The hosts discuss important dates, including the beginning of summer workouts in about 8 to 10 days. Detailed analysis of the top 2026 running backs follows, including Javian Osborne, Tradarian Ball, KJ Edwards, and their potential impact on the team. The Longhorns’ only current 2026 commit, Raycine Guillory, is also mentioned.

Wells talks about his RPM pick for the Longhorns to land five-star Jacksonville (Fla.) Mandarin WR Jaime Ffrench. Williams goes into detail as to why he believes Texas will win out for Cedar Hill (Texas) O-linemen Jordan and Devin Coleman.

The potential of a star-studded wide receiver class that includes Ffrench, Kaliq Lockett, and Dakorien Moore comes next. Williams says Moore reminds him of Odell Beckham Jr. The trio talks about where that group might rank compared to other fantastic wide receiver classes.

Discussion follows on the importance of letting recruits take their visits to other schools and how it can positively impact their final decision. Emphasis on the relationships built with recruits and their families, comparing current efforts with historical recruitment strategies.

After that, specific recruiting conversations about the recruitment of quarterbacks KJ Lacey and Keelon Russell are next, with Williams emphasizing the importance of due diligence and careful selection by Texas. Then questions are answered about 2026 EDGE KJ Ford, DB recruiting, Arch Manning’s effect on wideout recruiting, and the college football landscape.
