After all that drama, she is going to Texas after all. She knew it all along.
I have it on good authority that she never visited any other schools.
Texas would prefer if she redshirted this year anyway. Texas is going to stink this year, with or without Tara. If Flo is able to build the program the way they'd like, they can be very competitive again by Tara's 5th year.
You have no knowledge of what Texas "prefers" for Tara. I pray that you are in no way associated with Texas. If you are, I am ashamed for the rest of us Texas supporters.
It is simple math, you fool. If Texas is projected to score 3 points at NCAAs this year, why would they waste a year of Tara's eligibility? Schools do it hundreds of thousands of times all over the country - redshirt a young player so they can be more competitive their senior year. Or time the redshirts of certain athletes so that you have a stacked team for a year.
For example, if your best basketball player is a senior and is the only senior on the team. It would be wise to redshirt him for a year so that the team can be much better the next year.
In fact, Texas would be dumb to let Tara compete this year, even if she was immediately eligible.
