The summer is prime time for enjoying the outdoors, barbecuing and pursuing the nation's best recruits. For the Texas Longhorns, that means giving Kendall Sheffield and Malik Jefferson the full-court press.
After a rough start, Charlie Strong and his staff are gaining some steam on the recruiting trail at just the right time. Having reeled in four commits since April, the 11th-ranked class is starting to take shape, allowing the staff to spend the summer focusing on filling the remaining holes.
Based on need, talent level and availability, the emphasis for that time frame should be on adding Kendall Sheffield, Malik Jefferson, John Burt, Chris Warren and at least of the state's better defensive tackles.
