Texas made a big impression on 6-6 shooting guard Sylven Landesberg during a recent trip to Austin. As first reported at Rivals ($), the New York city guard made an impromptu visit to Austin, with both him and his father coming away wowed.
Not half-bad, Rick. Not half-bad.
Rivals is also reporting that Landesberg is looking closely at St. Johns, Virginia, and Georgia Tech, but Texas is clearly at or near the top of the list right now. Landesberg would give Texas some much needed length on the wing were he to join the Longhorns.
Landesberg is ranked as the country's #38 prospect in the 2008 class by Rivals.
