Suggest all TX schools
all HBCs (including UCLA/Drew)

I'm sending up a flare to the wise @gyngyn...I don't know how OOS schools view AA candidates from TX. They may very well figure that you'll want to stay in the Lone Star State..or they might want to recruit you heavily!

At least try Tulane, for starters.

EDIT:
