“Old School Edition”
The Longhorns are looking at out of state and JUCO players to complete their 2013 recruiting season. According to William Wilkerson of Hornsnation.com, the Longhorns have also shown interest in two defensive linemen from Dodge City (Kan.) Community College, defensive tackle Toby Johnson and defensive end Marcus Hardison, along with the nation’s top 2013 prospect — Loganville (Ga.) Grayson defensive end Robert Nkemdiche
Mack Brown said he would like to have two tight ends and with one, Belton’s Durham Smythe, already in the fold they are looking at Woodland Hills (Calif.) Pierce College product Beau Sandland. Smythe is David Ash’s high school teammate.
If that fails Mack might want to look to the baseball team. The newest recruit for the Horns is a 6’6 tight end..uh..short stop who played his freshman year at Eastern Oklahoma State. You can get the entire skinny on Codey McElroy hereÂ https://www.hornsports.com/a-brief-chat-with-newest-longhorn-baseball-commit-codey-mcelroy. Good Job Commander Dude.
Somebody finally said no! DeSoto RB Dontre Wilson became the first high schoolÂ player, offered aÂ scholarship, to say “no” when he announced he would sign with Oregon. Texas had offered 23 players for the 2013 class and 14 had accepted, with the rest considering. I guess UT will have to “settle” for Malcolm Brown and Jonathan Gray, the two highest rated RB’s in 2012 and 2013 or maybe Wilson just opened his eyes to the reality of the situation.
A question… What are your thoughts on running back DJ Monroe moving to wide receiver? I think this may be a home run for DJ, where he can display his 10.3 speed. He has been a player between positions in his three years in Austin, so I hope his senior year is a break out one for him and UT.
When it was said SEC expanded its footprint into Texas by adding A&M, Dodds said, “They have a sliver down the East side” of Texas.
This didn’t sit well withÂ Barrett Sallee, the lead SEC blogger for Bleacher Report.Â Â Sallee writes, “Dodds statements may show more than additionally appeared.”
“The fact that Dodds would go out of his way to put A&M down, especially when the two schools aren’t scheduled to play on the gridiron (for now), says that he feels threatened and is looking to find any way to keep the Aggies down,” Sallee said. “That’s even more critical for Dodds now that Texas A&M is no longer under his thumb as the de facto ruler of the Big 12.”
Not satisfied with that bit of delusion he went on to write , when he lost a tooth, he put it under his pillow and in the morning money appeared. Someone should tell Barrett that the SEC has been in Texas for years andÂ additionally Â there is no tooth fairy.
