The latest issue of Dave Campbell’s Texas Football is on shelves, and former Texas Longhorns quarterback turned SMU Mustangs starter Shane Buechele is on the cover.

As a junior last season for the Mustangs, Buechele passed for 3,929 yards, with 34 touchdowns, 10 interceptions and a 62.7 completion percentage. “When [Buechele is] done with his NFL career [Burnt Orange Nation’s emphasis, not his], he’s going to come back to Dallas and then I think he’s going to start making the real money because of who he is, what he’s done and the way he’s handled himself,” SMU head coach Sonny Dykes told 247Sports last month. “To me, there’s going to be people lined up, fighting over him to hire him some day. He, to me, is the ultimate example of somebody who has created a brand for himself.”

High praise – and much deserved for the former Longhorn.

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • The Big 12 will allow voluntary on-campus workouts for basketball players starting July 6, the Dallas Morning News reports. From the Morning News: “It’s a revision from the protocols announced late last month, which had basketball players returning to campus on July 15. Players haven’t been allowed to work out on campus since the cancellation of March Madness. Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said on Friday that a number of conference basketball coaches had lobbied for an earlier return to voluntary campus workouts.”
  • Longhorns sophomore pitcher Owen Meaney has entered the transfer portal, the Austin American-Statesman and 247Sports reports. From the Statesman: “Due to the NCAA’s decision to give back a year of eligibility to its spring athlete, Meaney can play for three seasons at his next stop. A 6-5 right-hander out of Houston, Meaney was 0-2 with a 4.24 ERA over his nine appearances at Texas. Meaney started three times. His best outing was a five-inning, two-hit effort out of the bullpen against No. 11 Arkansas in 2019. Meaney will exit a crowded clubhouse at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. So far this offseason, he and senior Donny Diaz are the only announced departures from UT’s 35-man roster.”
  • The Longhorns have offered the nation’s No.1 receiver in the 2022 class, Tetairoa McMillan out of Anaheim, California, Sports Illustrated reports. From SI: “McMilan is currently ranked the No. 1 receiver in his class for a reason and every program worth its salt will likely end up making an offer on him. Right now his list of top schools seems to mostly focus around west-coast programs like Stanford, USC and Oregon with LSU and Notre Dame the two far-off schools that could play a factor. This will certainly be a tough battle with every program throwing out their best pitch, but the Longhorns certainly have some time make their case over the next year plus.”
