Sport Steve Sarkisian, Texas land commitment from 2023 No. 1 RB
What Texas Western's Black players and white coach did in 1966 continues to ripple
What Texas Western accomplished that NCAA championship game in 1966 slowly and quietly made an impact that echoed more loudly as time passed on.In a tiny motel room in College Park, Maryland, the Black players had been summoned. They had just finished their pregame meal and Texas Western coach Don Haskins had cornered his big center David Lattin with a demand.
Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns have secured their first commitment for the Class of 2023.
Rueben Owens, who is in his sophomore year at El Campo High School in Texas, announced on Thursday that he has committed to the Longhorns. Owens said that part of his decision is attributed to how well he believes he fits in with Sark’s offense.

Why Trump’s border wall failed
In the United States, private property owners have a great deal of power to block or delay major public works. But even before Biden’s presidency, the wall didn’t get very far. Despite President Donald Trump’s promises, the administration built barely more than a dozen miles of new primary barrier and replaced or put up secondary barriers on less than 400 miles.

Securing a commitment from a player of his level could make it easier for more recruits to follow in the 2023 class. The Owens news comes just two weeks after.
Sark is off to a great start in recruiting. Now it’s up to him to win in the fall in order to convince the recruits to stick to their commitments.
