Ball Pair Commit ... Plus Wednesday Hoops Scores!

Galveston Ball cornerback Caldwell Brown orally committed to play football for Texas Tech, while teammate and defensive lineman Walter Thomas has opted for Texas A&M.

Brown is 5-10, 170, and selected Tech in part because of the Red Raiders' needs in the secondary. Brown is a first cousin of Quentin Jammer, the former Texas Longhorn now playing in the NFL for San Diego.

Thomas, 6-5, 340, had previously given an oral commitment to Oklahoma State, but backed off from it. Until this year he played on the offensive line. Thomas was also recruited by Arkansas, Arizona and LSU.
