The aftermath from the Made In Texas weekend that included a packed Bevo Blvd., a well-attended spring game, and a Ludacris concert is slowly starting to rise up. Priority guys know they are priorities, and you’ll begin to see official visitors head to Austin starting on May 3rd for UT’s first OV weekend.

We start in the Houston area with a linebacker who tracks and smacks, then head west to see the nation’s top corner and one of the best OL from Arizona, back to east Texas for a uber-athletic corner with lock down traits, and finish with UT’s top QB on its 2021 big board in this edition of the Recruiting Notebook.
Our friend, quarterback trainer Brad Wilson Stanfield, took stock of the Houston talent at his position of expertise and offered his thoughts.
In addition, I caught up with priority targets Alfred Collins and Chad Lindberg.
