NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • The Associated Press reports that the Senate Judiciary Committee hopes to have a bipartisan plan “in place to regulate the way college athletes can be compensated for name, image and likeness” by Sept. 15. That was in the words of South Carolina Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, who’s skeptical of whether the bill can be passed in time. From the AP: “The NCAA is in the process of crafting legislation to change change its rules and permit college athletes to earn money for things like endorsement and sponsorship deals, appearance fees and social media promotions. The association’s board of governors wants detailed plans in place by November that can be voted on by member schools in January.”
  • Texas Ex Devin Duvernay is officially a member of the Baltimore Ravens, 247Sports reports. From 247Sports: “Duvernay’s deal was the last of the Ravens’ 2020 NFL Draft class to be finalized. A four-year contributor at Texas, Duvernay was the second Longhorn drafted in April — only a few spots behind former Texas safety Brandon Jones —when the Ravens selected the receiver in the third round with the No. 92 overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Baltimore’s selection of Duvernay marked the first Texas receiver taken in the NFL draft since Marquise Goodwin was picked up by Buffalo in the third round in 2013.”
  • West Virginia Mountaineers defensive coordinator Vic Koenning is out, 247Sports reports. From 247Sports: “Koenning and West Virginia agreed to mutually part ways after just one season, according to a release from the athletic department on Wednesday. Koenning was in hot water last month regarding insensitive tweets amid the protests of racial injustice sweeping the country. Notably, West Virginia safety Kerry Martin Jr. spoke out on Twitter regarding Koenning’s tweets.”
