Update: J'Covan Brown Commits to Longhorns

Rick Barnes has landed another top notch talent. Rivals.com$ is reporting that J'Covan Brown, the 6-2 175-pound combo guard from Port Arthur Memorial, has committed to the Texas Longhorns. Brown is rated as a 4-star recruit by Rivals.com and is currently ranked as the 42nd best high school senior in the country and the sixth best shooting guard in the country.

The Horns beat out Oklahoma State and Baylor and apparently overcame the influences of a few people close to Brown who were pushing the guard to sign anywhere but with the Longhorns.

With the potential of DJ Augustin leaving school early, landing Brown was crucial. Congrats Coach Barnes and welcome J'Covan!

[Update] Rivals is reporting that that while J'Covan did verbally commit, he did not sign his letter of intent. The declaration is obviously good news, but the lack of signatures indicates the door is still open.
