Here's the latest from HD's JASON HIGDON, the most trusted source on UT recruiting, on Friday:
Things are all trending in the direction I have felt for a while now -- meaning the kids I feel good about I still feel good about --the kids that I feel could be split are still split. However, I did move one player "Above the Line," based off some new thoughts I have regarding his situation.
With the addition of Eric Cuffee bringing the class total to 14, I have 22 kids in as of this moment with five days to go until national signing day.
I caught up with Lil'Jordan Humphrey and he is very excited Charlie Strong, Brian Jean-Mary, Jay Norvell and maybe a few others will be making the in home visits with him this evening. They will also get a chance to watch him play in his basketball game tonight. LJ was sick last week and missed some practice time, so more than likely will not start the game tonight as a result.
The staff is hitting the ground running today, they will be all over the place checking on everyone they can as today and Saturday are it for in home visits.
There are only 6 days left in what will go down as the most climactic Texas recruiting cycle in the last 30 years - and maybe in the history of the program. Nearly half of the Longhorns' 2016 recruiting class remains unknown. Well, unless you're a member of HornsDigest.com...
