HOUSTON - It has been a busy last month for Jordan Revels.

The North Shore defensive lineman had a receiving touchdown, six tackles, one forced fumble and earned 6A State Championship game Defensive MVP on December 22 to cap his senior campaign.

"Feels great knowing I left a legacy behind me," Revels said about leaving with a state title.

On Saturday, Revels picked his next stop giving new Texas State coach Jake Spavital a big get on the defensive side of the ball by verbally committing to the Bobcats.

"I've been having love for Texas State academically wise and I was very familiar with the new coaching staff," Revels said. "They came from Texas Tech, my teammates were committed to Texas Tech they always talked about how good the coaches where and things like that."

After Yordan Alvarez suffered an injury on Thursday from colliding into Jeremy Peña in short left field, many fans and media are questioning whether Alvarez should DH exclusively to keep injuries like this from happening.

While this may prevent injuries from happening in left field, there are numerous ways of getting hurt, such as running the bases, and we saw Alvarez miss some time recently with a hand injury from swinging the bat.

Plus, playing Yordan in left where he's at least an average outfielder, allows veterans like Michael Brantley and Jose Altuve to slide in the DH spot to get some much-needed rest over the course of the season. And there's an argument being made that Yordan is better at the plate when he's playing the field.
