    Did Farrell leave his white cane in his room at the hotel?

    Who all is announcing on Saturday? Collins announcing between us and OU right? Anyone else we have a shot at?

    Rivals has Collins to OU - Hope Ketch is wrong...

    Rivals is not a credible predictor.

    Bijan is not frail.

    The chiseled Texas-bound back measured in at 5-10 ? and weighed 212 pounds and looked chiseled. Robinson had 30 ¾-inch arms and 9 ?-inch hands and Texas is getting an extremely well put-together back. (All American Bowl)

    So he has increased his weight by 8-10 lbs. and still looks to be extremely low body fat.

    247 Mike Roach doesnt think much of our chances here.

    The Fong thinks there is a good chance Collins ends up a 5-star
    He says us and ou are "recruiting him the hardest" and thinks Texas/ou/Bama have led at different times.
    They say Collins will OV to Bama in Jan- which is not good -- but he still has all of his in-homes left (I think)
    And both 247-Roach and TFB are still saying they think he’s leaning our way
    edit - the Alabama OV stuff corrected below

    Prince Dorbah measured 6'2, 215 at his all star game check in, which is slightly heavier than his listed weight

    Jones is thought of a great DFW recruiter (if so, names to watch are Camar Wheaton, JoJo Earle, Ishmael Ibraheem, Shemar Turner, Byrd & Blackshire and other Duncanville players, maybe QDavis)

    Here is the update from the Bama247 on Collins -- correcting some of the above about an OV

    From Hank South--More on Alfred Collins from an Alabama angle:
    Alfred Collins says he's still hearing from Alabama consistently. Talking to Brian Baker and Jeff Banks. Expect Nick Saban out to Bastrop next month at some point. Interesting note: his family is talking about making an unofficial visit out to Tuscaloosa in January (he already used his OV in September).

    ------------------------------

    Yet even more on Collins --
    Spiegelman(Rivals) flipped his pick on Collins to ou.
    Wiltfong is also at the event and hasn't changed his pick.

    He was the one that said he would visit on his own dime. I wonder if we can still get him here before Signing Day?

    Weird reaction. Why would an “uncommitted” prospect that has shown interest in Texas wearing Texas gear not be a “thing”? Regardless, he’s not signing here after seeing this IMO

    Roach tends to be conservative with his recruiting takes. Which often makes him late to the party, but also more accurate. In this case, he seems pretty convinced. Personally I thought Gibbs film was good. I guess we will soon know what Yurcich thinks of it.

    You are not the only one! I thought he would be excellent with Bijan in the backfield. I know Yurcich has a lot of things on the table right now, but I hope he makes Gibbs a priority.

    According to those who know, Ringo is committed, just unannounced. And it's not Texas.

    Standing next to Collins, Van looks like he could use some more sand in his pants. Hope we stomp da Yoots and get him back.

    Van Fillinger is only 17. He will grow some more, I bet.

    When he was 16 this summer .....

    Yeah, Van’s freakishly strong for his size. Collins makes everybody look small.

    Recall that one of our posters interacted with the AD (CDC), and the CDC responded that we had a quiet commitment. Hmmm.
