KeyShawn Feazell is a name more and more programs across the country are becoming familiar with and one the Texas Longhorns will play host to Saturday.

Prior to adding a Texas offer to a list that includes Baylor, Iowa State, Alabama ad Mississippi State, Feazell told 247Sports he liked the Longhorns style of play and player development. When asked what he wanted in a college program, Feazell described exactly what he'd get in Austin, per 247Sports.

"I want a great basketball environment, where you can get up and down, spread the floor and shoot from the outside."

Feazell, an unranked power forward out of Monticello (MS), will be taking his first official visit to Austin, but said he also wants to visit Baylor, Alabama and Mississippi State.

Despite the power forward lable, Feazell is someone that can contribute in a stretch role and knock down looks from the perimeter; something quite typical in a Shaka Smart offense. If Smart makes Feazell a priority, it may mean he's a Longhorn before long, as Feazell said he hopes to commit before his senior season starts.
