Outstanding! Welcome to the Longhorn basketball family. Work hard on the court, study hard off the court and have a great time here.

I like lefty guards. Collins after this and then grad transfer market? 6 freshman in a class is a bad idea

I rarely post in basketball threads, because I have no idea what I'm talking about. Still, the "Tamar Bates. Google me" quote has me very optimistic. Honestly, with that kind of mindset, I'd like to see him in pads and playing Linebacker against OU on 10/10.

The longer we go without playing games, the easier it is for me to forget that our coach can't coach but might recruit his way to another contract.

I dunno.  I think Jai Lucas may have just driven a stake through Shaka's heart.

If Shaka doesn't win more games he's gone but I wouldn't bet on recruiting falling off after losing Lucas. They just landed Bates who had offers from schools like Kansas and that was without Lucas. 

People thought recruiting was going to fall off after Horn left and Texas lands a 5 star big almost every cycle.

You say that, but Collins was lined up to be that dude, he looks more OU-bound by the week.

Yeah, but that's because Lucas was his primary recruiter.

That doesn't say much about recruiting long term. It's definitely going to have an impact on the guys Lucas was recruiting (like Collins) but they're still going to land good players with Shaka and KT Turner. Bates already proves that.

Yeah, well our 5 star big that was a silent to us is about to follow Lucas to Calipariville.

Likely OU but that's what happens when you lose a coach that was the primary recruiter of a player for over a year. That doesn't mean Texas will fall off in recruiting it simply means they lost the coach that was recruiting a certain player. Relationships matter. 

KT Turner has been landing high profile grad transfers left and right at SMU. Anei and Davis were very good players in the Big 12 and a ton of P5 schools wanted them. I wouldn't bet on recruiting falling off with Shaka and KT Turner. But recruiting obviously doesn't mean much if Shaka doesn't start stacking some wins.

Speaking of KT Turner, if Anei doesn't get a waiver to play at SMU this year I do wonder if he follows KT Turner to Texas. 

Turner was a big reason Anei picked SMU. If Jankovich is fired I would say there's a very good chance it happens if Anei doesn't get a waiver.
