WOODY VS. GORNEY: 3rd week college football picks against the contagion
BANKING CLASS OF 2025: Opponent100
1.Texas had a real hit to oust five-star LB Anthony Hill from Texas A&M.
Lawyers do: FICTION. I’ll put this in the ‘I’ll believe it when I see it’ category. Surely there is reason for optimism or at least a lot of hope Texas commits are trying to debunk him, Texas coach Steve Sarkisian and the inner defender team coach Jeff Choate attended Hill’s game on Thursday night and the five-star line-up kept the lines of communication open but Texas A&M completed his commitment and he must return to College Station this weekend. If things go south with the Aggies then yes, the Texas door could open but I’m not there yet.
Suchomel’s take: REALITY. I warn Texas fans not to get too excited about the prospect of subversion Anthony Hill However, as things were still in the early stages, UT staff had already been exposed to the five-star defender and Hill was receptive. Some Texas engagements have also reached Hill’s ears (or recruited him on social media) and there is a feeling among the prospects that Texas has a real shot. Hill’s appearance at a Texas game at some point is still under consideration, but to have a realistic chance at this one, the Longhorns will have to continue to play at a high level, especially on defense, and they will likely need Texas A&M to continue to struggle on the field.
2. Hour of final prediction: Jalen Hale will pick Alabama.
Lawyers do: FICTION. I know there’s a lot about Alabama and how much he and his family loved that official visit – and I wouldn’t bet the Crimson Tide that often because they usually get who they want – but I stick with Texas here. The opportunity to maintain status, compete for coach Steve Sarkisian and especially with Quinn Ewers and Arch ManningI just don’t see Jalen Hale Deny all of that.
Harris’ takes: FICTION. While Alabama was able to generate some buzz after his official visit to Tuscaloosa, I’m sticking with my original FutureCast Prediction in favor of Texas landing Hale. The four-star East Texas star told reporters at Future 50 in July that his decision has been made, and I haven’t heard anything from sources and people close to Hale to comment. indicates that there has been a change since then. Hale will be making an official visit to College Station this weekend, but I still see him picking up Texas on Wednesday.
3. Matt Campbell of Iowa would be the best recruiter in Nebraska.
Lawyers do: REALITY. In the past 10 years Matt Campbell right State of Iowa, the Cyclones had a winning season. Since that time, Iowa State has had only one losing campaign, which was Campbell’s first year at Ames. When USC did his due diligence on a pre-employment training search Lincoln RileyFrom what I got was that they highly valued Campbell and many decision makers felt he was following a similar career trajectory to Nick Saban. That doesn’t mean Campbell will be the next Saban but he was the head coach at Toledo and Iowa State in all 10 seasons and only lost more than once he won. That’s incredible. He is a healthy opponent, making the most of what he has and is only 42 years old. Forget the cake in the sky and chase the best fit for so many reasons.
Carpenters take: FICTION. Best rental in Nebraska will Luke Fickell. He’s the dream candidate, the absolute homecoming. But there was no chance for him to leave Nebraska. If we are talking about long range but can still have range, it is Dave Aranda or Matt Rhule. Aranda is originally from the Big Ten and can recruit Texas/Midwest. Rhule proven at Temple and Baylor that he’s a program builder who can turn things around quickly. But Matt Campbell is still a knockout recruit for a variety of reasons – especially if he brings his quarterback coach Joel Gordon with him. Campbell made Iowa State a major contender in the group of 12 in a situation with fewer resources than he had in Lincoln.
