NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • Texas volleyball senior Ashley Shook is planning to enter the graduate transfer portal once she finishes this season with the Longhorns, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “Shook is in line to graduate this semester with a degree in Human Dimensions of Organization and a minor in business. She would then look to be a graduate transfer at another school that offers indoor and sand volleyball. When she signed with Texas, Shook was regarded as the sixth-best prospect in the 2017 recruiting cycle. Shook was installed as a starter once she got to campus, and she averaged 10.8 assists per game as a freshman. That fall, she was named the Big 12’s freshman of the week on three separate occasions. But during that 2017 season, a UT team that had championship aspirations underachieved and was bounced in the postseason’s fourth round.”
  • USA Today reports that athletics departments like at Texas plan to reimburse coaches who are taking voluntary pay cuts this year. From USA Today: “Dozens of other public schools have negotiated pay reductions with their coaches as they attempt to work through financial problems created by the COVID-19 pandemic.
