    I don't believe Texas would have put out an official release if Shae had not signed a scholarship offer LOI.

    Not many times have we had 15 scholarship players on the roster. Coach G preferred a much smaller roster, and I did not agree with that philosophy as injuries really took their toll while she was here.

    She was signing something on that table with coaches and Mom watching!

    Baylor's roster was:

    2 Seniors: Brown, Jackson
    3 Juniors: Cox, Landrum, Chou
    4 Sophs: Ursin, Richards, Oliver, Morris
    5 Fresh: Smith, DeCosta, Bickle, Egbo, Scott-Grayson

    2019 committed: Jordyn Oliver

    So, for 2019 they would have 3 more slots if no further attrition. There could be one or two more departures at Baylor based on recent posts.

    The irony of this is that the transfer rule is supposed to be allowed if you go to a school that offers a graduate program your original school does not.

    I know, a laugher.

    And to see that she's working on a masters in sport management at UT when it's obvious A&M offers it too.....just get rid of that stipulation NCAA. What a joke.

    That was the original intent of the grad-transfer exception; but, I recall reading somewhere that the different major requirement is no longer in place.

    I always assumed there were several loopholes in the grad-transfer provision. Maybe the original school only offers an undergrad degree in that program? Or the destination school can offer a grad specialization not offered at the original school - Sports Management with a focus on Finance for example. If @Moooooo is correct, I have no problem with doing away with it altogether - give the athletes that have obviously taken a serious academic course load additional options.

    I always thought it was a shame we didn't honor Kahle as a "senior" at the end of the year. I mean, coursework-wise, she and the coaches should have known she could/would graduate. I guess they were lots of balls in the air? What Kahle wanted, if someone was going to transfer out or in, if we would sign another player to 2018?

    Great to get this update on Diani. Very cool of Coach Aston and Coach W.

    Nice to see she wasn't just forgotten after she took a medical retirement.

    Odd turn of events. Tough break for the Mountaineers.



    Any inside info, @SCspur ?

    that was a quick turnaround. Was she going to have to sit out a year if she went through with the move to WVU?

    Dawn simply talked her down from the ledge. Glad she’s staying overall and makes a good back court great and filled with depth.

    No. She would’ve been a grad transfer IIRC.

    From the world of Twitter and Instagram:

    "Areanna Combs, 5-10 sophomore guard out of Oklahoma City, OK, is transferring from Oklahoma State to Eastern Michigan; she started first 14 games of 2017-18 for OK State, averaging 8.5 PPG, before suffering a season-ending injury." https://twitter.com/Raoul_000

    If my memory is correct, I believe she injured her knee when they played us in Austin. She left the court in the 2Q but returned to play in the 2nd half. However, she did not play the remainder of the season after our game.

    Has Anreil Howard ever landed anywhere?

    Not that I have able to find out. She is scheduled to graduate in August, so that might have something to do with it. From what I have read, it's down basically to Miss. State or S. Carolina.

    looks like Tech will have a pretty backcourt player in a couple of years.

    Sorry to lose her. Her attitude and personality and team spirit will be missed. Her game was starting to come together. Best wishes to a nice young lady and ball player.

    Best of luck to Jordan. I’ll miss the energy and enthusiasm she brought to the team. She finished strong last season and added valuable minutes off the bench.

    Sorry to see her go. Loved her enthusiasm and energy. I thought she had a breakout season last year and expected she would make significant contributions this year.

    Best wishes to her.

    Good luck to Jordan. She represented Texas very well these last 3 seasons.

    That's now three power forwards we've lost with Rellah, Khaleann, and Jordan leaving the program for different reasons.

    Maybe Anriel Howard will give us a look as we could use some more experience at power forward with Joyner being the only returning letterman at that position.

    Same here. The missed layups were incredibly frustrating but they were happening less often and having such an animated player who openly expressed such gusto reminds us fans of the fun it is to play/watch the games. Her presence will be missed. Best of luck to her.

    Ahhh man! Well, she did nothing but be a good teammate and represented the school in a very positive way. Best wishes for her and congrats on graduating UT in 3 years.
