6’1” 210 bowling ball running back from Trinity just willed them to a win over Allen.   460 yards, and six touchdowns.
 

5 offers.  None of them North Texas.  
 

A crying shame because this kid is a stone cold baller.

Idk why this board is obsessed with making “why didn’t we offer?!” posts any time a Texas kid has a great game. 
 

Maybe they don’t project him well to college? Staff has had a great eye for RB talent lately. Maybe the kid flat out told them don’t waste their time? Point is, you don’t know the situation so coming here to passive aggressively complain is getting old  

 

I watched him run THROUGH the defense of one of premier teams in Texas high school. If that doesn’t “project well to college” then I don’t know what the hell does.  
 

And perhaps we wouldn’t “passive aggressively” ask these questions if we didn’t see kids who are proven winners seemingly overlooked by our staff repeatedly.  
 

Or do you want to argue that what we are doing currently is working just fine?

Are we arguing about recruiting? Because I think they’ve earned the benefit of the doubt in that department. Back to back to back top 5 classes in the conference. And in the RB room specifically? They’re so deep they can’t even play every player that deserves to be in the field. 
 

So yeah, I’d argue that section of the program is working fine.

This Is Fine GIF

When we have limited number of scholarships each year and we have a stud RS Freshman returning along with two other very good freshman and Siggers returning and Jackson coming on board while our defense is in a state of shambles, your concern is a RB from Trinity?

No, my concern is a motherload of talent in our back yard that seems to never get attention from our staff.

 

A running back from Trinity is just the most recent example.

I guess these schools that would curb stomp us are wrong? Maybe he wants to stay close to home. I'm with Emmitt on this one. Its not complaining. Its common sense. Its okay to aim higher.

We did. We signed Jackson that is rated higher. 

For the record, Ollie Gordon is class of 2022. Still plenty of time to offer. Most of the time when we land guys who have P5 offers, we get them after those offers. Not by being their first offer.

I am assuming that our coaching staff qualifies who they offer scholarship too, and if a player says he has no interest in North Texas then he doesn't get an offer. To say that we should offer a scholarship to every player on the DMN area top 100 seems silly. When I went thru fraternity rush at UNT in the early 60's their was one who made an offer to everyone who signed up for rush sight unseen. We don't want to be those guys.

Euless Trinity's junior running back Ollie Gordon had one of the best single game performances in Texas high school football history. The three-star tailback finished the night with 49 carries for 451 yards and six touchdowns in a 49-45 upset win over No. 12 Allen to advance to the 6A Division 1 quarterfinals. - CBS Sports

Ollie, who is class of 22, is now up to 10 offers reported in the past couple hours. I guess the performance that was so obvious to Emmitt on Friday night was also obvious to just about every P5 recruiter in the nation.

I think it would probably be a waste of resources pursuing him.

He picked up a couple today but Emmitt said he only had 5 because he wasn’t viewing the complete list.

The number of offers wasn't the point. 5 or 25, none of them are NT. But it looks like 2 of them are TCU and $mut.
