I just read this article in the El Paso Times and I am in disbelief. I taught Chris and Julian were happy together. If any one has any more info please comment.
UTEP's Anthony Rotich won the steeplechase in Oregon at the NCAA track and field championship meet. Congrats to him! And he's only a sophomore.
Coach Floyd met with USC for 3 hours about their head coach opening. The article doesn't specifically state CTF was interviewing for the position, so it's possible this was not an interview for CTF. Regardless, this is bad news for UTEP basketball. It tells the rest of the NCAA that CTF is open to leaving UTEP. It's time to clarify coach!
Former Texas A&M QB Jameill Showers will be wearing UTEP's orange and blue for the next 2 years. Jameill was the backup for Ryan Tannenhill until Johnny Manziel stepped up and took the starting role. Jamiell is reportedly 6'2"/220 with a 4.6/40 and cannon arm. Big win for Coach K. It looks like UTEP has answered their starting QB question. Credit the good work from Miner Illustrated in breaking this story.
Set your DVRs to April 3 for a look at UTEP's new recruit Isaac Hamilton. He was named as a 2013 McDonald's All-American! Awesome to see UTEP's name up there with some of the more traditional college power schools. I expect to see more of this in UTEP's future, but sure as hell appreciate this one today. Picks up Miner faithful!
Not sure if anybody had posted this yet, but it was nice to see our 5 star recruit. This video was obviously shot before he announced his UTEP commitment, but what is most interesting are his comments about his brother Daniel. Good stuff! UTEP, Syracuse make moves up team rankings
JUCO combo guard, Jacob Thomas, committed to UTEP yesterday. He visited over the weekend. He is 6'4" and can shoot from beyond the arc. Originally signed to play at Long Beach State out of HS but did not qualify academically. Averaged 15pts as a freshman at Howard College and according to scouts will be an immediate impact.Here is a Link to his ESPN profile coming out of HS. http://espn.go.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/55590/jacob-thomas
Here's an in depth review of the Sun Bowl done by the guys over at Stadiumjourney.com. Have a read.
