Arguably Shaka Smart’s top graduate transfer target is set to tour the Forty Acres.

After naming the Texas Longhorns as a finalist just days ago, Albany graduate transfer guard Joe Cremo will officially visit Texas over the weekend, per a report from Orangebloods’ Dustin McComas.

Along with the Longhorns, Cremo is also still considering Oregon, Creighton, Gonzaga and Penn State.

As a junior, the 6-foot-4 wing led Albany in scoring and assists with 17.8 points and 3.8 assists per game, and also added 4.1 rebounds per contest. In three seasons with the Great Danes, Cremo totaled 1,469 points, 440 rebounds, 300 assists, and shot a career 42 percent from the perimeter and 85 percent from the free throw line.

Cremo will be eligible immediately at the school of his choice.

With Texas seeing Jacob Young and Eric Davis Jr. each depart from the program, Kerwin Roach II testing the NBA waters, and Andrew Jones’ future at Texas uncertain, Cremo would almost certainly become an key contributor in Smart’s rotation from day one. Not to mention, his ability to serve as a secondary ball handler and facilitator and success shooting from the perimeter would be a much-needed addition to a perimeter rotation currently shrouded in uncertainty.

This story will be updated.
