James Brockermeyer Talks Final Four
– Andrew King

Yesterday All Saints Episcopal (TX) center James Brockermeyer released his final four schools.

None of these schools came as a major surprise. and James’ final four lines up with his brother, 5-star tackle Tommy Brockermeyer’s Top 5. I had the chance to talk with James about each school in his Final four.

Alabama: “They’ve dominated college football for the last decade and always churn out Olinemen into the league. They’ve got the greatest coach of all time there and have an awesome culture.”

Auburn: “We were at the Iron Bowl and it was arguably the most exciting atmosphere I’ve ever seen before. The people there are awesome and it’s a real tight community. They also send a good amount of people to the NFL and win a lot of games.

LSU: “The atmosphere there on gameday is incredible. They had all of their linemen go to the NFL this year which shows how good Coach Cregg is. Coach O would be an awesome guy to play for and they’re consistent at winning.”

Texas: “Texas has an awesome history along with great tradition. It’s also the closest school to home and I could have a lot of my friends and family come watch me play. My brother goes there and if me and Tommy went there it would be cool to have 3 brothers on the same team.”

Both Brockermeyer brothers have Texas, LSU, Alabama, and Auburn in their top group. The only difference is that Tommy also has Clemson included. The Tigers seemed to fall out of the race for the Brockermeyer’s after deciding not to offer James.

For awhile it looked like it was going to be Texas vs Alabama-Clemson. Now it seems more and more like a battle between Tom Herman and Nick Saban for the pair of Longhorn legacies. When I asked James if the plan is for him and Tommy to play together in college he told me, “It’s not 100% but it’s more likely to happen than not.” Which is the reason I don’t believe Clemson is a factor, unless they offer James.

I talked about this in my weekend mailbox, but the 2020 season is going to be the biggest thing that could either make or break Texas in these recruitments.

Updates | Team Meeting, Fatheree & New Offer
– Super K

**The team will meet today via zoom ahead of their upcoming return that should be happening later this month.

***Had been told that 2021 OT, Reuben Fatheree was set to select a school this week. He wound up committing to Texas A&M.

***This past weekend, Texas offered 2021 DB, Devin Lemear (Manor)…

Back on May 21st, I mentioned Lemear as a guy to watch (here), saying:

Obviously the two big in-state safety targets are now Mukuba and Coffey. I’ve mentioned that I believe Mukuba is trending Clemson with Texas trying to catch up. I’ll have more on Coffey later. In general though, I feel better about Texas’ chances there. In-state DB and former TCU commit, Devin Lemear (Manor) also tells me he’s beginning to hear from coach Ash and the Texas staff. So, he’s another one to watch.

So, again, while this offer may seem out of the blue, it certainly is not. Lemear was once a TCU commit and has strong family ties there. He’s also being heavily recruited by Baylor. But he’s close to Jahdae Barron and I could see that really help Texas. He’s excited about the offer.

Texas fans will also want to pay attention here 🙂

Texas Lands Another Aussie Punter In Isaac Pearson
– Andrew King

Texas has dipped into Australia for another punter. ProKick Australia punter Isaac Pearson is the newest commit in the 2021 class.

Texas has looked to ProKick Australia for their last two punters. First it was Michael Dickson, who turned out to be a star at Texas and is now in the NFL. Then it was Dickson’s cousin, and current Texas punter Ryan Bujcevski.

The ProKick Australia to Texas pipeline continues with Pearson. And while this isn’t a flashy addition, everyone should remember how valuable having a punter like Michael Dickson was. Bujcevski is entering his junior season, so expect Pearson to take over in 2022. Unless Bujcevski has an incredible season and leaves as a junior like Dickson did.
