2. Matt Coleman
The Fab Five had Jalen Rose and Juwan Howard. Setting aside the position comparison, Matt Coleman will be that supporting star who can also be a leading man.
Matt Coleman is an elite PG who will be handed the keys to the car. Dish to Mo Bamba in the paint? Set up Andrew Jones on the wing? Create for himself off the dribble?
If Mo Bamba did not come to Texas, the Longhorns still would have been a dangerous NCAA Tournament team because of Coleman’s ability to completely transform this team.
Add Mo Bamba to this recruiting class with Matt Coleman and you have the makings of a Final Four team. This will be a dangerous combination, creating more opportunities for other players because of how much attention they will receive.
