Open Post | Weekend, September 22nd – 24th

Anthony Cook: I spoke with a source regarding a commitment timeline for 2018 DB, Anthony Cook (Houston, TX).

Cook, who is down to Ohio State, Texas and LSU, was expected to commit in a little over a week (early October). However, I have been told that the date has been pushed back to October 3oth.

That change appears to be related to Cook’s interest in Texas. I was told that Cook is, “waiting to see how some more games play out”. It sounds like Cook wants to find out how Texas will perform against teams like Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

By the time October 30th rolls around, Cook will have seen Texas take on Iowa State, Kansas State and again, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. That should give him a good idea of how Texas is progressing.

I don’t know exactly what Cook is looking for but one would imagine it’s less about the wins and more about seeing the same type of growth we’ve seen from the Texas team each week since the Maryland game. – (Super K)

Max Wright: Last night Tom Herman flew his a helicopter into Houston to see visit some of the top recruits in the city.

One of Herman’s stops was to see one of the top defensive linemen in the state and current TAMU commit, Max Wright.

I spoke with a source about whether Max Wright was a real possibility for Texas and was told that there is a very good chance he will visit. While Wright has said publicly that his commitment to TAMU is more about TAMU than it is about the coaching staff, talk of a visit by someone who had been recruiting so vigorously for TAMU, makes it pretty obvious than he isn’t immune to the instability at TAMU.

This will be one to watch. Sources on the Texas side tell me that the staff really like Wright and would love to have him in this class. – (Super K)

– Coaches On The Road: The Texas staff will be back on the road tonight. Tom Herman will be at Houston Lamar tonight to see Anthony Cook, D’Shawn Jamsion, and Texas commit Al’Vonte Woodard. Another guy they’ll see if Conroe Oak Ridge DE Joseph Ossai and ’19 OT Tyler Johnson. – (Andrew)

– Maureese Wren: As Super K was the first to mention this week, Texas is evaluating Mesquite Horn (TX) ATH Maureese Wren. He decommitted from Arkansas this morning.

He is an interesting prospect, as he was committed to Arkansas as a WR, but Texas likes him at LB and will check him out live soon. I plan to speak with him soon… – (Andrew)
