Garrett Gilbert and Paden Kelley won't be the only former Lake Travis Cavaliers re-uniting on the Texas campus in the fall. Gilbert's long-time friend and favorite target, receiver Cade McCrary, will be an invited and preferred walk-on at Texas. McCrary, of course, has connections to Texas football, as he played an important role in introducing Gilbert to the Longhorns through his father, Hardee, the former defensive ends coach and recruiting coordinator for Texas.
My take: While McCrary is an excellent high school receiver, with more than 1,700 yards and 24 touchdowns last season, I would classify him as a product of the two systems in which he played and his close connection with one of the top quarterbacks in the country. Considering the incredible receiving depth in the state and the depth on the team or committed to play for the Longhorns, I just don't see McCrary seeing the field for the Longhorns unless the coaches really strike out on several evaluations.
