It’s a normal thing that, after the two April Evaluation Periods, Texas will have identified some players who they think can help them and a bevy of sophomore/junior offers will get handed out.
This year, obviously, has been no different.
AUSTIN -- Shaka Smart and the Horns picked up a big time commitment when Mt. Saint Mary's transfer guard, Elijah Long, gave Texas his pledge this afternoon.
Long, a 6'0" guard who averaged 15 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists for the Mount.
As you all are likely aware, Andrew Jones made it official last night and declared for the draft meaning both of Texas' high level freshmen (along with Jarrett Allen) have submitted their names to the NBA without hiring an agent.
Uhh...I blacked out for about a half hour there and, it would appear, Texas won a game away from the Erwin Center. Actually, that doesn’t sound right...but...oh…nope, it seems to be accurate.
