Sorry, but when I get a chance to catch up with the immaculately dressed @DrewKelson I’m going to take advantage.

The late-bloomer OL is something Texas is continually on the lookout for. They reeled in someone who fits that mold in Isaiah Hookfin. The 3-star from Sugar Land Dulles inked with the Longhorns this morning.
