Bo Davis active on the trail, tire action

A busy weekend in terms of Texas Longhorns news could continue throughout the week as the football schedule and both basketball teams have plenty to offer. The football program remains active on the recruiting path after Junior Day weekend. There are also some coaching jobs that are either announced or nearing completion.

Bo Davis cites some of the latest updates on the recruiting path for the Longhorns staff, with a handful of late-cycle offers handed out for the Class of 2023. Over the weekend, it was announced on social media that Texas DL coach Davis had offered under-the-radar 6ft 5, 305lb Lawrence County (MS) defenseman Jonathan Davis.

Another late-cycle DL target for 2023 that could potentially get an offer soon is unranked Southwest Mississippi Community College product Jaden Hamlin. Davis and the Longhorns reportedly (per Inside Texas) hosted Hamlin for an unofficial visit over the weekend.

Davis is clearly keeping an eye out for potential DL targets to add late in the Class 2023 cycle.

Additionally, the Texan men’s baskets will return to action on Jan. 24 for the first time in a week and a half at the Moody Center. Texas and interim head coach Rodney Terry will host head coach Mike Boynton and the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Austin on Jan. 24, with the tip-off time set for 8 p.m. CT.

One of the larger storylines that enters this game has to do with second guard Tyrese Hunter’s injury status. The reigning Big 12 Newcomer of the Year left the game in the second half in Texas’ win over the West Virginia Mountaineers on Jan. 21.

There is no specific status update we have on Hunter yet. But we’ll continue to monitor what comes out regarding an injury update for Hunter.

The women’s next game is the Red River Rivalry game on the Jan. 25 hardwood against the No. 14 Oklahoma Sooners.
