As spring shifts to summer and we progress into the heart of the select basketball season, here’s a look at Texas players who received offers or made commitments during the month of May.
Marques Bolden, 2016 Desoto center
One of the most coveted prospects in the state, the 6’10 center has finally made his decision. He’ll be joining the already-loaded Duke freshmen class in the fall, and that Blue Devil squad is a near-lock for a Final Four appearance.
Jarred Vanderbilt, 2017 Housotn Episcopal power forward
It’s pretty much a given that Vanderbilt will have an offer from every single Division I program by the time he graduates high
school, but we’ll still report them as they come in. The latest to reach out to Vanderbilt with a scholarship is PAC-12 power Oregon.
Savion Flagg, 2017 Alvin forward
Who’s stock is rising faster than Flagg’s? The 6’7 small forward is one of the hottest prospects on the market right now and Texas has taken notice. The Longhorns joined a strong list of potential destinations for Flagg, including Wake Forest, Pitt, Florida, Purdue and many others.
Ricky Nelson, Jr., 2017 Housotn Episcopal guard
Nelson added four offers, raising his total to nine as he heads into his senior season. The 6’1 guard picked one up from Bucknell, UTSA, Houston Baptist, and Weber State as his stock continues to climb.
Russell Barlow, 2018 Richardson Berkner forward
A top-10 player in the class of 2018, Barlow earned an offer from Tulsa on May 16. He already holds offers from Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Houston and Iowa State.
Riley Abercrombie, 2018 Housotn Clear Lake forward
The Australia native was certainly happy to pick up his first D1 offer, from Incarnate Word. Abercrombie is a 6’7 small forward who should see an increased role on Houston Clear Lake’s varsity squad this season.
Jacob Bonnington, 2016 Sugar Land Clements power forward
A big kid from a small town, the 6’10 Bonnington verbally committed to McNeese State on the third of the month.
Greg Lee, 2016 Houston Westside shooting guard
Lee, a lengthy 6’7 shooting guard, verbally committed to Cal State Bakerfield on May 9th.
Marco Anthony, 2017 San Antonio Holmes guard
Anthony has steadily attracted attention from more and more colleges as he continues to grow as a player. Buffalo offered him at the end of the first week of the month, but his most notable offers come from Iowa State, UTEP and Boise State.
Bryson Robinson, 2016 Mesquite gaurd
The 6’4 guard announced his commitment to New Orleans on May 7.
