Texas football hosted its first-ever Texas Stampede, bringing in recruits from the 2014, 2015 and 2016 classes to help them get familiar with the 40 Acres. The event was highlighted by two new commits, three new offers and one big no-show.
Hired this past March, director of player personnel Patrick Suddes has hit the ground running. He has already led to the first sophomore and freshman offers in school history, and continues to keep Texas fresh on the minds of its recruits.
Texas Stampede is just the latest of Suddes' innovations. Instead of bringing the players to work out, the event was designed to get these players in front of the coaches and get familiar with their potential peers.
Here is what you need to know about the event's debut, starting with the two newest Longhorn commits.
