Texas AD Mike Perrin projects the new basketball arena to have about 12,800 for basketball seating. Other events, "14k-15k" seat range.
On new arena, Perrin said some "engineering and legal work" ahead on the parking lot south of Mike Myers. But "we know where we are going."
On @1049TheHorn, UT AD Mike Perrin says "yesterday was absolutely huge" for Shaka Smart. "I'm very, very, very optimistic about basketball."
Mo-mentum: Texas edges out Kentucky in battle for 5-star recruit Mohamed Bamba hookem.com/story/mo-mentu…
With the semester over, the smart money is on more Longhorns "choosing to leave the team" as Herman manages the roster.
Texas DL Marcel Southall is also leaving the team, per the school. Two linemen in one day.
Texas DL Jordan Elliott announces on Snapchat that he's transferring after just one year in Austin.
Shaka Smart on Texas' upcoming trip to VCU this season: "That place will be a hornet’s nest."
Shaka Smart says the coaches/players spent a lot of time this spring talking about culture. "Building a feeling of Texas. This is Texas."
Could the Bamba decision affect Andrew Jones' decision to return to Texas? Shaka: "I hope so."
Shaka Smart says G Andrew Jones still has some NBA workouts ahead. "He's really gone into this process with big eyes, big ears."
Up front, Texas will have Bamba, Banks, Osetkowski for @Darrin_Horn. "I’m excited about the group of bigs we have. I know coach Horn is."
As for Texas rebounding next season in winning, Shaka said, "There’s very strong motivation on my part to take a big step in that area."
Shaka: "Mo was watching very, very closely this year to see how Jarrett grew and how much he improved."
Texas coach Shaka Smart with a huge understatement. ''It's a great day for us, for our team, for our program."
Awaiting Shaka Smart presser. He's now signed 4 players off the Team USA U-18 team he coached last summer: Allen, Banks, Coleman, Bamba.

As Bamba learned more about Texas, "the more I realized this was an ideal platform for me to pursue my many goals."
Spoke too soon. Mo Bamba paperwork is now official, per Texas.
For Shaka Smart to have a presser scheduled means the Horns already have Mo Bamba's paperwork in hand, or will within the hour.
Landing Mo Bamba is a potential season-changer for the Horns. Now, all Shaka needs is for Andrew Jones to come back. No word yet, though.

Nah, the NBA lottery's not rigged. Not at all.

Jarrett Allen to Texas fans: 'First thing I'll say is thank you' hookem.com/story/jarrett-…
NBA teams spend time getting to know Texas freshman Jarrett Allen hookem.com/story/nba-team…
RT @NBADraft: Hook em @TexasMBB! #NBACombine https://t.co/ajhHDkTf0P
Asked what he wanted to stress about his time at Texas, Jarrett Allen said "How supportive Coach Smart was through this whole process."
Allen is a Texas kid. Told there was a team in Houston that could use him, Allen didn't flinch: "There's a team in Dallas and San Antonio."
Jarrett Allen's met with a dozen teams. Any favorite? "My first goal is to make it to the NBA." You been practicing that? "I have, I have."

If Texas' Andrew Jones can 'crack the first round,' he'll stay in the NBA draft hookem.com/story/texas-an…
KD said to stay home, skip the NBA combine. Listening to all the fake clapping coming from the weight area, I understand his rationale.
Andrew Jones is luring Mo Bamba: "I’ve heard rumors that my decision to come back to school is going to affect whether he comes to Texas."
Full story coming, but it's clear that Andrew Jones hears all the doubters who think "I shouldn't even be here." That has stoked his fire.
Texas freshman Andrew Jones said if he received a first-round grade, he would stay in the NBA draft.
Shaka said to make sure players get info from actual NBA execs. "There’s Magic Johnson, who is the president of the Lakers. He has a pick."
K-State's Wesley Iwandu said he's already met with the Spurs. "I feel like that's the standard of the league."
Interesting to see Shaka standing next to Calipari here in Chicago. Best I can tell, they are not comparing Mo Bamba notes.
Lots to like about Andrew Jones' first 10 minutes. Hustle, no fear going to hoop, a near-steal in open floor. 4 pts as Shaka watches nearby.
None of us know what kind of pro career Frank Mason III will have. But no way in hell will I bet against him.
First game today has some Big 12 flavor. Andrew Jones and ISU's Monte Morris will battle KU's Frank Mason and KSU's Wesley Iwundu.
Faces in the crowd here in Chicago: Larry Bird, Jerry Stackhouse (coaching Jones' team) and Imani and Paul Boyette to support fellow Horns.
It'll also be interesting to see how the Big 12 fares in the NBA draft after an NFL stinker. Allen, Mason, Motley, Morris, Svi, Iwundu here.
Jones has a 8-3.5 standing reach, 6-6.5 wingspan, 6-3 with no shoes, 185 pounds. He's expected to play in the 2 p.m. game.
Allen is listed with a 9-1.5 standing reach, 7-5.25 wingspan, 6-9 with no shoes, 233.6 pounds.
