Default Mohamad Bamba to Texas

Likely the #1 overall pick in next year's draft. Texas no longer a lock to finish in the cellar. Everything I'd read had him as a lock to Kentucky or Duke.

remarkable recruiting coups for Texas. I watched him play in the McD's game and some other stuff and he's an amazing athlete. He's still working on his game but he has so much physical ability that it will be silly for most to match up with him.

True. With Lattin and McNease we should be one of the only teams in the league that has athletes that are at least in his stratosphere. He's an older kid, so I'm guessing he won't struggle like some of the one and done kids have.

Shaka has to start getting results, but I figured he'd be able to recruit well to Texas.

Boy he got a good one in Bamba. That kid is smart to boot. He was considering Ivy League and that was my pitch to his family when we were discussing it online. He's like a Bill Russell type in that he tries to play an all-around game.

Yup Bamba isn't #1 overall. Luka Doncic and Michael Porter Jr. will be the top 2 picks.

They never were a likely lock for the cellar. They have a lot of talent returning, even without Jarrett Allen, and it's likely that Andrew Jones is going to remove his name from the NBA draft. They also have 1 of the top recruiting classes in the country coming in. They'll be good. I know a lot of people here like to bash on Shaka Smart and UT but I'd be surprised if they weren't back in the tourney next year.
