It will be interesting to see what type of players he will be able to get in such a talent filled state.Walton used the threat of the Texas job as leverage to get Florida to cough up a bigger contract.

Mike White likely asked Oregon as well to match and they just said 'No'. Roster-wise the cupboard may not be totally bare in Texas, but it is certainly not as full as it currently is at Oregon.
