Daily Dose: Offensive Offer Possibilities

Welcome to the Daily Dose, a daily collection of random musings surrounding Longhorns athletics and recruiting.

In today’s edition I’ll take a look at five offensive players Texas should strongly consider offering.

Smith has some really nice offers right now – Oklahoma, Arizona State, Houston, Maryland – but I think he’s going to blow up this fall, which is why I think it would be wise for UT to offer before many others do.

He’s a quarterback for his high school but projects as a wide receiver in college.

One thing I’m thinking here in regards to why Texas hasn’t offered this 6-foot-2, 180-pound dual-threat is because UT can afford to be picky at WR with two already committed in 2016. And there are some big names still on its board that are strongly considering UT.

Regardless, Smith is a player that will see his stock soar this fall.

It’s probably too late for the Longhorns to factor into Hurts’ recruitment, but this is a player I always thought UT should offer so I’ll throw him in on this.

I’ve seen him at a couple of camps and, boy, did I come away impressed. The 6-foot-2, 208 dual-threat can really move, and throws a tight ball on the run.

He’s accumulated quite the offers list including, Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Arizona, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, Oregon State, SMU, and West Virginia, among others.

Texas has the quarterback it wants in 2016 in Shane Buechele but I’d at least put feelers out with Hurts to see where his head is at, and jump in the mix if he’s at all interested. He did participate in last year’s Elite QB Academy at UT.

A little perplexed as to why the Longhorns haven’t offered the former Aggies commitment already. He’s one of the very best receivers in the country – 53 receptions for 1,105 yards and 13 TDs as a junior - with an offers list to prove it.

Cleveland holds offers from Alabama, Baylor, Florida, Houston, LSU, TCU, Texas A&M, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisville, and Mississippi State.

Texas’ Brick Haley did visit Cleveland’s high school on May 20, so maybe the staff is warming up to the idea.

Chalk is strongly committed to Clemson for a variety of reasons. He really likes everything about the rising ACC power.

However he’s told HD in the past that the Longhorns are one of the few schools he’d like to get to know more about, and said he’d try to visit at some point.

He’s very familiar with Texas’ tight ends coach Jeff Traylor, which should help. UT WR coach Jay Norvell visited him in late April.

Given the need for a TE in 2016, and perhaps two, I’d offer him now and hope that entices him to get to campus really soon.

In addition to Clemson, Chalk has offers from Oklahoma, Alabama, Arizona State, Duke, Ole Miss, SMU, Texas A&M and Texas Tech.

I like the idea of offering Boateng for a few reasons, the first being he’s plenty talented enough.

On top of that he’s a high character kid that happens to go to the same high school as 2016 QB commitment Shane Buechele. That relationship would be hard to beat at the next level.

Ole Miss is the favorite right now out of the 20-plus offers he has. But I think he’d strongly consider the Longhorns if they put an offer on the table.
