National Review‘s Eliana Johnson has the scoop:

After casting his vote in Texas’s primary at Houston’s West Gray Community Center, Cruz told reporters that after 11 states go to the polls today, he and Trump will shoot ahead in the delegate race.  “I think tomorrow morning you’re going to see a clear choice with two candidates both with a big chuck of delegates and the remainder of the candidates with very very few,” he said.

Cruz’s attention remains focused on rival Marco Rubio, and he essentially called Rubio and the rest of his challengers to drop out of the race. “To get to the nomination you need 1,237 delegates. And so I will say for any candidate who wakes up tomorrow morning who has not won any states, for any candidate who wakes up tomorrow morning who has a negligible number of delegates, I think it’s time to start thinking about coming together and unifying and presenting a clear choice,” he said.

Makes sense to me, but since Rubio has nothing to lose by staying in, don’t expect him to take Cruz’s advice.
