Zane Ellis's Achievements

  1. According to Evan Daniels at Scout.com, five-star big man Elijah Thomas has trimmed his list to 6. The 6 schools that made the cut are Texas A&M, SMU, UNLV, LSU, Illinois & Oklahoma St. Texas made his top 10 & was thought to be in good shape with Thomas. The 6-foot-9, 240 pound C currently attends Lancaster after also attending Prime Prep Academy & Rockwall. He is rated at the 17th best player in the nation by 247sports composite score.
  2. A little over 48 years ago to the day Charles Whitman was standing atop the Texas Tower taking shots. Today we remember. The whole attack was 96 minutes long and went from a little before noon to after 1. 13 people were dead another 35 injured. Here I wanted to share this excerpt from a book I saw and read, it's very cool, a little long, but worth the read. Here is the link: http://alcalde.texasexes.org/mondaymonday/
  3. In this I will list the greatest players to play under Mack Brown. In Coach Brown's 16 year career at Texas, 58 of his players heard there names called in the NFL Draft. I will list Coach Brown's All-Texas team. Also, this list is by their performance while at Texas, not the NFL. The players are in order, a depth chart if you will. Here we go: (Pos/ Name/ Year of leaving Texas/ Draft Position) QB: -Vince Young, 2006, R1/P3 -Colt McCoy, 2010, R3/P85 -Major Applewhite, 2001, Undrafted RB: -Ricky Williams, 1999, R1/P5 -Cedric Benson, 2005, R1/P4 -Jamaal Charles, 2008, R3/P73 WR: -Jordan Shipley, 2010, R3/P84 -Roy Williams, 2004, R1/P7 -Quan Cosby, 2009, Undrafted -Limas Sweed, 2008, R2/P53 -B.J Johnson, 2003, Undrafted -Jaxon Shipley, 2015, Undetermined TE: -David Thomas, 2006, R3/P86 -Jermichael Finley, 2008, R3/P81 -Bo Scaife, 2005, R6/P179 OL: -Mike Williams, 2002, R1/P4 -Justin Blalock, 2007, R2/P39 -Leonard Davis, 2001, R1/P2 -Jonathon Scott, 2006, R5/P141 -Kasey Studdard, 2007, R6/P183 -Derrick Dockery, 2003, R3/P183 -Will Allen, 2006, Undrafted -Tony Hills, 2008, R4/P130 DE: -Brian Orakpo, 2009, R1/P13 -Cory Redding, 2003, R3/P66 -Sergio Kendle, 2010, R2/P43 -Brian Robison, 2007, R4/102 -Jackson Jeffcoat, 2014, Undrafted DT: -Casey Hampton, 2001, R1/P19 -Marcus Tubbs, 2004, R1/P23 -Lamarr Houston, 2010, R2/P44 -Shaun Rogers, 2001, R2/P61 LB: -Derrick Johnson, 2005, R1/P15 -Keenan Robinson, 2012, R4/P119 -Roddrick Muckelroy, 2010, R4/P131 -Emmanuel Acho, 2012, R6/P204 -Sam Acho, 2011, R4/P103 CB: -Nathan Vasher, 2004, R4/P110 -Quentin Jammer, 2002, R1/P5 -Aaron Williams, 2011, R2/P34 -Aaron Ross, 2007, R1/P20 -Curtis Brown, 2011, R3/P95 S: -Earl Thomas, 2010, R1/P14 -Kenny Vacarro, 2013, R1/P15 -Michael Huff, 2006, R1/P7 -Michael Griffin, 2007, R1/P19 K: -Phil Dawson, 1999, Undrafted -Justin Tucker, 2011, Undrafted -Anthony Fera, 2014, Undrafted In my opinion these were the top players at each position. One of the toughest positions to sort was was WR. Putting Jordan Shipley in front of Roy Williams was tough but after looking at Texas' receiving records (http://grfx.cstv.com/photos/schools/tex/sports/m-footbl/auto_pdf/records_ind_receiving.pdf) I felt that was right. Also looking at Jaxon Shipley's stats through 3 years I think with a big year, which is capable, I think he deserved a spot on the list. The Offensive Line is kind of a "place wherever you want too after Davis." Also Linebacker wasn't the easiest thing, after Johnson, the rest were kind of mix-and-match. Robinson had the most tackles through his four years but the Acho brothers were tied with the most TFL's with 32.5 through there seasons. 3 were tied for the most interceptions. When it gets to Safety, they were all top-tier players while wearing the Burnt Orange. All 4 could easily take the top spot. I personally think this is pretty cool, seeing what Coach Brown has done for Texas football over the past 16 years. Tell me what you think.
  4. According to reports and his twitter (@Jayev14), Texas has offered Aggie S commit Justin Evans. Evans has been committed to Texas A&M since May 1st. The 6-foot-0, 185 pound, four-star S has recently learned he was eligible to enroll this summer but A&M wants to keep him for the 2015 class. 247Sports rated him as the nations best Junior College safety, he attends Mississippi Gulf Coast C.C. Evans also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia along with others.
