Football recruiting

Goodwin Commits for Football and Track
The Longhorns picked up two for one on Sunday. Rowlett receiver Marquis Goodwin gave his commitment to head football coach Mack Brown to play football and to head track and field coach Bubba Thornton to run track at the University of Texas.

Change of Plans
Darius Winston was planning taking a visit to Texas for Sunday's camp, but something came up at the last minute, forcing the five star cornerback and current Arkansas commit to reschedule. However, Winston, one of the top players in the nation for 2009, is staying in close communication with the Texas staff and plans on taking a visit this month.

Carrington Byndom Takes in Austin
Lufkin High School has always been known for producing quality Division I football players. Jamarkus McFarland is one of the best in the class of 2009, but Lufkin also has a very talented 2010 safety prospect in Carrington Byndom. Byndom camped at Texas over the weekend and talked about the experience.


Four Schools In The Mix For Selby
Josh Selby had a productive spring playing with Team Melo and proved himself as one of the better point guards in the 2010 class. This past weekend he took a trip to an SEC program and he'll head to a Big East school next week.

Baseball recruiting

Cutting Benson Now is the Only Thing to Do
Bear Report
The Chicago Bears selected Cedric Benson with the No. 4 pick in the 2005 NFL Draft, but $17 million in guaranteed money has returned little more than a long holdout before his rookie season, a lengthy injury history, and a lengthening rap sheet. The time has come to send this Longhorn out to pasture.
