A favorite point of discussion--recruiting West Texas and Texas in general: "We want to get a lot of players from West Texas and move on through the Metroplex area and through Houston," Tuberville said. "Last year, we actually signed 12 players outside of Texas ... That won't happen that often. But we got in so late. You're recruiting players when they're in ninth and 10th grade and building relationships. So we had to go to other places. "I think in the next few years, we'll take probably 80 percent of the players from the state of Texas and a lot of them from West Texas. I'm excited about that. There's great coaches and great players, and I'm looking forward to them being a part of our program."
