Barnes Lands Another Top Class

Basketball season hasn't even started yet, and the Horns just keep getting stronger. Coach Rick Barnes is quietly securing yet another top recruiting class. On Monday, 6-10 forward Dexter Pittman verbally committed to Texas. If you think Mike Williams is big, wait until you get a look at Pittman. According to Scout.com, Pittman is a solid 320 pounds and is listed as the 51st best high school senior. The official signing period does not begin until November 9th, so all commitments thus far are only verbal, and therefore non-binding.

Texas has already secured four commitments: Kevin Durant, Justin Mason, Harrison Smith, and Pittman. Scout.com has Durant as a five star recruit and the top high school small forward in the country; Pittman and Smith as four star recruits; and Mason as a three star recruit. This season, Texas is the pre-season second ranked team, with a legitimate shot at the Final Four. Horns fans want to cut down the nets this March, but if we don’t reach our ultimate goal this season, hope will be resurrected with these four guys joining the squad next season.
