On the same day the Texas Longhorns offered and received a pledge from South Oak Cliff safety Jamile Johnson, head coach Charlie Strong and his staff also extended an offer to his teammate, TCU wide receiver pledge J.F. Thomas. The 6'4, 185-pound wide receiver hasn't exactly been hiding at South Oak Cliff given all of his highly-recruited teammates.
This past weekend, USC's women's volleyball team held the annual USC Classic tournament at the Galen Center, and it did not have the results that it was looking for. With a 6-0 record heading into the tournament, the Women of Troy dropped both their matches against Texas A&M and the 10th-ranked Florida Gators.
It didn't take South Oak Cliff safety Jamile Johnson long to decide that he wanted to ride with head coach Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns , as the now-former North Carolina Tar Heels commit switched his pledge on Tuesday evening. The decision came only hours after he picked up his offer from the Horns.
Eric Davis was born to score buckets. And the shooting guard from Michigan announced on Tuesday evening that he'll be scoring his buckets as a collegian at the University of Texas.
A busy day on the recruiting front for the Texas Longhorns continued on Tuesday afternoon with the news that the staff has extended an offer to 2016 Cibolo Steele defensive end/linebacker Mark Jackson, according to Jason Higdon of Scout . The 6'3, 215-pounder is consensus four-star prospect rated as the No.
Taking advantage of a bye week before playing the Kansas Jayhawks , the Texas Longhorns extended three known 2015 offers on Tuesday. One went out to former Oklahoma commit Jamile Johnson, a consensus three-star safety out of South Oak Cliff.
Texas A&M wide receiver Speedy Noil suffered an apparent knee injury in the Aggies' victory over Rice on Saturday. His long-term status remains uncertain.
The Horns show improvement following the last week's debacle against the Cougars, but it's not enough to take down a Brett Hundley-less Bruins in Jerry World. Following a gut wrenching loss like that , it's tough to draw clear conclusions about program direction and progress.
The Texas Longhorns still don't have any commitments in the 2015 recruiting class, but that could change on Tuesday when four-star Saginaw Arthur Hill shooting guard Eric Davis chooses between Texas and UNLV. A consensus four-star prospect, Davis Is ranked as the No.
After earning first-team snaps during fall camp following a high school career that saw him rated as a consensus low-three-star prospect, Hall seemed to fall behind sophomore safeties Adrian Colbert and Dylan Haines when the season started against North Texas and the South Grand Prairie product was nowhere to be found except on special teams. Noticing the arrival of the 6'2, 207-pounder wasn't difficult, especially for Bruins players who felt the impact of several big hits when Hall got playing time early in the second quarter after it became apparent that UCLA was going to heavily feature the running game with back-up quarterback Jerry Neuheisel in for star starter Brett Hundley .
Texas A&M is becoming a more popular pick currently when it comes to projecting things like the SEC championship game participants or the four teams who will make the College Football Playoff field. Malcome Kennedy and the Aggies are sitting at 3-0, but there's still plenty of course corrections to be made on the field this season.

The immediate forecast for the Longhorns offense is pretty grim, but the long-term outlook is sunnier after Saturday night. Although his developmental curve is likely too gradual to avoid a rough showing in the standings this season, Tyrone Swoopes' second career start was impressive and encouraging in a number of different ways -- and very nearly enough to steal the upset when UCLA lost Hundley for the game.
The Texas A&M football team is 3-0 and ranked No. 6 in the country in the latest AP poll .
Texas A&M's Myles Garrett has already tied the school record for sacks by a freshman with 5 A1 2 and he's only played three games for the seventh-ranked Aggies. He has more sacks than any A&M defender had all last season and is just 2 A1 2 shy of tying the eight sacks Jadeveon Clowney, the top overall pick in this year's NFL draft, had as a freshman at South Carolina.
But before these teams pack it in, understand this: this is why the sport changed from the BCS to the CFP. We're going to say it over and over every week until it sinks in.
