Texas traveled to Sugar Land to take on the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns in a midweek match-up at Constellation Field.

I jump on 4th and 5 with Will Baizer and we talk Cameron Rising and some baseball. We welcome recent commits Byron Hobbs and Reese Moore to the show, but not before we speak with everyone’s favorite family at the moment, Byron’s parents Paul and Natalia Vaughns
Texas looked to take the series from the University of New Orleans on a dreary day with the wind blowing in.

Following the addition of Oak Hill (VA) point guard Matt Coleman, who officially signed with Texas this past Wednesday, head coach Shaka Smart called Coleman’s addition part of “an important stretch of days for us.” Coleman joins the 2017 class, but Smart is not through recruiting this spring as the Longhorns are in the mix for elite recruit Mohamed Bamba.
