Guard Kendal Yancy-Harris becomes Rick Barnes' third Class of 2013 commit


Richardson Berkner point guard Kendal Yancy-Harris, a four-star prospect, according to and ESPN, committed to Texas on Saturday. 

Yancy-Harris, who averaged 12.2 points, 6.5 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game last season, announced his pledge to play for the Longhorns via Twitter.

"It's official Just Committed 2 Be a UT LONGHORN !!!," he tweeted Saturday afternoon.

Yancy-Harris joins Orlando product Demarcus Croaker, who committed to Texas earlier this month, and Houston native Isaiah Taylor as the three players to pledge for head coach Rick Barnes and the Longhorns next season. All three are guards.
After being released from his letter of intent with USC, who fired head coach Tim Floyd midway through the season, Yancy-Harris opened up his recruitment. He visited Texas this week and committed Saturday.

Yancy-Harris visited Texas on Thursday, the day after sophomore guard Sheldon McClellan filed paperwork to transfer from the Longhorns. The transfer became official Thursday. Sophomore forward Jaylen Bond also transferred from Texas earlier this month and sophomore point guard Myck Kabongo could declare for the NBA Draft soon.
