Texas high school coaches say they support Charlie Strong

Hot streaks and hot seats affect recruiting

ESPN recruiting reporters Erik McKinney, Tom VanHaaren, Derek Tyson and Jeremy Crabtree break down how the coaches at Utah, Michigan, Florida, Tennessee and Texas are influencing recruiting.

Charlie Strong knew upon his arrival on the Forty Acres the challenges he faced as the head coach at Texas would be colossal.

He inherited a roster full of five-star recruits, many of whom were more entitled than dedicated. Texas also lacked leadership in the locker room, lacked depth along the offensive line and most importantly lacked a star quarterback in a league where you have to put up points to survive. Yet, Longhorn fans were willing to give Strong time to turn things around because his ability to evaluate and develop talent had built Louisville into one of college football’s top programs.
