Just saw that Dixie Wooten transferred out of the program to Blinn JC. Anyone have more info?
I don’t have anything super specific other than he was having a lot of problems with his grades. Hopefully he can go there for year and clean it up and come back to us. But if you look at the new spring roster thread you can see his tweet thanking all of us.
Bust after bust after bust.
I’m not talking about the hall of fame. Or a Vegas chorus line.
I’m talking about our OL recruiting.
I understand your disappointment about our inability to get good offensive linemen in, but you really can’t call this a bust. A bust would be our guys recruiting an offensive lineman that turns out to be terrible. This is just a case of somebody that can’t make good grades in school. We have yet to see what he can even do on the field. Besides he could go to Blinn and get his grades turned around and come back in and kill it.
UH has been more competitive as of late and getting good grades is harder here than in any other school. We really aren’t competing with Texas schools we are competing with the likes of MIT USC UC Berkley schools that actually make strides. I read an article once on how UH was one of the hardest places to get an A. Some of my old friends who had transferred to other schools say it’s a cake walk where they transferred compared to UH which made them more prepared and ahead of their peers. While this sucks because we lose quality players. They are being challenged and we are becoming more recognized.
Dixie was a bit of a partied while at UH and didn’t try to hard with the grades. Blinn is a good spot for him now; doubt he comes back.
