Five years of recruiting finally paid off for Shaka Smart as he landed 4-star point guard Matt Coleman over the likes of Duke, Kansas, UConn, and a number of other high-profile schools. Coleman’s abilities are well-chronicled in this BON piece by Cody Daniel so I’ll save you the repetition, but suffice it to say he is a quality point guard that fills an area of need. He isn’t a TJ Ford-type generational talent, but he’s a good, natural point guard whose impact is amplified by how he helps shuffle the theoretical 2017 Texas lineup into their more natural positions.
In a sea of frustration, this commitment is welcome news. Enjoy it, Horns fans.
