No. 31 Jr Gerald Liddell Commits To Texas

Watch No. 31 Jr Gerald Liddell Highlights (VIDEO)

ESPN No. 31 ranked high school junior Gerald Liddell has committed to Texas.   The 6-7 small forward averaged 19.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.7 blocks, and 1.2 steals this season for Byron P. Steele II HS (Cibolo, TX).   Liddell also had a strong summer on the Nike EYBL circuit, averaging 11.9 points and 6.1 rebounds for RM5 Elite this year.   "It just feels like home out there in Austin," Liddell told Scout of the Longhorns. "It’s 45 minutes away from my house. My whole family can come and enjoy seeing me play. That was ultimately a big deciding factor."   "I see myself fitting in really well," added Liddell. "He’s [head coach Shaka Smart] getting into the mode where he’s pressing and moving fast paced. Anybody that gets a rebound can push it and that’s a key component of my game.”   NBC Sports’ Terrence Payne believes that Liddell is a great fit for Texas.   “The combination of size, versatility, athleticism, and length are ideal for a Shaka Smart team,” Payne wrote. “He’ll be able to play multiple positions and should fit in nicely for an up-tempo team that likes to play in transition.”   The Longhorns beat out the likes of Arizona, Kansas, Cal, Baylor, Iowa State, and Houston to land Liddell.   At Texas, Liddell will join fellow 2018 recruit No. 89 Brock Cunningham.     For more basketball news go to http://www.blacktoptv.com/
