    Here is the IT(Boyd & Wells) write-up on Dunston --

    How he fits at Texas: Dunson has such exceptional ball skills that it's easy to wonder if offense or defense is the right call. What seems to be the clinching factor is that he's 6-2/175 or so with real quickness (4.22 shuttle) that he translates to sticking tight on receivers in man coverage on film. Lots of receivers out there who can get open and win balls in the air, not as many guys who can do that at 6-foot-2 with their backs turned to the ball. Dunson is a great guy to stash in the program as cornerback in hopes that he'll be able to play press-man and hold up without needing a safety over the top. -- Ian Boyd

    Coach says: Strengths - Has great height and frame for the position. Long arms. Has good straight line acceleration and above average straight line speed. Above average explosiveness with a good vertical. Shows good change of direction most of the time. Judges the ball well in the air and catches naturally away from his body. Productive as a wide receiver and as a CB. A high football IQ is evident on tape as he translates his WR experience into anticipation as a DB. A wiling and physical player at the line of scrimmage. Looks very natural in press or off man coverage. Mirror steps are great and seems to side-step, accelerate and decelerate pretty well in phase with the receiver. Fights through the receiver for the ball and generally seems to have good timing. Have a hard time finding any opponent tape that makes him look bad. Areas for improvement / Concern - Needs time to add bulk. Some plays look like he’s watching more than playing when the ball isn’t straight to his side. Does not look nearly as comfortable or polished in zone coverage. Does not show a lot of form tackling and most tackles appear to be of either the "Todd-Orlando-missile" variety or the “drape-myself-across-the-ball-carrier-and-have-him-drag-me” type. A few where he exposes his neck. Have to question the level of competition. Not much (if any) tape against bigger wide receivers.

    How this affects Texas: Texas wants another corner in 2020. When Ethan Pouncey decided to play football with his brother, former UT WR Jordan Pouncey, that left a void in the 2020 class. Former CB coach Jason Washington wasted little time in finding his potential replacement. Fast forward and the four-star and former FSU pledge will take his OV to Austin next weekend (1/24-25). Fellow Georgia native Kenyatta Watson II will be his host. He reminds me of former Newton four-star, A&M corner Roney Elam; long, good hips, and some dog to his game. I think he's the top corner left on the board and wouldn't be surprised with a pledge next weekend if all goes well.

    Sounds like another Rakestraw except the latter has played against some of the nation's best and dominated and has proven speed also.

    Getting both would be peachy.

    He doesn't have a choice, he is flunking out. Likely will have to go Juco to get his grades in order.

    Dead period ended last night
    Whatever coaches we have will start hitting the road today.

    Also, the silver lining is that the lack of a full complement of coaches means Bryan Carrington will also be on the road again

    Send him to Collins’ house before Aranda gets there!

    The Baylor mods dont think Collins is all that thrilled with the Aranda hire.

    Princely too is likely not that pleased with Baylor/Aranda
    He has openly criticized LSU in the past for the way they pulled offers from some of his friends

    On the road again --

    Carrington to Aledo
    Valai in Dallas & Cedar Hill, probably Duncanville & South Oak Cliff/Lancaster
    Coleman to Everman (2021 Juan Davis) & Skyline (2021 Quay Davis)
    Someone to the Brockermeyers (breathe)

    Drayton was in FW at Nolan today. Perhaps also at AllSaints for Brockermeyers.

    After all the talk about CB Isaiah Dunson, Texas 247 now thinks we are "moving in a different direction"

    Maybe this means good news on Rakestraw?
    It is key we keep the Duncanville pipeline flowing, they have a great looking 2021 DL class

    I prefer Rakestraw, but Dunson would be nice also. I think Texas needs both this class.

    Roach has Dunson CB to Miami. Surely Valai and Texas could beat them?

    I'm pretty sure Texas will only take one CB to finish off this class. I'm pretty sure we will stop at 20 and use the rest for next year. I think we are going to take upwards of 28 guys in the next class. I think we will have about 5 guys leave early for the NFL draft.

    That would leave 33 openings, no? We need more tall CB who can run well.
