Has Texas done enough to land 4-star safety Lewis Cine?

Has Texas done enough to land 4-star safety Lewis Cine?

Elite Cedar Hill Trinity Christian safety Lewis Cine recently made a visit to Austin. The Texas program prides itself on producing some of the best defensive backs to play the game at a high level. Maintaining the “DBU” tradition calls for landing the top high school prospects that thrive in the secondary. Tom Herman and company proved that they have what it takes to recruit top-notch talent on the backend of the defense last recruiting cycle when they snagged three of the nation’s top six safeties (No. 1 Caden Sterns, No. 3 B.J. Foster, and No. 6 DeMarvion Overshown). Could the...

True freshman S Caden Sterns already emerging as a star in Texas’ secondary

He’s just four games into his college career, but Caden Sterns is already leading the Longhorns to wins and drawing comparisons to one of the greatest to do it at Texas. “Hell of a football player. Hell of a football player.” Tom Herman’s Saturday evening sentiments regarding his true freshman safety Caden Sterns carry so much weight that he had to say it twice. Such praise for the Longhorns budding star was certainly warranted. Sterns’ role in Texas’ defensive backfield proved to be paramount in what amounted to a 31-16 upset victory over No. 17 TCU, which marked the Horns...

5 plays that changed the game in Texas’ 31-16 win over No. 17 TCU

Without this handful of key plays, Texas may be 2-2 (0-1) right now, as opposed to 3-1 (1-0). For the second time in as many weeks, Texas is enjoying a double-digit win over a ranked foe, and once again, a few key plays turned the tide in Texas’ favor. On Saturday, the Longhorns snapped a four-game skid against TCU with a 31-16 win over the No. 17-ranked Horned Frogs, but the final score could have quite easily favored Gary Patterson’s program had it not been for a handful of outcome-altering plays.

In Texas' previous game, Sterns had blocked a USC field goal, which Anthony Wheeler returned for a touchdown.

Late surge pushes Texas past TCU for monumental win

Last weekend wasn’t a fluke, as Tom Herman’s Longhorns team proved that it’s making important progress in finishing games. An opportunistic defense that forced four turnovers and an offense that made big plays in the last 20 minutes, including a long, game-clinching drive, propelled the Texas Longhorns past the No. 17-ranked TCU Horned Frogs, 31-16, in front of another raucous crowd at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
