    Wowwwwwww!

    What an incredible turnaround for Barnes. The guy who was criticized heavily for losing so many players last season and not being able to recruit locally had a great resurgence of a season which led to getting the #1 player in Texas.

    Next year is going to be a HUGE year for the Rockets (probably with a third all-star) and UT. Great time to be a fan of both.

    Congrats to UT. This kid is a big time prospect.

    Great get. Hopefully Barnes figures out how to use him effectively on offense.

    He would've been a better fit at SMU. Oh well, congrats Longhorns!

    great pickup.

    him and Ridley should be highly formidable defensively

    They're moving Holmes to SF; he and Ridley and Turner may be the best frontline in the country.

    Taylor and Martez Walker (if his late season shooting improvement was real) is an awesome backcourt too. Felix will go to the bench, I assume.

    He won't, but we can still hope that Turner is able to figure it out on his own.

    Big congrats and hats off to John Lucas for recruiting him.

    Could be good times again like the KD days. This guy is a BEAST. He has it all on offense. Inside, outside, post game, athleticism. I can't wait to watch him. Even if the Horns don't win anything with him, it's much better than the last 2-3 years of watching Horns basketball.

    Even if Turner never reaches the levels of KD/Aldridge awesomeness, what an absolutely huge pickup! Stark, stark contrast to where the program was a year ago. Kudos to Barnes for finding the issues in his program and remedying them as well as possible. I remember last offseason, the buzz within the program was that Barnes finally had a roster of guys who had bought in. At the time, I just wrote that off as typical offseason optimism, but it proved to be true.

    Yep, they've got to find somebody who can hit a jumpshot. If I was Felix, Walker and Taylor I'd be shooting about 3000 3's a day this offseason.
