Greg Brown III Commits To Texas, Passes On G League Select Offer

Apr 24, 2020 4:41 PM

Greg Brown III has committed to the University of Texans.

Brown turned down offers from Kentucky, Auburn, Memphis and Michigan to attend his father's alma mater. Brown was the 2020 Texas Mr. Basketball.

Brown also had an offer paying over $300,000 from the building G League select program.

Brown is the ninth ranked player in the class of 2020.

"It's a real hard decision to be honest," Brown said. "It took me until the final hour to really decide where I want to go. Five schools gave me a great opportunity and the G-League gave me a great opportunity. It was great visiting all schools and campuses. The coaches were great and the players were great. I just reached out to family and friends and I can't thank them enough for helping me with this decision because it was very, very tough.

"It was a long process. I decided in the final hour today after I woke up this morning. But I am happy to say I am committing to the University of Texas. Hook 'em Horns."

Shaka Smart To Remain As Texas Coach Next Season

Mar 28, 2020 2:42 PM

Shaka Smart will return as the head coach of University of Texas next season.

"Shaka's our coach. Nothing's changed. We won five of the last six down the stretch, finished third in the conference. We have a good team coming back. Nothing's changed on my end," said Athletic Director Chris Del Conte.

Smart was reportedly on the hot seat due to not making the NCAA tournament in two of the previous three seasons.

Texas has yet to win a tournament game with Smart as the head coach.

Smart would have been owed $10 million if he were fired this spring.
