Shipley close to Flippen? Leander update. Harsin gets DeRuyter reviews.. I Hear
Nothing decided yet, but as What I Hear reported two weeks ago, Brownwood coach Bob Shipley is having talks about a position with the Flippen Group, the fast-growing leadership and educational group which hired Brad McCoy from Graham last year.
"I love what they do and I have a passion for growing leaders and helping coaches and athletes reach their potential,' Shipley said. "I use their philosophies in my program and it's helped us incredibly. They're an exciting company and you'll see them involved more and more with school district's athletic programs as well as college and professional organizations."
Leander is looking for a replacement for retiring Steve Gideon but offensive coordinator and interim head coach Clint Harper is the leading candidate to take over a strong program which has six playoff berths in the last six years under Gideon . Highly regarded Georgetown assistant is expected Bill Wilder is expected to join the new staff of Lance Moffett at Fredericksburg...Cameron Yoe quarterback Jack Rhoades will attend Texas A&M, according to his dad, Yoe coach Rick Rhoades. Jack is undecided about whether to walk-on at A&M but decided not to take playing offers at Angelo State and Midwestern State No exactly under the radar but Class of 2012 receiver De'Vante Lacy of Grand Prairie may be another real steal for the Horned Frogs, who are showing the most love. Lacy also is a top baseball player who reminds me most of former W.T. White and UT first-round draft pick Calvin Murray with incredible speed in centerfield taking away hits.
Parish Episcopal School defensive back Charles Cook will go to Yale University after setting a TAPPS state record with 16 interceptions as a senior leading Parish to the Class 4A state title. Cook strongly considered Harvard where he was hosted by former Lake Highlands star Ricky Zorn.
Texas has its first 2012 commitment with quarterback Connor Brewer of Arizona committing earlier this week. Texas looked at SA Reagan QB Trevor Knight as well and still might bring Knight in for a visit. Both a 6-2, 190-pounder with good arms, decent roll-out and 8-yard run threat. Look like taller, stronger Riley Dodge to me but Riley was faster but not as strong of arm Bishop Dunne defensive tackle Alex Norman is the grandson of former Dallas Cowboys star Pettis Norman and likely could be start of Texas' Class of '12 which will add several commits with UT's first Junior Day coming Sunday Former Texas defensive coordinator Will Muschamp.. now coaching someplace in Florida has made offers to Austin WR Cayleb Jones and Skyline LB Peter Jinkens. Muschamp seemed very high on Harker Heights 6-6, 270-pound tackle Camrhon Hughes but hasn't offered yet.
