Long rumored to be coming, Vanderbilt’s Dylan Disu makes it official by committing to Texas

Alabama forward Herb Jones (1) defends as Vanderbilt forward Dylan Disu (1) penetrates into the lane as the Crimson Tide hosted Vandy Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, in Coleman Coliseum.

In a move that’s been expected for weeks, Pflugerville Hendrickson product Dylan Disu is transferring to Texas from Vanderbilt.

Disu, the 6-foot-9 sophomore forward who averaged 15 points and 9.2 rebounds last season, announced the move Monday on social media. He had six double-doubles and shot an impressive 49.2% from the floor overall.

Disu was on track to lead the SEC in rebounding for the season before suffering a meniscus injury in February. He played 17 games last season.

The Longhorns now have an impressive frontcourt tandem in Disu and Utah forward Timmy Allen, a two-time Pac-12 selection. The Longhorns could have even stronger rebounding potential if veteran senior Jericho Sims decides to return to school. There have been no announcements about his plans, though.
