Texas wanted to say they were back but the recruiting was lagging behind. That was until the month of July rolled around. Texas has been on a recruiting tear in the last month and currently now have the 16th ranked class on 247Sports.
The latest was the 20th overall player in running back Bijan Robinson. The talented five star was a major get for Tom Herman and company as he will likely be a star early. Here is a list of other players committed in the last month,
- Four star top 100 player DT Vernon Broughton
- Four star top 125 player OLB Prince Dorbah
- Three star SDE Van Fillinger
- Three star ATH Jaden Hullaby
five players in a month is always a great grab. But Three players in the top 150 in a month is what can shape a recruiting class. Texas has all of the expectations of being a real playoff threat this season so a strong class is needed to prove that they belong.
Tom Herman still deserves the credit for cleaning up the Charlie Strong mess. In a few years he turned the Longhorns from a laughing stock to a true contender. Oklahoma and LSU still stand in their way in 2019, however this is a team that could be in the playoff mix come November. The real issue still standing in their way is consistency. Once they can get past the upset losses to Maryland and other middle of the road teams, Texas will be a lethal threat yearly.
