"We got riddled pretty good."
Wright's next stop is Willowridge High, where he tells quarterback William Shankle—whom Texas wants as a defensive back—that "you are awful important to us."
Says Shankle. "I told Coach Mac that I most likely will be coming to UT" He does say that he will visit Oklahoma but tells Wright not to worry.
Moments later Wright is in earnest conversation with Cavness, a teammate of Shankle's and a player of Strait's caliber. In Cavness's presence Bobby Jack knows no shame. He is in full beg: "Whooee, we want you! You're gonna fine up and win games for us. You're the best DB coming out. If we could get one defensive player, it's you. If you come to Texas, I'll be one of the top secondary coaches in the country."
"Thank you," says Cavness.
"We're gonna treat you like a king."
"And all we expect is for you to play like a king."
