The fact that the last nine Longhorns drafted since 2011 are all 6-foot-7 or taller is a testament to Texas’ track record of developing high-quality players in the frontcourt.

But after being drafted 29th overall in 2011, the last guard to hear his name didn’t have to be far from Austin. Former Texas linebacker Corey Joseph had to drive south on I-35 for an hour and a half. The San Antonio Spurs drafted him.
