    Correct! Not only was the article worded poorly, I was also 4 or 6 palomas deep lol. Thanks for the catch team.

    So who was it? Fellow Canadian and former men's hoopster, Tristan Thompson? That's my only guess.

    Regarding Lattimore, with classes beginning in the next week or so, I tend to believe her choice has already been made. Perhaps the announcement is awaiting the completion of the acceptance process by whatever school she chose. Sure would be nice to see her in burnt orange... Hoping for it!

    Baylor board reporting she's going there, citing an inside trusted source. We'll see ...

    Welp. The reason why I don't pay attention to what recruits put on social media.

    Considering the Longhorns have Sophomore and Freshman PFs both ranked higher while both of Baylor's are seniors, there is an easier route to playing time but it's still Baylor/Waco.

    She would be taking a HUGE GAMBLE on an UNPROVEN coach, big uncertainty about future conference affiliation and players!!! Baylor very possibly will end up in a sht—y conf or mid major. They lose Nalyssa Smith and Jordan Lewis after this year, possibly Queen Egbo. They only have 7 or 8 players now after losing their only recruit this year, and have NO highly ranked players for next year. Their future is very uncertain on a number of levels. I believe in Vic Schaefer and what he is doing with our team, and, specifically our front court personnel. IF she chooses Baylor, I have no words....good luck to her!!!

    Playing time is very important. And the coach may be unproven on the college level but she'll have the most talent of any team in the conf.

    The most experienced talent perhaps... but not "the most" talent IMO.

    And we’ll just see how that works out. Saying they have the most talent in the conference is a reach. While young, I like the talent Vic has assembled at UT and wouldn’t even consider trading it for what Baylor has..... We got THREE McDonald’s All Americans and two JUCO All Americans....PLUS Matharu....AND Chevalier, Ebo and Allen Taylor.....I’m good with that

    I also like our roster -- top to bottom -- compared to the rest of the Big 12. Iowa State is has a talented team also.

    I don't want to bog down the thread because it is about recruiting but there's not a front court in the conference that can match-up with Egbo and Smith. Experienced talent is the most important and they have that, and will be even better in that area with Lattimore.

    I think Mathru is just as good and may be an even better scorer than Celeste but I don't think she makes up for the size, defensive ability, versatility, and rebounding that Celeste brought. The lack of size in the backcourt and on wing may be an issue. I like the front court, especially with a healthy Gaston but it's not on the level of Baylor's.

    Amazing news!!!!!!! Long time Lady Longhorn follower, first time poster. I just read on The Boneyard that the Lattimore-to-Baylor post on the BU site was probably from a troll.

    I thought that post looked a little peculiar when it contained some of the language that I used in a previous post regarding waiting on university acceptance, etc.

    It feels great to be on the winning side of a big recruiting battle. The two-deep of Lattimore, Moore, Ebo and Gaston at the 4/5 positions is comprised of four physical, strong and athletic players. Although each player has their unique skill set , there’s not going to be a big drop off with substitutions. Vic is building a team that gives him strategic options to play depending upon the opponent.

    Looking forward to the season getting started.

    IMO she can be a difference maker without even touching the ball with her height and length as a shot blocker. It also allows the coach to play small depending on the match up, playing her at the 4 and Gaston at the 5.

    Unbelievably good news! No way Vic can have a 7 or 8 man rotation like he has had in the past! He’ll be sending those studs out on the floor in waves! Most opponents will feel like they’ve been ambushed!
    He can’t complete the schedule because no one will play the Horns with their up tempo, press, press, press style!! I would expect more home and away games from power 5 teams to finish out the schedule. Not many non power 5 teams will come to Austin, like the cupcakes Aston scheduled in the past, for a single game. Even for the big pay out they would get. OMG let the season begin! Bring on Stanford!
