A tremendous talent in Aaron Dumas Chooses UNM Lobos to pursue he's football career. Out of all the Options he chose Albuquerque NM. Don't understand his decision. I'm sure the coaches at UNM promised him the world. But in a city were it's notorious for drug usage,violence, homeless, police brutality not sure if that's a wise decision. Now in football terms. UNM went 2-10 and 0&8 in conference last year. Lastly does the UNIVERSITY OF NEW MEXICO sound or acts like a FOOTBALL TOWN. He'll miss that real college football experience. Not hating, just facts
Hankins waited just a little too long holding out for the "better" offer in order to go to those other schools. By the time he wanted to commit to other places, there weren't any scholarships available for him. Arkansas was a perfect example of that situation happening to him. UTEP should be a good fit for him, but only time will tell. I hope he has an outstanding career there.
As far as Dumas goes, hopefully he will be apart of the rebuilding there at UNM with a new HC. I commend him for accepting the challenge of going to a lesser known football program and wanting to make it better. He will hopefully get some early playing time in his career and opportunities to see the field. Good luck to that young man and make El Paso proud!
