    "Texas early enrollee freshman linebacker De'Gabriel Floyd has not yet been medically cleared for contact during spring football while awaiting tests on lingering effects from a neck injury suffered in high school,....
    At this point, it's too early to determine the severity of Floyd's medical condition or how long he may be held out of contact...."

    Sources: Texas linebacker Floyd yet to be medically cleared

    From Inside Texas --

    "Brennan Eagles is starting to get people a little excited. Heading into the off-season we wrote they wanted to get his body operating optimally and whatever they've done it has worked. He's running better than ever, even though he's up to nearly 230 pounds. He's been working at Z which seems to suggest more playing time this season with Collin Johnson a fixture at X. Eagles has been taking advantage of Devin Duvernay taking the camp off to heal (it's a very minor injury that he played through last year)."

    Everybody still love rosey practice reports?

    From Inside Texas on JWhitt --

    "The first thing I heard was "Jordan is fast as [bleep]." For someone known for his quickness, build, and fluidity, that's encouraging. Expectations are he'll carry himself well in pads, but still, everyone wants to see it. He'll be hit early and often by defensive players anxious to test his mettle. Athleticism isn't in question, neither are his hands. Will he drop his shoulder and run it up the middle? We'll see."

    From Inside Texas on McCoy --

    "Bru McCoy was the first name mentioned. Sources have been high on he and Whittington since they arrived, now they just want to see how they respond to physicality. With Collin Johnson out for the spring, McCoy has been working at XWR (outside boundary receiver). There's still a good chance he plays HWR (slot) next season. All the same stuff to Whittington applies, even being fast despite being known for other strengths: size, fluidity, and quickness."

    The brother also trains WR Joshua Moore who is also supposed to be looking extremely fit as well. Moore has his chance right now with Jake not here yet, JWhitt at RB and McCoy working at the X while Collin Johnson rests.

    Something from TFB on the CBs

    " .... D’Shawn Jamison is taking reps with cornerbacks although I am told that he got a little time at nickel, as well.

    Right now your starters at cornerback are Cook and Boyce with Jalen Green being the guy some believe could threaten for a starting spot. It depends on who you to talk to though. I’ve heard some expect for Green, at some point before the season, to seize one of those spots and not let it go. Others have indicated that it will remain Boyce and Cook. I get the sense that the competition is between Boyce and Green as Cook seems to have earned the trust of the staff last year and through this past offseason.

    This is obviously a battle we will watch closely. Although Texas lost two starters at the position, they certainly don’t lack talent. Given the upside of both Green and Boyce, it’s a luxury to have guys of that caliber duking it out."

    I looked at the roster and saw Roach a t 290 and listed as a DL. Seems like he was listed at LB last week, probably an inadvertent holdover from last summer.

    This is the most optimistic I have been during spring football in a while. Position battles everywhere. Linemen who have redshirted. This is what championship football looks like

    Totally agree, really starting to feel this thing is moving. Feeling like 2001, 2002.

    To me, more like 2004 or perhaps even 2005. There are similarities. Let me add that it’s not going to take TH eight years to win his “first” NC.

    This years team reminds me a lot of 2003 and we need to remember that while the 2003 team won 10 games it struggled at times, got blown out in one game and absolutely failed to show up in another. But that team laid the foundation for the Rose Bowl run in 04 and the national championship in 05. Next year Texas will be replacing a crap ton of seniors just like that 03 team (they were replacing the Simms, Redding class) and I expect some struggles as young kids grow into their positions. Like 2003 I expect 10 wins but this team is not yet playoff or NC ready I think that comes in 2020 and 2021. I really like the growth we saw in season two in the team and in Herman. I wondered about him after first year but he seems to have gotten the team to buy in to his philosophy and culture. I am as excited to see next year's team as I have been in a decade and see what they can accomplish but lets tap the brakes on being a NC contender just yet.

    Agree totally, FWHORN. A bit of patience is in order - but patience doesn't seem to be a strong suit for fans! :smile1:
