Jordan Barnett, a forward from Christian Brothers College High School, in St. Louis, has signed to play with the Longhorns next season.
The 6-foot-7, 200-pound Barnett averaged 17 points and 8 rebounds a game last season as a junior.
Earlier in the week, Barnett gave indications that he was wavering on his commitment and might not sign until the spring, according to a St. Louis newspaper.
