WR Reggie Hemphill (Manvel, Texas)
At one point Hemphill was the face of Texas' 2016 recruiting class. Heck, he was the only face in the class period.
When Charlie Strong arrived he told Hemphill that he was going to hold off on the commitment for the time being until he and the new staff could do their own evaluations. Hemphill fully understood.
But that was a couple of months ago and the staff has slow-played things with Hemphill ever since. He told LonghornDigest on Friday that he had yet to hear from the staff. Expect that to change very soon.
It might not lead to an offer just yet, but it would be a start in the right direction. Right now Texas A&M is considered the leader for the former UT commitment.
RB Kameron Martin (Port Arthur, Texas/Memorial)
Martin, without blatantly saying it is begging for a Longhorns offer.
This is a player who grew up a Texas fan, with Longhorns stuff all over his room, and, for a lack of a better word, idolizes former UT RB and Memorial alum Jamaal Charles.
Martin said he is starting to get frustrated with not having an offer. I'm not putting him on this list because I believe UT should cater to what he is saying. But he could commit if it happens, and would be a great first-commitment for the class. He's seemingly got connections to everyone and his liked by most all his peers. It could be a worthwhile move.
S Deontay Anderson (Manvel, Texas)
Like Hemphill, Anderson also had an offer from Mack Brown but was told the staff would have to further evaluate him before making a decision.
Anderson has yet to hear from Texas' staff, which he understood to the fullest. But he would like to hear from them soon. He does not have any offers right now.
RB Ja'Ron Wilson (Euless, Texas/Trinity)
Wilson is going to be one of the top running backs in the state, if not the country, when it's all said and done. Might as well jump on the bandwagon early.
All he did last season was rush a team-leading 168 yards for 1,343 yards and a team-leading 21 touchdowns in a very competitive district.
Paving the way for him for most of those yards was 2015 Texas commitment Patrick Vahe. So the Longhorns could use him to help recruit Wilson.
