Longhorns Hire Former NFL Scout To Personnel Department

AUSTIN – The Texas Longhorns had one major problem that seemed to outpace most others over the past decade.

The ability to find and develop real talent.

On Thursday, it was reported that Texans took a big step aimed at fixing these issues, hiring a former NFL scout and former NFL talent evaluator, Bobby Merritt.

The Longhorns had six players signed as Unresolved Free Agents after the draft ended.

Nowhere were the aforementioned shortcomings in talent exploration and development more pronounced than in the 2019 recruiting class for Texas, however, 19 players from that class moved off or left the roster.
