It’s amazing how much a week can change the outlook for a team. A week ago, Texas had a very good recruiting class and questions at shooting guard; now Shaka Smart and his crew have a great recruiting class and zero questions at 4 of their 5 starting spots. Andrew Jones pulled his name out of the NBA draft, clearing up the last remaining question for the 2017-2018 roster. While not entirely unexpected based on the background chatter your incredibly impressive hoops writer is attuned to, nevertheless it is good news for all of the fans of burnt orange.
The screengrab from Shaka Smart’s latest media availability says it all.
In case it doesn’t say it all, we said plenty more on the Pretend We’re Football podcast we recorded prior to Andrew Jones’ announcement.
