A small adjustment for Mo Bamba can pay off
American-Statesman columnist Cedric Golden thinks Texas freshman Mo Bamba will be great one day. He’s just not there yet. What he can do right now to help the Longhorns is operate as a garbage man of sorts, writes Golden. Rebounding, altering shots and making plays that don’t show up in the stats can help Texas improve its game. A little more aggressiveness can go a long way. Even coach Shaka Smart thinks Bamba can afford to be more aggressive in general.
A guide to watching high school stars committed to Texas

Foster, a 5-star safety, and Angleton will face Manvel at NRG Stadium in Class 5A, Division I. Dicker, a kicker at Lake Travis, will try to advance over Katy in San Antonio.
