 RedRaiderSports’ Drew Kohnle has a recruiting notebook one of the things that’s mentioned at the beginning is that transfer receiver JoJo Robinson is actually going to be in Lubbock this summer (July) and will be eligible this season:

“I’m taking that role head on (being accountable on and off the field),” Robinson told RedRaiderSports. “I had problems at my former school that I have learned from, matured from, and have grown from. Now I am a totally different person off the field. On the field, I feel better than I have ever been and better than I was before. I’ve been working hard to perfect my craft. I’m ready to break out and put it in on the field.”

There’s a ton more recruiting information there so make sure and check it out.

 AthlonSports is cranking out the content and has the best quarterback match-ups for the Big 12 and Nic Shimonek is mentioned in games with Blake Barnett (Arizona State) and Baker Mayfield (Oklahoma).

 Miscellaneous . . . Heartland Sports’ Pete Mundo chatted with Byron Hanspard and it’s definitely worth your listen . . . via USA Today, former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach is still angry over not receiving the $2.5 million salary from the 2009 season and I will guarantee you that he will not give this up until he gets paid . . .
