Gridiron Imposter?

LOS ANGELES () -- Just who is No. 24 for Texas?


Coach John Mackovic says he's Ron McKelvey, a 23-year-old backup and special teams player.


The Californian, a newspaper in Salinas, says he's Ron Weaver, a 30-year-old impostor who is in his seventh season of college football.


The story, which appeared Saturday, sent Mackovic and Texas officials scrambling to determine if McKelvey is who he says he is and, if not, to do damage control.


McKelvey -- or Weaver -- transferred to Texas after two seasons at L.A. Pierce College, where he was All-Western State Conference and all-state. But the Californian says that he also played two seasons at Monterey Peninsula College, then two at Cal State Sacramento, finishing there in 1989.
