Hutto, Texas. Home of the Hippos. I kid you not. Apparently a hippo escaped from a train stopped in Hutto in 1915, had to be extracted from a nearby creek, and the name stuck.

I feel sorry for the student wearing the Hippo suit, if there is one.

Love that story.

Just added Kyron Drones, 6-3, 200 pounds, of Pearland (Texas) Shadow Creek for spring game.

Just added 4-star DE Javon Nelson to March 7 list.

I lived in Pearland from 2004-2006. Shadow Creek was a brand new development, a supersized subdivision really, about a mile from where I lived. I could see the early construction every day as I drove up Highway 288 to work in Houston, but nobody lived there yet. Back then Pearland had about 45,000 residents and one high school, which my son attended for ninth grade. Now the population is estimated at 122,000, three high schools, all in the largest classification (even with two other schools, Pearland High still has almost 4000 students). It’s kind of Bentonville on steroids, except not driven by Walmart.

The way the school district lines fall, Shadow Creek is actually in the Alvin district; Alvin, about 15 miles to the south, is best known as the place where Nolan Ryan grew up. Alvin has grown too but nothing like Pearland. Manvel, which has sent players to UA (Taiwan Johnson comes to mind), is also in the Alvin district.

All of which is irrelevant to a recruiting story but I just shake my head at what has happened in the 14 years since I left there.
