Team Quick-Hitters | Monday, June 22nd
– Super K
***For the first time in a while, the team will begin workouts today. This will be primarily weight lifting and running.
***I will say that Texas is not only getting a head start on a lot of other programs, but they also had a lot more players in Austin working out privately than other teams. So, if there is a correlation between training and on-field success, Texas should get a bump.
***They’ll continue coaching station walkthroughs via Zoom meetings.
***It is sounding more and more like BJ Foster may move down to LB. I’m always a bit hesitant to go full in on that because I’ve heard so many times before. But if they’re trying to get all this athleticism on the field, it would make sense. Imagining guys like Overshown and Foster at the second level with the speed on the back end…scary.
***Again, won’t begin actually face to face walkthroughs till mid-July.
***I did hear more of the names who are being isolated for corona. I’ve been asked not to divulge the names so I won’t. But I was told that once you’ve gone through your two-week quarantine, you won’t be required to again for the remainder of the year. In other words, it’s a good thing that many of Texas’ higher profile players are doing this now. For those who are sick, we wish them a speedy recovery.
Name to Know | Albert Regis
– CJ Vogel
Texas extended an offer to 2021 La Porte defensive lineman Albert Regis on Friday. I caught up with him to get his thoughts on the offer and what his recruitment entails.
Regis told me he had been in contact with defensive line coach Mark Hagen for several weeks prior to the offer, so a relationship has been in the works for some time prior to the offer.
While Regis has yet to be to campus before, he said there is hope he will be able to make the trip once the quarantine period dies down a bit.
Minnesota, Baylor and recently Arkansas have been in the hunt for Regis’s pledge so far, though he tells me he has “no leaders at all.” This allows Texas a chance to make a big impact in his recruitment now that their hat is officially in the ring.
There is no timetable set for a commitment either for Regis, who told me he will make his decision “whenever the time is right” for him and his family.
If you haven’t yet, make sure to watch Regis’s Hudl. Keep in mind he is being recruited as a interior defensive lineman, yet for the first 4:30 of his film, all he’s doing is catching TDs. Pretty impressive stuff no doubt.
