    Certainly great news, but I'm still not too enthusiastic about next year. We lose Allen, Cleare and probably Mack so we're still going to be starting all over again at the F/C positions. We'll basically be right back where we started this year with youth all over again.

    Hate to be so negative, but we're not anywhere near where we can reload like UK, Duke, UNC.

    I was going to post "so you are saying there is hope on the horizon?" but then I read this post so I guess never mind then. :(

    Anyone think this may help convince Allen to stay another year?

    The problem is with players like Cleare and the 1 & done's like Allen we're never going to finish loading. KU, UK get 5* players to stay 2 or more years, but we can't because we aren't a legendary program like them. If either one of these 2 were coming back I would feel good, and ecstatic if Allen pulls a shocker. But we need some more players like a Damian James or Gary Johnson.

    Someone explain why a KU gets 5 star to stay more than 1 year.
    If a player is draft able high to mid first round why stay more than a year?
    Even with insurance why take the Chance?

    Is it that the player gains more valuable playing time relative to the NBA the extra year results in them going THAT much higher?

    Welcome Matt. We can not wait to watch you run the team.:bevo::hookem::bevo:

    "Future Texas guard Jase Febres made the biggest jump among Longhorn signees in the final Top247 basketball rankings for the 2017 class, moving 15 spots up.

    But all of Texas' four signees made an appearance in the updated rankings released Wednesday, including two in the top 100 and all four in the top 200. Power forward Jericho Sims sat in the highest spot at No. 33, down one from the previous rankings, while point guard Matt Coleman sat close behind at No. 65, a three-spot improvement.

    Forward Royce Hamm, out of Houston, moved up one spot to No. 191.

    Shaka Smart and the Longhorns still hold the No. 6 recruiting class in the nation and the No. 1 in the Big 12, according to the 247Sports Composite. They have an average ranking of 0.9671.

    Another notable name on the list is five-star power forward Mohamed Bamba, who is uncommitted and currently has Texas high on his list. He came in at No. 2 in the rankings, a one spot jump...."
