247Sports reports that Brenden Schooler’s brother, Collin Schooler, a linebacker out of Arizona, is joining the Texas Tech as a graduate transfer. That means the Schooler brothers will face off against each later this season, after Brenden joined the Texas Longhorns.

From 247Sports: “[Collin] Schooler likely would have remained at Arizona for his final season of college football but chose to leave the school after the conference killed the fall season. On August 11, shortly after the Big Ten made the same decision, the Pac-12 decided to not play football this fall. Schooler cited the decision by the conference to not play this fall as a factor in his decision to leave the Wildcats.”

NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • The Austin American-Statesman reports that university officials are launching a new program to help athletes monetize and maximize the new name, image and likeness rule. From the Statesman: “A new program called Leverage is “designed to equip Longhorn student-athletes with the knowledge and tools necessary to maximize their brand and platform,” the university announced Monday. According to UT, the new program incorporates four key areas: personal branding and brand management, business formation and entrepreneurship, opportunity management and financial literacy.In layman’s terms, UT wants to be ahead of the curve when the NCAA adopts new rules in 2021 that allow an athlete to cash in on his or her name value. UT quarterback Sam Ehlinger could theoretically get paid to post something on his Twitter or Instagram feeds, for example. Or, a UT athlete could get paid to do TV commercials, make paid appearances or sign autographs.”
