The coaching staff for Texas football couldn’t do much better during the weekend of Junior Day to bring some positive results on the recruiting trail.
What the Texas football program has ahead for spring camp 2019 was largely determined by the success the coaching staff found on the recruiting trail before National Signing Day commenced earlier this month. Spring camp is just about a month out for the actual drills to begin for the Texas football program.
Texas football is bringing in a double-digit number of early enrollees from the 2019 signing class. It will be great exposure for Texas football fans and the early enrollees to get some key reps in spring camp and the spring football game. Especially with some of the depth thinning at the skill positions thanks to departing seniors and the NCAA Transfer Portal, getting some of these incoming signees involved early is significant.
This will be one of the most pivotal off-seasons on the Forty Acres in the past decade. Texas football finished off the 2018 campaign on a high-note with an appearance in the Big 12 Championship Game and a New Year’s Six Bowl victory over the Georgia Bulldogs. Yet, that seems far in the past now with a ton of storylines emerging from the recruiting trail the past two months.

Here’s a look at the five thoughts, notes, and takeaways from the Texas Longhorns off-season after Junior Day this past weekend and heading into spring camp 2019.
