The announcement included a picture of him in a Longhorns uniform, and another with his friends and family making the “hook ’em horns” gesture.100% Committed #HookEmPer 247Sports, Hullaby is the No. 830 prospect in the country.

He finished the season with 1,181 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns, along with another 33 receptions for 392 yards and five receiving touchdowns.The addition of Hullaby gives the Longhorns five commitments for the Class of 2020, tying them with arch-rival Oklahoma for the most in the Big 12.However, the Longhorns still trail the Sooners in the overall recruiting rankings. Per 247Sports, Oklahoma is ranked No. 13 nationally while Texas is rated No. 16.There’s plenty of time left for Texas to make a recruiting splash and win the offseason.
London – Morocco is among the three most prosperous African countries, the Legatum Institute said in its “Africa Prosperity Report 2016.”South Africa is the highest ranking country followed by Botswana, Morocco, Namibia, Algeria, Tunisia, Senegal, Rwanda, Ghana and Burkina Faso, the London-based think tank pointed out.The 2016 Africa Prosperity Report shows that decades of economic growth across the continent has failed to deliver greater levels of prosperity for many African countries. The Legatum Institute’s 2016 Africa Prosperity Report reveals how economic growth across Africa is not necessarily being translated into higher levels of prosperity in individual countries.Researchers at the international think tank sought to determine what level of prosperity African countries can and should be expected to deliver given their level of wealth.This was done by assessing a country’s level of wealth (GDP per capita) modelled against its overall ranking in the think tank’s own Prosperity Index (which uses eight economic and social factors including Entrepreneurship & Opportunity; Governance; Education; Health; Safety & Security; Personal Freedom; and Social Capital.)
