Texas Loses Third 4-star Dt In Less Than 24 Hours; Longview’s Za

On Tuesday night, a pair of four-star defensive tackles, Trey Lealaimatafao and Courtney Garnett, decommitted from the Longhorns in part because of coaching staff shakeups. According to ESPNs Damon Sayles, Texas lost its third four-star defensive tackle in Longviews Zacoven Henderson on Thursday, leaving them with no interior defensive linemen in the Class of 2014. Henderson has no yet commented on the report but did send out a tweet hinting that he was not happy with defensive tackles coach Bo Davis leaving Texas to take over as the defensive line coach at USC. Lealaimatafao and Garnett also said Davis departure played a major role in their decision. The 6-foot-1, 318-pound Semper Fidelis All-American originally committed to TCU in February before backing out in September. Henderson then committed to Texas on December 9 over Baylor and Texas Tech at a ceremony at his school. <br>Read more:

Texas named its McCombs School of Business after the benefactor, and he has a statue inside Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. McCombs has donated more than $100 million to UT and is a close friend to Brown. <br>Read more:

Texas high-speed rail study moving not so fast

Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx moved the project a few inches down the track Tuesday by announcing a three-way partnership that includes public and private dollars. "Today, Im proud to say that the Federal Railroad Administration , TxDOT (Texas Department of Transportation) and the Texas celebrity tape Central Railway have come to an agreement to prepare two environmental studies that will lay the groundwork for high-speed rail between Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston," Foxx said in a prepared statement at a speech in San Antonio Tuesday. "Of course, theres much more work to be done before the tracks can be bolted down. But were thrilled to see that our grant money is being leveraged by private funding. And its my hope that, through the cooperation of public and private sectors, we can one day link Texas major cities with state-of-the-art passenger rail." Transportation experts say Texas is the best potential market for high-speed rail because of its flat geography and the ability to connect two major metropolitan areas. The estimated $10 billion project is proposed by Texas Central Railway, a Dallas-based company. Its parent company is U.S.-Japan High Speed Rail based in Washington D.C. <br>Read more:
