Thanks to COVID-19, the summer recruiting schedule has been thrown all out of whack. That hasn’t stopped the Texas men’s basketball staff from picking up commitments, though.
Coach Shaka Smart gained his third recruit for the 2021 class Sunday when forward David Joplin announced his decision on Twitter. The 6-foot-7 standout from Brookfield, Wisc., was also considering Iowa State, Georgetown, Minnesota and Vanderbilt.

The Longhorns also have commitments from forward Keeyan Itejere (6-9) and guard Emarion Ellis (6-5).
Texas’ class currently ranks third among all Big 12 teams and 24th nationally, according to 247Sports.
