The offensive line class for the Texas Longhorns in the 2021 cycle is now down to two pledges with Friday’s decommitment from Jacksonville (Fla.) Bishop Kenny center Michael Myslinski.
The decommitment from the 6’2, 285-pounder becomes the most recent fallout from the uncertainty surrounding the job security of head coach Tom Herman, who is actually still employed on the Forty Acres despite the high-profile miss on Urban Meyer last weekend.
Turns out that type of thing is bad for recruiting.
Myslinski committed to Texas in early August, but his limited ties to the school couldn’t survive all the speculation about Herman’s future with Early Signing Day looming next week.
And so yet another (almost certain) miss along the offensive line hurts the future of the Longhorns in the trenches as position coach Herb Hand has failed to secure the top targets at the position and almost entirely missed on even the second and third and fourth and fifth and sixth targets.
That’s bad, too.
Offensive line recruiting in the 2021 cycle for Texas was bad, and it just got worse.
