– Team Note | Quarterback: While the reps have first team reps were being split last week, I am told to expect sophomore QB Shane Buechele to get the start tonight.
Both quarterbacks are ready so obviously this could change at any point but as of last night, that’s the information I have. – (Super K)
– Jaylen Waddle: Texas top WR target, Jaylen Waddle let me know last night that he will visit Alabama this upcoming weekend. More and more it’s looking like Alabama is the biggest threat to Texas.
I’m told Florida State isn’t nearly as big of a threat as they may have once appeared. I’m also told that TAMU isn’t likely to land Waddle. I continue to hear that Alabama along with Oregon are spots to keep an eye on. – (Super K)
– DeShon Elliott: One of Texas’ starting safeties in DeShon Elliott sent out a tweet yesterday that seemed to worry some Texas fans.

His location says Miami, FL. I’ve had multiple fans ask me what the deal is.
I’ve checked with source and I am told he is in fact with the team in Iowa. I don’t know what to make of the tweet but I am confident that Elliott is with the team in Iowa and will be on the field tonight. – (Andrew)
– Joshua Landry: With the departure of Chris Daniels, Texas may need to bump their high school DT numbers up a bit. A guy whose name you’ve heard before is Lamar’s (Houston), Joshua Landry. Will Baizer had a chance to see Landry live in action last week at the same game where coach Herman and some his staff attended. Baizer came away impressed.
We will have his notes on Landry up tomorrow. But for now, I want to note that there had long been talk that Landry, a Baylor commit, had some issues in the classroom, I am told that is not the case. As a policy, we do not address players’ academic issues but in this rare case I will just to say that it does appear Landry is on his way to qualifying.
Again, more on this later. – (Super K & Will Baizer)
