5-star recruit shooting guard Cassius Stanley includes Texas in top-6

Posted May 15th, 2018


The recruiting momentum continues for Shaka Smart and the Texas Longhorns as 5-star California prospect Cassius Stanley included the Longhorns in his top six on Monday.

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.
