    Default Texas sophomore C Will Baker entering NCAA Transfer Portal

    Could he be headed to Spokane, and the Olynyk Clinic? All Will has to do is look at the progress Drew is making at Gonzaga.

    Wasn't Will a top 50, and considered a recruiting coup for Shaka? I've also noticed how Kamaka Hepa has fallen off a cliff in Austin. I just don't get it with the Texas football and basketball teams. They really don't have to leave the state to fill their squads with 4 and 5 star players. Kids grow up wanting to play for A&M or UT, it's in their blood. IIRC, we were basically fighting A&M for Drew, it was that close.

    Roughly half of the top 25 high school football teams in the nation come from Texas...like I said, it's really puzzling.

    I am so thankful to be a Zag.

    “My goal has been and remains to meaningfully contribute to the success of my team,” Baker later added. “At Texas, I wasn’t maximizing my potential. I gradually came to realize that there is another place that’s a better fit, and now I am trusting God to lead me to the right program.”
    That's a pretty damning quote, if you ask me.

    What a crock. Shaka is quite the flim flam man, turning a lightning in a bottle F4 run into generational wealth, and not much else.

    These are the type of problems that arise when all your players are good. Coaches will have to walk a fine line in keeping everyone happy.

    Hepa we looked at very hard. Such potential! Sounds like he’s just sitting but is a great cheerleader. ??? Lotta potential down the drain.

    Our recruiting was in a major slump during that period. Lots of misses, one we avoided
