Urban Meyer gets it. He understands the problems underlying Tom Herman’s Texas Longhorns.

The problem lies in developing NFL talent, despite Texas’ top-ranked recruiting classes.

“[The Longhorns] haven’t had many players drafted,” Meyer said on Fox. “That’s fine. The average viewer can say, ‘OK, that’s the what.’ But let’s dig deep, lift up the hood and say why — it’s evaluation process and it’s development of the player. If the NFL Draft doesn’t start showing more Texas Longhorn players every spring, it’s going to be the same old story.”

Indeed.

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • Texas women’s basketball picked up a big 2021 recruit in Kyndall Hunter out of Cypress Creek, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “The 5-7 Hunter is rated by espnW HoopGurlz as the No. 24 prospect in the 2021 recruiting cycle. She is the class’ seventh-best point guard. Hunter joins a Class of 2021 at Texas that already includes the No. 6 (Aaliyah Moore) and No. 10 (Rori Harmon) recruits in the country. Even before Hunter’s commitment, espnW regarded UT’s recruiting class as the nation’s fourth-best.”
