By the end of the weekend, more than 90 Texas Longhorns targets will have visited the Forty Acres as part of Tom Herman’s first junior days in Austin. Tremendously stacked in both size and talent, Herman and the ‘Horns will have an opportunity to leave a lasting impression on many of the state and nation’s top prospects in hopes of kickstarting a critical 2018 class.
This 2018 recruiting class WILL be the best in the nation, Coach Herman and staff is making this the best program in the nation. GET IN NOW!— Sam Ehlinger (@sehlinger3) February 25, 2017
