NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • There’s a lot to look forward to between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners’ classic Red River Showdown in the coming years, according to 247Sports. From 247Sports: “The No.1 ranked quarterbacks in the 2021 and 2022 recruiting cycles – Caleb Williams and Quinn Ewers – are set to take part in the rivalry. Williams, who ranks as the top quarterback and No. 7 overall prospect among rising high school seniors per the 247Sports Composite, committed to the Sooners on July 4. Texas answered by landing Ewers, 247Sports’ top-ranked rising junior, on Aug. 14. Adding two of the nation’s best arm talents to the Big 12 rivalry is sure to increase the likelihood of fireworks in the years to come. Each five-star quarterback fits well with his future college coach and offensive scheme.”
  • The Dallas Morning News reports that Dallas Cowboys starting tackle La’El Collins, an LSU Tigers alum, was involved in a “major crash” last night, though the report notes Collins was unharmed. From the 247Sports’ report: “A protector of Dak Prescott and road grader clearing the path for Ezekiel Elliott, Collins signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent in 2015 before quickly turning into one of the franchise’s best players up front. He signed a 5-year extension with the Cowboys prior to the 2019 season that will keep him in Dallas for the foreseeable future as Jerry Jones tries to build around a young nucleus on offense.”
