Open Post | Wednesday, September 20th

Cam Rising: Spoke with a source close to Texas QB commit, Cam Rising (Newbury Park, CA) and I have been told that Rising will take an official visit to Arizona State this weekend.

This shouldn’t be a cause for concern though. Source also said that Rising is fully locked in to Texas and is, in fact recruiting for Texas. As a quarterback, I’ll give you three guesses who his number one target is but you’ll only need one and it reminds with Raylen Maddle.

Don’t be surprised to see Rising take a few more visits but again, this appears to be more like we are seeing with guys like Ayodele and a few other commits who just want to enjoy the process. – (Super K)

Maureese Wren: As I mentioned yesterday, Texas has begun taking some interesting in 6’3 220 lb Arkansas ATH commit, Maureese Wren (Mesquite, TX). The Horns are looking at Wren as a possible linebacker offer.

Yesterday Wren spoke with player personnel director, Derek Chang. Wren and Chang spoke about the recruiting process and Texas’ offer process. Wren also tells me that Texas plans to have coach Todd Orlando get out to a game in the next week to see Wren in person. – (Super K)

Team Note | QB Reps: We know the official position coming out of the program is that Shane and Sam are splitting first team reps with more than half being taken by Shane.

Speaking to a source, I’m told that Sam is actually taking more of the first team reps right now. Now, this could simply be an indication that Shane is still not taking as many total reps as Sam but it definitely sounds like the staff is trying to make sure both quarterbacks are getting first team looks.

As such, whether Shane is healthy or not, it’s probably anyone’s guess who starts against Iowa State. – (Andrew)

Badara Traore: As expected, Texas is going to look at the JUCO ranks for some help on the offensive line. In case you missed it, Texas offered JUCO OT, Badara Traore (ASA College). Hope to have more with him later.
