Texas recruit Cameron Ridley will sign his letter of intent and play for the Longhorns next season, Ridley told ESPN’s Dave Telep.

Ridley is a 6-10, 230-pound center from Bush High School in Fort Bend. He verbally committed to UT in January of 2011 but did not sign a National Letter of Intent during the fall signing period. Ridley can sign on April 11.

The Longhorns have two forwards currently on the roster, so Ridley will add depth to the frontcourt. Jonathan Holmes and Jaylen Bond are the lone forwards returning next season.

Ridley is a McDonald’s All-American this year.
