Cypress Creek point guard Rori Harmon commits to joining Texas’ 2021 recruiting class

Posted April 24th, 2020


New Texas coach Vic Schaefer has found a quarterback for his basketball team.

Cypress Creek junior Rori Harmon gave a verbal commitment to Texas on Friday. ESPN HoopGurlz has rated the 5-6 Harmon as the Class of 2021’s 20th-best recruit and sixth-best point guard. Texas last signed a top-20 recruit in 2018 when Charli Collier and Sedona Prince became Longhorns.

During her junior year, Harmon was both an all-state honoree and District 17-6A’s MVP. She averaged 15.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game. Harmon tallied 16 points, 11 steals and 10 assists in a 78-24 win over Houston Stratford on Jan. 28.

Cypress Creek went 41-1 this winter with its only loss coming in the Class 6A championship game. Harmon, however, reportedly missed the state tournament due to a violation of team rules.

Harmon joins Dallas Bishop Lynch guard Paige Bradley in UT’s 2021 recruiting class. The daughter of former UT all-conference honoree Amie Smith, Bradley committed to then-coach Karen Aston in August of 2019.
