No. 4 RB Bijan Robinson emerges as key Texas target

No. 4 RB Bijan Robinson emerges as key Texas target

In late May, Galena Park North Shore running back Zach Evans dropped a bombshell on the burnt orange faithful, eliminating the Texas Longhorns from consideration with the release of his top five. Considering how many times Evans made it to the Forty Acres and the importance of landing a top prospect at the position in the 2019 recruiting class, the news from Evans was a huge blow. A little more than two weeks later, Tucson (Ariz.) Salpointe...
