He also lists Oregon, USC, Arizona, UCLA and Kansas in his top six.
Stanley is the No. 15-ranked recruit according to 247 Sports composite rankings. He is the No.1-rated California basketball player and No.2-rated shooting guard.
Texas has had three straight loaded recruiting classes and are set to produce its second-straight NBA first-round pick when Mo Bamba is likely taken near the top of June’s NBA Draft. The Longhorns have a top-10 ranked class arriving this fall and one that was buoyed by the late commitment of Courtney Ramey last month.
So far the Longhorns don’t have any commitments for the 2019 class.
