– Satellite Camps: In case you missed the tweet last night…
I am told that #Texas will do satellite camps this summer. More details in tomorrow's Open Post.

We have been able to confirm that Texas will do satellite camps in the state of Texas. We have not confirmed yet whether any camps will be held outside of Texas.
In talking to a Florida source we are also told that Texas will hold their satellite camps with the Florida Gators. As of now we’ve been told that the Texas – Florida camp will be held in Houston and Dallas. Since Texas is holding their camps with Florida we would surmise that Texas will also attend camps hosted by Florida in Florida. However, given how rigorously coach Strong is recruiting the state of Texas, that is not a certainty until we are able to confirm it. – (Super K)
– Coaches on the Road: The Texas have been on the road for the last week and are continuing to hit the road hard. Coaches like Jeff Traylor and Brick Haley are out recruiting in the places where they have been for year, for Traylor that is East Texas and for Haley that is Louisiana. The staff was only in Texas last week but some of them have migrated out of the state this week. One of those is coaches is LB coach Brian Jean-Mary.
After checking in with Plano East (TX) LB Anthony Hines (the same day as TAMU DC John Chavis did, wonder if BJM and Chavis shared some conversation that afternoon), Jean-Mary headed East for Florida. Yesterday Jean-Mary was at IMG Academy to see 5-star LB Dylan Moses and the other stud recruits out at IMG. He was also at Lakeland HS to see RB AJ Davis, who was offered by Texas yesterday afternoon. It seems like Davis has some serious interest in the Longhorns and seems open to playing outside of the state of Florida, which is never a bad sign for an out of state target. – (Andrew)
– Trestan Ebner: Another guy who is on the radar is the Texas staff is fomer SMU commit Henderson (TX) WR Trestan Ebner who has continued to see him stock rise after decommitting from the Mustangs. Right now TCU seems to be the team to beat for the speeder WR. Ebner let me know last night that Texas TE coach Jeff Traylor will be by to see him today and thinks the Longhorns will eventually offer after looking at him more. Ebner will be in Austin next week for the state track meet and hopes to stop by the football facilities for a visit after the meet. He could be a name to watch down the line, depending on how things go with other WR targets. – (Andrew)
