The Longhorn Round-Up presented by My Chihuahua Bites Salsa with Hookem.com is back, tackling some of the hottest topics relating to Longhorn sports and recruiting in this weekly podcast.
This week's Longhorn Round-Up hits the biggest recruiting stories, the latest from practice and catches up with former Longhorn Cory Redding.
The team of Hookem.com's Jeff Howe and Austin radio veteran Matt Butler take Longhorn fans through more than an hour of nothing but Longhorn news and notes.
This week on the show, the guys talk about the detailed reports Hookem.com has gathered from Texas football's fall camp. In addition to that, there are plenty of recruiting tidbits including some out-of-state nuggets and a few details on the top basketball recruit in the nation for the 2013 class.
Like every week there are ten quick-hitting Longhorn questions in “The Blitz”.
Plus, Cory Redding joins the guys for “Gridiron Talk”. Cory shares stories about his playing days at Texas, his opinion on some of the new coaches at Texas and he tells us what it takes to be a really good defensive lineman.
