First off, I would like to thank Aggie nation for welcoming me into their family 3 years ago and showing nothing but love and support. I have created a number of relationships and memories that I will cherish forever. Logan will always have a special place in my heart and I am thankful for my time here. The last week has been very overwhelming, and I would like to thank all of the schools who have reached out to me during this time and given me an opportunity to play for them. Through days of prayer and conversations with my family, it was clear to me God has a plan for me and I trust him to lead me in the right direction. With that being said, I will be spending my next two years with the coaches that believed in me and my potential from the very beginning. I am very excited to announce that I am committed to Texas Tech University. #GunsUp!

No extension deal expected between Chargers, Hunter Henry before deadline

  No extension deal expected between Chargers, Hunter Henry before deadline It’s not an ideal outcome for Henry, but he does have the honor of being the first tight end to receive the franchise tag since 2014, when the Saints used it to cuff Jimmy Graham. For now, Henry says he’s focused on the present. “To me, I have so much to prove,” Henry said recently. “Honestly, everybody knows my history of injuries. Unfortunate injuries that have happened in my career and I feel like that has held me back a little bit sometimes. I’m just eager to kinda get through something that I haven’t been able to do for a full season … I feel the best I’ve felt in probably a couple years, for sure. I’m excited.

Presumptive replacement for Jordan Love at QB for Utah State enters transfer portal. Henry Colombi spent the 2019 season as Love’s primary backup. However, it’s now being reported that the quarterback has entered the NCAA transfer database. That season helped Wells land the Texas Tech job.

Colombi was a three-star member of the Utah State Class of 2017. The Fort Lauderdale product was rated as the No. 47 pro-style quarterback in the country.

The head coach who recruited Colombi to USU? Matt Wells, who is now in the same position with the Red Raiders.

As a true freshman, Colombi took a redshirt.  The past two seasons, he appeared in a total of 13 games.  In that time, he completed 53-of-69 passes (that’s 76.8% for those without a calculator) for 460 yards, two touchdowns and one interception.  He also ran for 139 yards and another two touchdowns on 27 carries.

It’s believed Colombi will be joining the Red Raiders as a graduate transfer.  He will have two years of eligibility at his disposal.

Colombi’s decision to leave Utah State came a couple of days after Utah quarterback Jason Shelley officially transferred to USU.  Prior to Shelley’s signing, Colombi had been the favorite to replace starter Jordan Love.
