Which position group will make the most progress in 2017?

There is a lot of drama going on for Texas basketball recruit Mo Bamba.

A day less than five weeks after McDonald's All-American Mohamed Bamba announced that he was committing to the University of Texas, his estranged half-brother Ibrahim "Abe" Johnson mounted a series of public attacks via the platform of Facebook, culminating in a twenty-two minute poolside video rant against both Bamba and his long-time mentor Greer Love. In the lengthy diatribe, Johnson salaciously accuses his half-brother of committing NCAA violations with his mentor Love.

Texas does not seem concerned about the allegations so move along, nothing to see here.
