoBeat has A LOT more here.]

THIS is why he needed another year:

  • Whole team joined in effort.
    • One recruit played a prank on Malik Jefferson by pretending to decommit
  • "We had 32 players take official visits here and we sat 24 of 'em."
  • "A lot of these student athletes, it's all about academics for them."
    • "The #1 thing for them is to get a degree."
  • A bunch of guys on offense are already on campus."
  • Shane Buchele has two sisters at O.U.
  • Kyle Porter - "Don't even call me until you're ready to commit."
  • Jordan Elliot - "6'3", 322!!!"
  • Chris Brown - "The thing I like about you is you have a chip on your shoulder."
  • "We know we had to put together a good class."
  • "Today was a big step forward for our program."
  • "We've just got to continue to work and continue to build it."
  • "I'm gonna ridin' ya until you tell me don't call me anymore."
  • Buchele: "He's going to have a chance to compete."
  • QB: "Is going to be a very competitive position."
Our Thoughts:
  • Heading into next season, the Longhorns had big holes to fill on Offensive line, Defensive Line, and Secondary; this class fills those needs.
  • In addition to filling those needs, this class built depth at almost every position group.
  • The one position group where depth is lacking is tight end; we still think Tyrone Swoopes fills the bill.
  • They're STACKED at the QB position.  Heard has three years of eligibility left and Buchele is on campus.  Sam Erhlinger is a year away.
  • We'd rather be where the Longhorns are than where either the Aggies or the Cowboys are.
