College baseball’s all-time wins leader and five-time National Championship coach was 79 years old.
Augie Garrido, one of college baseball’s legendary coaches who claimed five National Championships, the final two at Texas, passed away early Thursday morning at the age of 79.
AUSTIN — The Longhorns Basketball team doesn’t have to look far for one of the nation’s best prospects. He’s already down the street. We go 1-on-1 with one of the nation’s best high school basketball players.
And destroying the Central Texas region as a do-everything sophomore.
Texas is in.
The Longhorns will make their 34th overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament and 18th in the last 20 seasons. Texas is one of six schools to appear in at least 26 of the last 30 NCAA tourneys.
AUSTIN — After signing a stellar class in 2018, Texas had one more rather large hole to fill before it embarks on the new season; a left tackle.
Mission accomplished. Former Westlake OL, Rice transfer Calvin Anderson is headed to Texas.
Despite the loss of Mo Bamba, Matt Coleman foul trouble, no Andrew Jones or Eric Davis, and failing to finish in regulation, the Longhorns upset No. 20 West Virginia at the Drum on Saturday.
And now they’re probably Big Dance bound.
As we approach the end of February, here’s the latest recruiting notes from the 40 Acres. Catalon, Richardson, Ellison, Dixon, and more on a Wednesday.
Statement from University of Texas sophomore guard Andrew Jones:
This week starts in North Houston with one of the state’s best corners, then down to Cuero for 5-star level athlete on both sides of the ball, swing over to ETX for an offensive lineman meaner than a pitbull, then finish in the ATX with the best WR in-state. It’s an all 2019 Recruiting Notebook.
Good news, they’re all in the Top 50.
So the recruiting weekend might be pretty nice after all.
On the final weekend for the 2018 class, UT has a number of signees and elites from 2019 and 2020 on the schedule.
Most you already read in the Humidor. A few new ones to notice.
