I think this is an interesting take. We have seen some terrific players come out of North Carolina in the last decade. Not so sure Maryland is a great state for HS football.
Overall, I still think Texas is a hotbed for great prospects. Many of the Universities in Texas have moved toward a more fun and gun approach. Univ of Texas has regressed, but they did teach UGA a lesson in a bowl game 2 years ago. Several other programs have improved, Baylor, Houston, TCU, SMU, Texas Tech. With the type of offense we run, we would do well to heavily go after Texas QB's and WR's every year.
I definitely think the OL talent is there as well as LB, DB and DL talent. I think coaching once these kids get into college is an important factor in making these kids successful. Frankly, I think there is way more college talent in Texas than in NC, VA, and MD times 5, maybe times 10.
