Ninth-inning home run pushes Texas State past No. 15 Texas, 11-10

A go-ahead home run by Porter Brown seemed poised to give the No. 15 Texas Longhorns a comeback victory on Saturday against the Texas State Bobcats at Minute Maid Park in the Astros Foundation College Classic and avoid two consecutive losses. HIS NAME IS DOWNTOWN PORTER BROWN. @PORTERBROWN_27's FIRST BOMB OF THE YEAR MAKES IT 10-9 TEXAS!#HookEm pic.twitter.com/qnUUkOVnmG— Texas Baseball (@TexasBaseball) March 3,...

AD Mitchell’s spectacular testing day complements proven on-field attributes

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports The Georgia transfer was the talk of the combine on Saturday until his former teammate stole the show. When former Texas Longhorns wide receiver Adonai Mitchell arrived in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine earlier this week, the critical question he had to answer was whether his testing numbers would match the reliable hands and high-level route running he put on tape in his single season on the Forty Acres. So when Mitchell ran a 4.34 40-yard with a 1.52 10-yard split, posted a 39.5-inch vertical, and an 11’4 broad jump while measuring in at...

Hamstring injury impacting Jordan Whittingon’s pre-draft process

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports Without being able to test for scouts, Whittington is in serious danger of sliding out of the draft. Another injury.

And then Whittington had to opt out of the critical showcase in Mobile with a...
