    Seems like Applewhite has been targeting players who don't have a ton of offers or are possibly underrated by the recruiting services. We've had a good track record in the past (for example, William Jackson was a two-star guy whose only offer was from us), so I don't have a problem with the star ratings. We'll get an idea of Applewhite's eye for talent.

    The Lufkin kid is a good one; could be a standout.

    UMass transfers Dejon Jarreau and Brison Gresham committed to UH Basketball today. They will attend juco for academics in 2017-2018. I think they will both have 3yrs eligibility starting in 2018-2019. I am trying to find out for sure.

    That Eloph injury hurts. Need better play from o-line this year and not great to lose depth at this point.

    Looks like 4-star Defensive End Isaiah Chambers from Aldine will be joining Oliver on the line. I believe he's going to be a sophomore, moving back to houston cause his aunt (guardian) was diagnosed with something.

    He redshirted last season as a freshman at TCU, so he's still a freshman. If he chooses UH the already tough d-line will be a monster next season. I'm sure he's fully aware of Oliver since Westfield is right up 45. Maybe the NCAA would give him a hardship waiver so he could play this season. Technically he hasn't picked a new school but Houston has to be the choice. Texas and A&M are actually close to home if someone is sick.

    I wouldn't think Texas would be an option because an in conference transfer means he will lose a year of eligibility. The family illness could get him a waiver where he wouldn't have to sit out a year.

    I would doubt Texas is a strong option since UT is the a few hours away, I only included UT because they were on his radar originally along with A&M.

    Believe he loses a year of eligibility regardless of conference. More likely that Patterson would restrict him from transferring within the conference though. But yes the NCAA could grant a hardship waiver.

    If he gets a hardship waiver we are going to wreck shop on D this season.

    Regardless if he has to sit he will probably end up getting a season of eligibility restored later on.

    Feel bad for the kid's circumstance but I'm hoping he can help himself and his family here with the Cougars.
