Welcome to your daily Board Meeting. Each evening we’ll update you on the day’s hottest topics on the HornsNation forum.
1. Raulerson vs. Prevot: It was a much-talked about showdown at Sunday’s Nike Football Training Camp in Dallas. Texas commit Jake Raulerson, who lined up in a variety of spots on offense, battled defensive end target Torrodney Prevot. Sure, they could soon be teammates if Prevot commits to Texas. They could even line up together on the same defensive line if Raulerson ends up on that side of the ball. At least for one afternoon, they were competitors, and HornsNation’s Max Olson took some videos of it. This is what these types of camps are all about -- best vs. best competition that you might not see elsewhere. Check out the video, play scout and weigh in on this matchup. More importantly, help us decide who won.
2. Many happy returns: One of the few Texas highlights of last season’s Red River Rivalry game was Fozzy Whittaker’s 100-yard kick return. Then Whittaker did it again the following week. It was just one of the many ways Whittaker contributed to the Longhorns before being injured. While Texas is set at running back, it needs to find the right guy to return kickoffs. After Whittaker’s injury, several candidate tried, but with minimal success.
HornsNation’s Carter Strickland looked at the efforts this spring to find a kickoff returner. The hopefuls, including Marquise Goodwin, Jaxon Shipley, Quandre Diggs and D.J. Monroe will likely be joined by incoming freshmen Daje Johnson, Kendall Sanders and Johnathan Gray. But we’re asking for your opinion. Join the thread with who you think can do the job.
3. Texas hoops and Ridley: RecruitingNation’s Dave Telep caught up with prized Texas basketball recruit Cameron Ridleyto find out his status since he has yet to sign his national letter of intent. Telep reports that Ridley fully intends to sign his LOI and soon become a Longhorn. That good news comes on the heels of Myck Kabongo’s announcement that he will return for his sophomore season. That combination along with Sheldon McClellan, Julien Lewis and Jaylen Bond should be formidable and one of the better units in the Big 12. Will it affect J'Covan Brown’s decision. Let’s hear your thoughts.
Remember, the forum is always open. Stop by and add your thoughts to some of these threads or start your own and talk with the HornsNation staff.
