Draft decisions winners/losers: Texas

Shaka Smart lost Jarrett Allen after only one season in Austin, but he'll replace the big man with an upgrade.

ESPN Stats and Information  

With Wednesday's deadline for players to remove their names from the NBA draft approaching, Purdue, UNC, Michigan and UCLA stand to be the most impacted by upcoming decisions.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Big few days for Texas. First Mohamed Bamba commits and then Andrew Jones returns. The key next season could be Tulane transfer Dylan Osetkowski, who will start in the frontcourt alongside Bamba. Can do a little bit of everything on the offensive end.
