Former Arizona State defensive coordinator Danny Gonzales has made Arizona a recruiting go-to for football talent since he was hired as New Mexico's head coach. He was able to pull one of what he hopes will be several out of the state, after Scottsdale Notre Dame Prep senior linebacker JD Roberts gave the Lobos a commitment to play. "I was really impressed with the coaches," Roberts said.
The Ole Miss basketball program has added its second commitment to the 2021 class now that Sparta, Tenn. native Grant Slatten has verbally committed, via Twitter. The White County High School product chose the Rebels over early offers from the aforementioned Lobos of New Mexico, Morehead State, Tennessee Tech, and USF.
A 16-year-old has been arrested after a standout New Mexico high school basketball player, who planned to play for the state’s largest university, was shot and killed Saturday, authorities said. The teen, a Santa Fe resident, was charged in the death of 18-year-old FeDonta “J.B.” White, the Santa Fe County Sheriff's Office said. White and the 16-year-old had gotten into a fight before the boy shot him, authorities said.
