It may be time for the Texas Longhorns to show assistant director of player personnel Bryan Carrington the money.
According to a report for Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods, LSU is actively pursuing Carrington, who has quickly built a name for himself as an ace recruiting for the Longhorns.
Texas assistant director of player personnel Bryan Carrington is being actively pursued by LSU, according to a source close to the situation in Baton Rouge. Tom Herman loves Carrington. It will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.— Anwar Richardson (@AnwarRichardson) March 2, 2018
A key figure for recruits during on-campus visits, Carrington was temporarily promoted as Texas’ 10th assistant prior to Tom Herman hiring Herb Hand as the co-offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. However, despite Carrington not remaining as one of Texas’ 10 assistants after a brief stint on the recruiting trail, Tom Herman raved about Carrington’s importance on National Signing Day after Texas signed the nation’s No. 3-ranked class.
“Bryan does a fantastic job of connecting with players,” Herman said. “He’s young. He shares similar backgrounds to a lot of them. Grew up in Houston. He is passionate about the University of Texas. I think where Bryan comes into play is because of that connection, I think it adds a lot of validity to the things that we’re saying to the full-time recruiters. We’re saying it and we’re presenting information, then Bryan is saying, Yeah, man, that’s the real deal, that’s really how it is here.
Herman then added, “Bryan does a phenomenal job. I hope he sticks around for a long, long time.”
Carrington played a key role in the recruitment of players such as Moro Ojomo and Joseph Ossai, who gave Carrington a shoutout during his commitment video.
Bearing Carrington’s value in mind, it’s quite possible that Texas’ rebuttal to LSU’s interest is a significant pay raise.
Texas AD Chris Del Conte said he wasn’t going to lose Todd Orlando over money. I doubt Texas will lose Bryan Carrington solely over money, either.— Brian Davis (@BDavisAAS) March 2, 2018
