Welcome Aboard - What You've Missed

For those of you new to HornsDigest.com, we wanted you to know a little bit more about HD - and why it's the No. 1 site on the Scout network for organic growth over the last six months.

Recently, it's because of scoops like Jason Higdon's call on 5-star OLB Malik Jefferson, 4-star WR DeAndre McNeal and 4-star LB Anthony Wheeler - all committing to the Longhorns.

HD was also first to report Augie Garrido's contract extension last June; Roger Goodell coming to Austin to meet with Charlie Strong; the behind-the-scenes reasons OTs' Kennedy Estelle and Desmond Harrison missed the 2014 season; and the dismissal of LB Deoundrei Davis.

We were the first to tell you there would be a Texas-LSU home-and-home series in 2019 and 2020 no Texas v Texas A&M bowl matchup this season.

We told you ahead of time about changes in the starting lineup - the revolving door at OLB (Caleb Bluiett, then Naashon Hughes, then Shiro Davis) right up to Jake Raulerson's start at right tackle for the Texas Bowl.

I've tried to document numerous goings on inside the new Steve Patterson-led athletic department - the new GM/Exporting philosophyeverything from having UT athletic department employees sign confidentially agreements not to talk to the media; to how writing in big buyouts into all coaches' contracts after DeLoss Dodds' philosophy was, "If you don't want to be here, we don't want you here."

As for us here at HD, we want you here ... and that's why we gave you a few ICYMIs to catch you up to speed on our work.

And with recruiting still heating up - you'll always want to be checking in on what Higs and Will Wilkerson have to report!
