Austin Rivers to Visit Texas

8

2011 Winter Park (FL) shooting guard Austin Rivers, who is currently committed to Florida, but has opened up his recruitment, plans on visiting Austin, most likely in late June. Rivers is also considering Duke, North Carolina, Kansas, and Kentucky, as well as the possibility of sticking with his commitment to the Gators. He has no other visits planned, but Duke is reportedly in good shape for his services. The Longhorns already have four commitments in the 2011 class, including two guards in Myck Kabongo and Julien Lewis and a wing in Sheldon McClellan, raising questions about how necessary it is to add another guard to the class. The medical redshirt for Varez Ward extends his eligibility as well. Conventional wisdom has long held that Texas would like to add another big to the class, with Rakeem Christmas the top target, but Rivers may be too good to pass up -- he's ranked no. 6 in the class in the new Rivals rankings. However, the Longhorns are probably a longshot, though the visit could change everything.

Thompson Joins Bradley At Findlay

6

After removal from the St. Benedict's basketball team on Wednesday, Tristan Thompson made the decision to transfer to Findlay Prep, the Henderson, Nevada prep school that 2009 commit Avery Bradley attends. Thompson should be in uniform next week for Findlay's game February 20 against Duncanville in Dallas, 2009 commit Shawn Williams' high school. Thompson has a connection to Findlay because an AAU teammate plays for the Pilots. Former St. Benedict's teammate Myck Kabongo is expected to transfer to Findlay after the season. In a strange twist of fate, Findlay and St. Benedict's may face each other this season, as both are attending the National High School Invitation Tournament in early April. That could get interesting.

Longhorns Secure First 2011 Basketball Commitment ($)

8

Point guard Myck Kabongo of St. Benedict's Prep is now the first commitment for the Longhorn basketball class of 2011. Kabongo stars with 2010 commit Tristan Thompson on their high school and AAU teams. Recruited by Rick Barnes and Rodney Terry, Kabongo has told his AAU coach for some time that he knew Texas was the right place for him, finally committing on his birthday. With transfer Jai Lucas becoming eligible some time next season and Kabongo enrolling during Lucas' senior season (assuming Lucas doesn't lose a year of eligibility for playing in one exhibition game), the future of the Longhorn point guard position is settled for years to come.
