    Johnson jumps to the top of the list of "guys with immediate eligibility not named Demas" for the highest rated uncommitted recruit in the portal. I thought he would be good for us.

    It would be disappointing if he was one of a small number of highly rated offensive linemen who didn't pan out.

    I call it very troubling because he is one among very many who haven't panned out in the last 12+ years. I truly hope Flood is the man to stem the tide.

    The last OL recruiting class seems to believe in him.

    The written comments from Tope as he graduated last year.
    What an amazing guy,” Imade wrote of Flood. “What an incredible teacher and motivator. Arguably the greatest offensive line coach in America. … I have developed more in a calendar year than my entire career on the 40. Coach Flood coaches you in a way that puts you in the best position for success personally, and ultimately as a unit. We even have our linemen growing. So for Coach Flood to leave his situation at his previous school to come and rebuild Texas as it should be, it speaks to him as a coach and his character as a human.“

    He had similar comments about Sark
    Coach Sark is the guy,” Imade wrote. “I believe it with all my heart. People go through growing pains in life, and this season was just one example and how close we are. “

    And this is a guy who played for Charlie and Herman…

    Herb Hand didn't have much to work with.

    Two things that basically cratered our OL from about 2007-2021:
    1. Mac McWhorter riding the success of one recruiting class and never repeating it.
    2. Wickline's lawsuit-plagued hire and inability to nab recruits because of the negative recruiting other schools used against us.

    Driver 8 Maybe

    For his 14th year of eligibility
    It's easier to say than "Demostchillest"

    Word has it that Joshua Moore never enrolled at SMU and isn't planning to for 2022-23.

    Prairie View or UH is probably a better fit.
