Football recruiting

Kheeston Randall: Coaches Impressed
Monsignor Kelly defensive tackle Kheeston Randall made a huge splash when he committed to the University of Texas back in February. Not many people had heard of him before his commitment, but since then he has shot up the rankings. Randall attended Texas' summer camp two weekends ago and talked about the experience.

SGP: Loaded with '09 Talent
South Grand Prairie High School in Grand Prairie, Texas may have the most talented group of 2009 prospects in the Lone Star State.

Red River Recruiting Battle?
Mountain Brook, Ala., four-star offensive tackle Tyler Love named a top five several days ago and had a visit on tap to Florida State for the weekend, however that visit did not take place.

Durant makes March Madness game cover
Austin American-Statesman
Two days before he'll be selected in the NBA draft, former Longhorn basketball star Kevin Durant has been selected for the cover of the EA Sports video game March Madness ‘08.

Call off the search party: I found Kevin Durant

I've been searching the Internet for nearly two hours and can't find one site that has Portland picking Texas' Kevin Durant with the No. 1 overall pick.

Texas whopper? Durant has look of authentic star
Tacoma News Tribune
It's popular to presume – but hardly guaranteed – that Portland will pick Ohio State center Greg Oden with the first choice of the NBA draft, "leaving" Texas forward Kevin Durant available for the Sonics. For the Sonics, it's a foolproof situation.

This guy looks like a giant star in the making.
