Newly hired Texas Longhorns women’s basketball head coach Vic Schaefer landed the first verbal commit of his tenure – transfer and former Penn State Nittany Lions forward Lauren Ebo. It’s unclear whether Ebo will be eligible to compete in 2020-2021, though according to a report in the Austin American-Statesman, the NCAA is currently considering a one-time transfer exception for all athletes. At Penn State last season, the six-foot-four soon-to-be junior averaged 5.3 points and 4.8 rebounds. She’ll join fellow Penn State transfer-turned-Longhorn Karisma Ortiz, an incoming sophomore who sat out last season due to eligibility.
