The Junior Day was to create momentum and it did. The spring game should compound that momentum, and as you’ve seen in the other thread, Texas has a very nice list of RSVP’s for Saturday’s event. We could see a commit or two go down this weekend, but that’s not for certain.

Program Focus: Houston Heights

One of the more visible high school coaches in the Houston area is Heights’ head coach, Stephen Dixon. I’ve bumped into Coach Dixon at numerous camps and college practices over the years. He’s easy to spot with his stout build, and ever-present smile.

What do you want, Mr. Commissioner?

The NCAA hasn’t revealed the news just yet, but I will soon be named as the organization’s new Commissioner Of All Things (COAT).

As such, I need to go ahead and lay out a few of my first items of business, once the NCAA makes the news official.

The Inside Scoop – 4/10/17

Sights and sounds from this weekend’s scrimmage, depth chart movement as Spring winds down, UT’s Big Board – Offense – for the 2018 Class, and notes from weekend visitors. Plus, some hoops recruiting nuggets from the hardwood. As usual, the Scoop delivers on a Monday.

but this staff is rapidly taking me back to that wild side of life. I appreciate the overall coverage we see from our crack set of writers but most of all it’s the little inferences we catch from them that bring that bacon home for me. It’s such a pleasure to read how well this staff regards the teaching aspect from the various sources. Onlookers and recruits alike preach the same sentiment—we are all in this together after watching this staff work the roster on the field.
