Welcome to your daily Board Meeting. Each evening we’ll update you on the day’s hottest topics on the HornsNation forum.

1. Smith and Davis get offers: It was bound to happen sometime. Texas finally offered the two top in-state defense back prospects. Maurice Smith and Antwuan Davis were both in Austin for the Orange-White game. They got their offers Monday. Neither has committed, but at least the waiting is over for them. Whatever Longhorns defensive backs coach Duane Akina’s vetting process was, it must have been intense. However, maybe it was the right approach. There are few spots left and Texas can’t guess that its going after the right prospects. Furthermore, DB was such a huge area of need, and given the fact that luring two big prospects – Vonn Bell and Marcell Harris – out of SEC country would be no easy feat, getting the best in Texas was key.

Cole Luke, who visited this past weekend from Arizona, did not leave with an offer.
