Football recruiting:

The Texas Longhorns have seemingly created a pipeline at Brenham High School over the last two years. Brandon Collins and Ahmard Howard both signed with UT in February, and Ryan Roberson and Luke Poehlmann jumped on early offers after attending Texas' first junior day. Roberson checked out the Longhorns spring game on Saturday and had a great time.

Several members from the Texas' 2007 and 2008 recruiting classes were in attendance for the Longhorns' annual spring scrimmage that was held over the weekend. Allen, Texas wide receiver Dan Buckner enjoyed the experience and came away very impressed with the offensive unit.

Hoops:

Augustin planning to return to Texas next season
Houston Chronicle
Texas point guard D.J. Augustin will not test the NBA waters and instead plans to return to the Longhorns next season, his father, Darryl Sr., said Monday.

Baseball:

Texas in search of a third starter
Daily Texan
Augie Garrido thought about calling Roger Clemens to help, but Texas' coach is pretty sure the NCAA won't let him come back for another season. His joke got some laughs, but there's a serious issue behind Garrido's quip. After their 5-2 loss to Oklahoma on Sunday, the Longhorns are 4-5 in the series finales, including both Big 12 losses. But Texas has only lost four Friday or Saturday games this year, with all but one of them coming in the first two series of the season. The difference for the No. 7 Longhorns, who host UT-San Antonio today at 6:05 p.m., seems to be their starting pitching.

"We want Gail to stay at Duke ..., and we're going to do whatever we need to do to get her to stay." Goestenkors has yet to make up her mind.
