Do you enjoy running in extreme heat and humidity?
Yes, the XC programs in Texas are not good but there is a school that rocks the track. Look into A&M’s program. If you are a 800-mile Guy, that is the place to go to win NCAA championships on the track!
My guess, since he says he is a junior, is that his best times on the track are 4:29/9:26 as a soph. Not bad, but way too soon to be talking to UT, TCU, or A&M. He will need to lay down a 4:18/9:20 this year for any of the top Texas teams to even talk with him.

You haven’t told us your times or what you are looking for other than a few schools in the south. You don’t care about good teams but you are considering some that went to nationals. I am guessing that you are a 9:20 guy who is looking for a top notch XC team. Some of your choices won’t take you.
I’m not big on Watson. He seems to overtrain his guys. Watch the WoW videos on flotrack from this year and from when he was at UNC/UVA. If you’re a distance guy, OK State, New Mexico and Ole Miss are all better options.
