While the signed players were good enough to earn Texas one of the highest-rated classes in the country, head coach Tom Herman had even better news.Per 247Sports, on Thursday morning, Herman revealed that the Longhorns still have scholarships available that they plan on giving out, and could make another announcement before the week is over.“We still have about five or six scholarships that we’ll probably sign,” Herman said. “We’re not going to sign guys just to sign guys, but if the right guys are available then we’ll certainly do that.“We still plan on maybe even one or two left to sign in this signing period. Certainly, we’ll sign a couple of more in the next signing period.”Among the potential signings could be 4-star OT Javonne Shepherd, who gave Texas his commitment but has yet to sign his letter of intent.247Sports noted that 4-star OL Isaiah Hookfin could be another candidate, as he was expected to announce his commitment to Baylor but ultimately changed his mind on National Signing Day.Herman stated that the Longhorns would be actively searching for players that were the right fit, and would not sign players just for the sake of bringing up their numbers.“If there’s a player out there we feel like we can develop into a player that can help us win a conference title and a national title, then he falls into that category,” Herman said. “We’re not just going to signing guys just to sign guys for numbers.”
It said the government must strive and expedite the construction of remaining houses in a time-bound manner.The report also said the SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) University is yet to have its own campus, hostel and a standardized curriculum in place, library and books for issuance to students and urged the ministry to expeditiously work upon the construction so that the university can shift to its own campus. However the committee said it has been asking the ministry that all proposed projects including building of 50,000 houses should be completed within a specific timeline. “The Committee, however, has observed that no timeline is being followed in any of the proposed projects perhaps due to bureaucratic delays and lack of cooperation.” An Indian parliamentary panel has criticized the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) over its “slow progress” in the resettlement work in Sri Lanka.The Standing Committee on External Affairs, which presented its report on demands for grants of the ministry for 2012-13 in parliament on Tuesday, observed that the Indian government was spending a substantial amount on rehabilitation of internally displaced persons in Sri Lanka by way of constructing houses, schools, hospitals, roads etc. It recommended more funds for Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) and expressed concern over “poor planning and slow progress” of the Nalanda University project.
