Jefferson, Dickson, Elliott named AP All Americans



Dickson and Elliott are first teamers, Malik Jefferson garnered second team honors.

Jefferson was also the Big 12 Co-Defensive POY and finished with 110 tackles and four sacks playing both Rover and Mike LB. He finally lived up to his massive athletic potential. Credit legitimate S&C, Todd Orlando and Jefferson’s own natural progression as an athlete. He’s a good dude who works hard. He’ll be sorely missed.

Elliott stuffed the stat sheet like no other Longhorn with six interception, three forced fumbles and two pick sixes. The physical junior would have benefitted from another year in Austin, but I wish him the best in the NFL draft.

Dickson doesn’t need much shine here. He’s the best punter I’ve ever seen at Texas.

Congrats to all.

Michael Dickson named Big 12 Scholar Athlete of the Year



Incredible accomplishment. Best punter in the country and he still has a 3.5 GPA in Finance at McCombs with all of the time requirements that football demands. Solid life plan for Michael - make millions punting in the NFL, move back to Aussie, manage overseas Chinese portfolios from yacht, purchase Australian Rules Football club.

Texas Offers Speedster Craig Williams



The Longhorns have an offer out to Baylor commit Craig Williams. The slightly built running back and potential slot receiver is one of the fastest high school players in the country, recording a 10.23 100 meters as a junior and clocking in at a verified sub 4.4 40. He’s only 5-9, 165 pounds, but adding size and strength to the genetically gifted isn’t much of a challenge.

Williams may be insurance against losing current commitment Rondale Moore (who is infatuated with Jeff Brohm at Purdue) but I think he’s an offer on his own merits. He averaged over 10 yards per carry as a senior and 24-7 considers him a Top 50 in state recruit.

Horns Land Big OL Recruit Commitment from Utah



Junior Angilau from Salt Lake City commits to the good guys. He fills a vital need and he’s a good looking, physical prospect on film. We won’t really know whether he’s an interior lineman or OT until he gets to campus, but the safe bet is that he’s a guard with potential upside outside.

The 19th commitment of the 2018 class heralds a fevered finish as the Horns could take as many as 25 recruits in this class.

Texas Hooks Horned Frogs AD



Del Conte will need to learn to raise up a couple more fingers

Kurt Bohls dropped a MOAB on Texas sports this afternoon with his scoop of the new Texas Longhorns AD. Chris Del Conte of TCU fame has agreed to become the new Texas athletic director.

3rd round. You have the over or under?
