Arlington Bowie running back Russell Hansbrough has switched his commitment from Arizona State to Missouri.
"Decommiting from a college is by far one of the hardest things to do. I am officially a man and I am officially a Mizzou TIGER," Hansbrough wrote on his Twitter account.
Hansbrough, who posted 1,250 rushing yards and 20 total touchdowns (even while dealing with a leg injury) this season, also held offers from Texas Tech, Baylor and Auburn among other schools.
He becomes the fourth player from the area to commit to the Tigers, as Keller Central offensive lineman Simon Goines, Everman linebacker Torey Boozer and Cleburne defensive back have given Missouri their pledge.
Taylor sticking with baseball
Mansfield Timberview quarterback Charles Taylor said on Tuesday that he will stick to his baseball commitment to UT Arlington, rather than pursuing football in college.
Taylor, who recorded nearly 4,000 total yards and 39 touchdowns in leading the Wolves to the Class 5A Div. II state semifinals, turned down offers from Air Force and Navy.
Oakridge QB considering four
Oakridge quarterback Calvin Garret is down to four schools, according to Owls coach Phillip Farhat.
Garrett, the nephew of Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, plans to choose between Dartmouth, Princeton, Bucknell and Holy Cross.
He plans on visiting Holy Cross later this month and will make his decision afterward, Farhat said.
Garrett accumulated 2,500 passing yards and 20 touchdowns this season to go with four rushing touchdowns.
