Trevon Randle Commits to LSU ($)

11

Would not expect him to make it in for the Texas Junior Day at the end of the month. Randle is a linebacker from League City Clear Springs who played both ways as a junior, spending time at linebacker and running back and expressing that he wanted to continue doing the same thing in college. Not entirely likely that will happen. At the linebacker position, Randle draws comparisons to Aaron Benson because of their similar size and speed -- undersized for a linebacker, but possessing excellent speed. Far from a lock for an offer, Randle was probably at the top of the Texas board for outside, "spread" linebackers as the best in the class from that mold. The takeaway from this is that the Longhorns are going to have to re-think their strategy with the Junior Days because Randle represents the third player to commit to another school before visiting Texas for a Junior Day, joining Brandon Williams and Kolby Griffin. Considering the impact that a visit to Austin and a possible invitation into Mack Brown's office to receive an offer clearly makes, three players now represent a growing and disturbing trend. It's impossible to say definitively without more information, but the best guess here is that opposing coaches are using a second Junior Day invite to negatively recruit against Texas by telling these players they won't receiver an offer and/or aren't valued by Texas. Similarly, it's impossible to say definitively whether the kids are believing that, but the results speak for themselves. The bottom line is that Texas can't afford to have kids that would have received offers commit to other schools without visiting -- those players represent major missed opportunities. I'm not sure that the solution is officially offering players earlier or inviting some of the top players to the second Junior Day, but Mack Brown needs to find some way to mitigate the negative recruiting currently being used against Texas.
