Been away for a while but this could be huge news for Texas. If we some how get him on campus, he instantly makes our lineup that much better
Hinojosa will have surgery-it is dislocated and not a tear to his non-throwing shoulder.
"Back at USA Trials in the summer, I dislocated it and I didn't think much of it," Hinojosa said. "But I kept playing on it and I worked it out and everything to strengthen it and the first game of the season this year it popped out again. And then two weeks ago, I was going for a ball up the middle and I dove on it and it popped out and that was the third time. I had seen the doctor and he said after about the third time it can happen just about whenever."
The following day in practice, Hinojosa's shoulder popped out of place again, so he's out of action and waiting to have surgery. Hinojosa will see the Astros' medical director, Dr. David Lintner, who is still at spring training, so Hinojosa will either have surgery the week of Easter or the week after that.
Hinojosa said the doctor believes the damage is to his ligaments and not his labrum and the damage is to his non-throwing shoulder.
"It's upsetting, but everything happens for a reason and it's some adversity and a little bump in the road that I'm going to have to get over," Hinojosa said. "Whenever I come back, I'll be more than ready to play just from missing out so much."
What is all of this CJ looking around and possibly with A&M? Anyone heard anything?
yes, that is absolutely true...visited A&M last weekend, still committed to Texas at this moment
Something happened between him and Texas. I have no idea what it is but I've seen speculation over percentage of scholarship he would receive. Hope he comes to his senses but we may not see him either way. He will be selected highly in June's draft.
Apparently C.J. Hinojosa's flirtation with Texas A&M is over and he is expected to sign an LOI to Texas
obviously the draft is still in play and so by no means is there any guarantee, but a very important recruit is at the very least still on the board for Texas.

@PGAllAmerican SS C.J. Hinojosa, who has been committed to #Texas, expected to sign with #Horns today, per sources. No huge surprise. #UTKendall Rogers (@KendallRogersPG)

Hinojosa would've been a good get for #TAMU, but his addition will be huge for #Texas, with SS as a big need position in 2013. #mlbdraft

I noticed Courtney Hawkins said he had a good talk with him the other day. I hope he also talked him into leaving some of the drama in high school. If he gets here, I want him here with a clear and focused baseball mind. Good to see the LOI though. $#@! aggy.
I seriously doubt there was much of a realistic chance C.J. would've gone with A&M, but he was looking at all options.
He's loved Texas since the day they showed an interest in him...so just glad it all got worked out for him.
Thanks for the info, Joe. We definitely need a shortstop, so they may have raised the percentage.
He will start next season at SS. Now, we just have to get him on campus. I have a little hope for him and Austin Dean to make it. Hawkins, Williams, and Mathisen are going pro

The compliance office has certified the NLI and ASA paperwork for C.J. Hinojosa... He joins a fall signing class of 13 players.
Good news. Now we just have to get him on campus.
Kendall Rogers told OB this:
He's likely college bound. His stock has dropped a bit lately, my guess is because of the injury (which isn't that serious).
had his surgery today...sounds like everything went well.
he tweeted a pic of him throwing up the hook'em horns from his hospital bed.
