This note has nothing to do with Texas Tech, but according to the Kansas City Star, an alleged rape of a 16 year old girl occurred in the dorm that houses the Kansas basketball team and there are five players listed as witnesses: Frank Mason III, Mitch Lightfoot, Lagerald Vick, Tucker Vang and Josh Jackson. Yikes.

If you’re looking for some good recruiting notes, check out RRS’s Drew Kohnle with a recruiting notebook and signing day one week away. There are some reactions from players who visited this past weekend, which included Samuel Barnes (new offer for the defensive back from George Ranch), DB Adrian Frye, RB Desmond Nisby and OL Casey Verhultst. There’s also some tidbits on who will be visiting this weekend, including JUCO DB Elijah Walker, high schooler DE David Anenih and possibly Chabstin Taylor.

Hire a new offensive line coach and a new offer goes out. Golden West College OL Dezmond Green was offered yesterday. Green is a big player and looks the part, finishes well and I like this.

You’ve got a kicker. Allen’s Michael Ewton has received and accepted a preferred walk-on spot at Texas Tech.

Miscellaneous . . . NFL has a mock draft and has Patrick mahomes going to Buffalo in the second round . . . 24/7 Sports’ Travis Haney has an article on what anonymous AD’s have to say about Art Briles and as you might imagine, he’s still radioactive, but there is the note that we’ve know for a while, which is that there are people (boosters or admin) who want to hire Briles, although the athletic department is still with Team Kingsbury. I’m personally very tired of Briles and want him to go the damn hell away . . .
