Shooting Guard Jase Febres Commits to Texas Longhorns Hoops

New, 8 comments

Jase Febres is a Texas Longhorn. The Houston Westfield shooting guard is currently ranked 60th in the 247 Sports Composite rankings. He officially visited Texas on September 10 and chose the Longhorns over the Houston Cougars, Baylor Bears, and Stanford Cardinal.

Shooter is the first word that comes to mind when watching Febres light up his YouTube reels. He's the guy that, in 20 years, will just run 3-point line to 3-point line and spot up shoot his younger nemeses to death. There's some evolution to his scoring diversity in his highlights, and he'll need to become a better slasher-scorer to make a significant impact in college. As is, his ability to hit a 3 is already a plus skill. My Scipio cross-racial comparison matrix marks him as a nouveau-riche Matt McQuaid. In other words, I'm a fan.

I foresee Febres getting playing time right away as a freshman, serving as a microwave bench shooter. Not much context on his ability to D, but that's a prerequisite to getting playing time in Shaka Smart's system. Febres is a great take as a multi-year developer. If things break right, he's taking over at the 2 as Eric Davis gets ready to play professional ball. Welcome aboard, Jase. Hook 'em.
