A coveted late-rising recruit with length, motor and athleticism. He’s a high four star and a big get for Shaka Smart and the Longhorn program. He’s from the Bahamas, is a good student, and the former track athlete didn’t pick up a basketball in a formal game structure until he was 15 years old. Putting him in the company of players like Olajuwon, Nash and Duncan. No habits means no bad habits.

He’ll join SG Donovan Williams to form the foundation of an already promising 2019 class.
