He had offers from numerous schools and he chose the Longhorns and Shaka Smart over the likes of Kentucky, Duke, Michigan, Arizona and UConn among others. The 7’0″, 216-pound big man is the new prototypical stretch four or five as he’s just as able to post up as he is to step out and hit the three. He’s a huge addition for Smart and his staff and should give them serious momentum in future cycles.
He made his announcement in a post on The Players’ Tribune and talked about growing up in Harlem, N.Y as well as what it means to be headed west to Austin.
