No. 4 RB Bijan Robinson emerges as key Texas target

No. 4 RB Bijan Robinson emerges as key Texas target

After missing on the nation’s top running back, position coach Stan Drayton sorely needs to burnish his recruiting bona fides by landing Robinson. In late May, Galena Park North Shore running back Zach Evans dropped a bombshell on the burnt orange faithful, eliminating the Texas Longhorns from consideration with the release of his top five. Considering how many times Evans made it to the Forty Acres and the importance of landing a top prospect at the position in the 2019 recruiting class, the news from Evans was a huge blow. A little more than two weeks later, Tucson (Ariz.) Salpointe...

Are the Texas Longhorns 'authentic' national title contenders in 2019?

Tony Casillas posed an interesting question last week while co-hosting on SiriusXM's Big 12 channel.The former Dallas Cowboy and former Oklahoma All-American looked ahead to the coming football season and wondered if Texas was an "authentic" national title contender.Full disclosure: I was the guest on the receiving end of that question and the word choice stayed with me. This isn't the debate about Texas being back or if the Longhorns can beat Oklahoma in the Big 12.It's not even about Texas being worthy of those not-so-high College Football Playoff odds being emailed out, including 32/1 to...
