I did not know most of this. Dede has really had it tough.
Wren, a former walk-on, was put on scholarship earlier this season. Today, he was granted an extra year of eligibility, making him a redshirt-junior as opposed to a senior. This is huge for the O-line. The starters for the past few games have been Brown, Powers, Wren, Samia, and Evans. Brown is a redshirt-sophomore, Powers is a sophomore, Samia is a sophomore, and Evans is redshirt-freshman. Assuming Brown doesn't go pro, we should return our entire starting O-line. We will still have good depth as well, with his backup, Alvarez, returning next year.
Even if this kid had played for Texas, I'd still be rooting for him.
I have to tell you that I am very proud of this man. He proves that everyone deserves a second chance, and that people do in fact mature when they get older and wiser, and change can be made for the better.
