Westlake standout Brock Cunningham commits to Longhorns

Posted August 4th, 2017


Texas coach Shaka Smart’s impressive 2018 class acquired some local flavor with Friday’s commitment from Westlake forward Brock Cunningham.

Cunningham, a 6-foot-6, four-star recruit, picked Texas over offers from schools such as Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Houston. The incoming senior averaged a double-double — 14.7 points, 11.3 rebounds — for Westlake this past season while earning Player of the Year honors from the American-Statesman this past season.

A transfer from St. Stephen’s, Cunningham will soon enter his third season as a starter for the Chaps. He has helped Westlake reach two consecutive Class 6A regional finals

“Brock’s best attribute is that he’s a winner,” Westlake coach Robert Lucero told the Statesman earlier this year. “He’s very versatile. He’s an elite rebounder; not a lot of people can chase down rebounds like he does. And he’s one of the toughest kids you’ll ever find.”

Staff writer Thomas Jones contributed to this report.
