a CB in for S Devin Lemear (Manor) to Texas (from Nick Harris)
Devin Lemear, Manor, Safety
Hard to see us going for both, since we are supposed to be in good shape with Coffey (commit at any time). And we already have Bowman (unless we are already planning on putting him on offense, which is possible. But he has not said that)
A move for Bowman from S to WR is too easy, logical and attractive to forego if Texas gets loaded at safety. Has he been assigned a position yet?
Odd, 247 doesn't even show we have offered him.
TFB been suggesting we have two more silents
with the same last name?
Sounds more like 2 DBs
late yesterday 247 was showing Texas offer to Lemear
CB Omarion Cooper
this one of the cooler ones I have seen
I had to look up their hometowns ... both from North Texas, that is nice to see
Could be a nice birthday present for me!
I think it will be.
Happy Birthday (in case I forget)(which I will)
WR Michael Jackson to USC
6'8 OL Tristan Bounds to Michigan
Some more on Pearson the Punter
It's kind of long so in a spoiler
Isaac Pearson woke up beaming.
Pearson, 22, had once been headed on a different path. But since a change of plans, he’d been dreaming of this. Now, it had actually happened.
The Australian punter, out of the heralded Prokick Australia program, pulled on a burnt orange long-sleeved shirt and a three-year-old black ball cap with a Horns logo.
The night before, he’d announced his commitment to Texas, becoming the 11th member of the 2021 class.
“Never did I think I’d actually land at Texas,” Pearson said last week during a Zoom call from his family’s home in Newcastle, New South Wales. “But the stars aligned and here we are.”
It wasn’t initially clear he’d ever have the chance to play for the Longhorns himself, though. He started out training with Prokick once every three or four months, flying south for a weekend from Newcastle to Melbourne. But last year, he moved to Melbourne to begin training full time.
In a typical week, Pearson participated in eight training sessions, including four conditioning periods that would start at 5:30 a.m. and four punting periods that lasted two or three hours. Dave Tuinauvai, founder and head of performance of Conquest Athletic Performance, served as Pearson’s strength and conditioning coach.

Entering 2020, though, Pearson had yet to hear from any colleges. At Prokick, communication between colleges and players is strictly filtered through Prokick coaches. Pearson believed in Prokick’s track record and that he’d land with a school eventually.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit Australia, Pearson rejoined his family in Newcastle. While home, between February and March, Pearson said, the Longhorns made initial contact.
“My coaches sent film to wherever. I don’t really know,” Pearson said. “It just happened that the first team that contacted me was the Longhorns. … It was sort of kept on the downlow, I’m not really sure how the whole recruiting process works over in the States. But here it’s all kept pretty quiet.”
Special teams coordinator Jay Boulware and special teams quality control staffer Casey Horny directed the recruiting charge. After conversations with them, Pearson received an offer. He will join Bujcevski, who missed four games because of a broken clavicle last year, as the second scholarship punter on roster.
#6 CB nationally and #1 in state per the 247
Gabe Brooks thinks we still have a chance on WR Theo Knox
It doesnt feel that way but we will see
This past week, the 5-foot-10, 167-pound Knox named a top seven list that featured Alabama, Baylor, Georgia, Louisville, Mississippi State, Tennessee, and Texas. Of that top seven, Mississippi State and Texas are the top contenders for Knox, who owns elite speed with a verified 4.42 in the 40 and a blistering 10.40 in the 100 meters. Both of those times, along with a stellar 21.03 in the 200, come from the spring of 2019.
IMO Conner looks pretty good in the top 2 clips
Looks good, though I think Adeleye is overrated
Adeleye looks like he's got plenty of competition in Texas lol
On a level playing ground, Texas wins hands down. But $EC? Let us hope Texas still wins.
I prefer to look at that as Conner performing well
He shows good agility and quickness, IMO
