Recruits Talking Charlie Strong and Texas

Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns coaching staff are making a big impression with recruits from all across the country. Texas landed their 7th verbal commitment for the class of 2017 yesterday as Montrell Estell pulled the trigger.

Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas coaching staff have done a fantastic job of identifying top tier recruits in 2017 and 2018.  I caught up with a few to talk to about Coach Strong and the Texas program.

“I've learned that he's a coach that truly cares about his players,” Major Tennison said. “The best thing about the program is that it's on the rise and will surprise a lot of people next year.”
