I’m asking for a favor. Click on this recruiting article I wrote for GridIronnow.com. I get paid by the page click. It’s about a 2019 4-star receiver (Jalen Curry) out of my alma mater, Stafford, Tx. Gridironnow is an SEC-centric site, so I’ll just add what him and his first head coach, Ken Savanah, said about our Coogs here,
Savanah on UH and new head coach Major Applewhite; “I think Major’s gonna do fine there. He’s been around and part of some good programs and being around good coaches you tend to pick up and absorb some of what they put out.”
And Curry said he has good relationships with the UH assts who travel down to Stafford. His WR coach and Co OC is Torrence Botts, who played on the basketball and football teams for UH in the late 90s/early 00s. Curry credits Botts for making him the receiver he is today. Hezekiah Jones played receiver w/ him last year and is a true freshman for A&M this year.
Other parts of the interview that were left on the ‘cutting room floor,’ if any of you are from the Stafford area you’ll enjoy this,
Coach Savanah on how he plans on coaching a team that made the state quarterfinals last season; “our systems won’t change a lot. There may be one or two things we tinker with but there won’t be a lot of changes. We’ve been successful the last 4 years I’ve been here. I expect us to have an opportunity to continue in the playoffs and be successful.”
Curry on the Stafford area (he’s been there since his freshman season); “they’re family to me. The community treats you well. I’ve really enjoyed being part of turning the program around.”
