Coach Herman knows the biggest key to a successful offense is the play of the offensive line. The Coogs have added a two-star, 6’6″ 280 lbs. offensive lineman, Jarrid Williams, from Cedar Hills, Texas outside of Dallas.
Lost in the discussion of Ohio State’s dominance of Oregon is how incredible their line played and was able to contribute to the holes for Cardale Jones and Ezekiel Elliott. The Coogs looked absolutely lost on offense last year until John O’Korn was benched for Greg Ward, Jr. and still never reached their full potential. A huge reason why their offense was so putrid is due to the amount of turnover on their offensive line. Hopefully the new recruits along the o-line will help the Coogs move the football.
In case you missed this awesome article back in October about the UH “Third Ward D”, I’m re-posting it (hey, I didn’t have a blog back then). Former defensive coordinator David Gibbs did an excellent job building up an excellent defensive unit. I wish him the best at Texas Tech! He’s laid out some excellent groundwork for incoming defensive coordinator Todd Orlando. Here’s an excellent overview of Coach Orlando’s background.
Up and coming Houston emcee Doughbeezy was on his way last week to visit a friend’s home in Houston’s Heights neighborhood when he stumbled upon a home invasion in-progress. Due to some quick thinking on Doughbeezy’s part he was able to grab a firearm and shoot one of the suspects and scare off the other one. It’s crazy out there y’all, stay safe!
In the meantime, enjoy Doughbeezy’s awesome track “I’m from Texas” at the top of the post.
The Coogs have given an offer to Keondre Wudtee, a three star QB who’ll be a senior this fall at Parkway in Bossier City, LA. and eligible to join UH in 2016. Wudtee is a teammate of Kameron Eloph who has committed to attending UH in 2015. Not a lot of info yet about Wudtee, but he’s listed as a 6’3″ 170 lbs. pro-style QB and also has an offer from Louisville.
The Cougars received a verbal commitment from Kameron Eloph who flipped his commitment from Louisiana Tech. Eloph is a 6’3″ 277 lbs. offensive guard from Bossier City, Louisiana who’s being recruited as an athlete (which means he may play a position other than guard, such as on the defensive line).
The Coogs have offered another four star running back, this time for Darius Anderson of George Ranch High School in Richmond, Texas. While Tyreik Gray has already given his verbal commitment to UH, Anderson still hasn’t decided.
