Texas head basketball coach Shaka Smart and his program received HUGE news this morning in the form of five star McDonald's All-American forward Mohamed Bamba committing to the Longhorns over Kentucky and Duke.

 

 

After losing Jarrett Allen to the NBA Draft as potential lottery pick, the impact of landing Bamba over the Wildcats and Blue Devils can't be understated given the lackluster season that was just experienced in Austin. 

 

This is massive win for Smart and his staff as they continue to try to rebuild the Longhorn hoops program.
