Ke'aun Kinner update
A lot of you have been waiting for some movement on the Ke'aun Kinner situation. The Little Elm RB will be a Longhorn if he can get the test scores he needs.
Kinner got his SAT score back today. He needed an 800. The score he got was 750. So now he moves on to the ACT results, which he's expecting to receive on Feb. 25.
Remember, Kinner did sign with Navarro College earlier this month so that's his fall-back plan if he can't get his scores up.
Here's the original story we wrote on Kinner, if you haven't been following along.
750 on the SAT? That sounds gooder then I spected. Am I write?
What ACT score does he need to qualify?
A 750 SAT correlates to an 11 ACT.
The lowest SAT score they show on a conversation table is 750, does that tell me something?
Something doesn't seem right about the scoring but guess he can only report what he was told.
We'll see if we can learn more. Discouraging at this time, however.

Wait are we sure 750 is the right number? Out of 2400? I got like a 680 on the math section alone.
Forget about this guy.
That has to be 750/1600, right? Can't be out of the new 2400 scale...
I'm pretty sure that the newer writing portion is not factored into the long standing 800 min requirement, so yes, if true it would be 750 out of 1600 possible. If he is particularly weak in the Math portion, ACT may prove better option.

that's appallingly low even if out of 1600. He's looking at being in the 10-15 percentile range (as in 85-90% of other test takers scored higher).
I believe it has been mentioned on IT that he needed a 19 on the ACT to qualify. This ESPN report seems to have some facts wrong.
I think in the early 90's a 720 out of 1600 was needed to enter a major 4 year university. Now they use a sliding scale based on your Core Subjects GPA (if i'm not mistaken).
Or the report from IT has some facts wrong?
Pretty sure out of 2400 you get 800 points just for spelling your name right...
I can't imagine that he'd be having qualification issues if he only needed an 800/2400 on the SAT. His grades would have to be pretty high for that to be the case, if it is even possible for that low of a score to allow someone to qualify. That's a pretty damn low score.
Those bubbles can be mighty tricky...
Anyway 750 out of 1600 is appalling. I'm suprised Texas would even let an athlete in with an 800. I'm rooting for the kid but if he can't make those scores I seriously doubt he'd be able to keep up his grades up even for a year.
Would think it would be more considerate to simply publish whether he made it or not (ESPN should know better )
The kid deserves some privacy .
I am hoping he can get there on the ACT . I have a junior going through the process and they do have kids that bomb one & kill it on the other . Would not be crazy about having his results dissected online and would love to see KeAun get there after all of the scrutiny .
Not preaching , just sayin

The 750 is almost assuredly only out of the 1600 for math and reading comprehension portion of the test (1600 total).
OB just reported he will not be given an offer regardless and has moved on.
The NCAA only uses the math and English portions of the SAT, so it is 1600 max. 400 is the minimum score that a student can obtain. That's what I made when I took it.
Here's a link to the sliding scale.

If we hadn't, we wouldn't have won a national championship in 2005 (although his was an 840 admittedly).
Coach Bell said you get 400 points for spelling your name right
