Pick is in for Papapetrou

The decision is in for Ioannis Papaetrou who is headed to the Big XII

It was a tough recruiting battle between Texas and Kansas, but at the end of the day the Longhorns won out for Ioannis Papapetrou.

Melbourne (Fla.) Florida Air Academy head coach Aubin Goporo informed Scout.com via text message that Papapetrou committed to Texas.

"He committed to Texas an hour ago," said Goporo.

The recruitment of Papapetrou was headed by assistant coach Rob Lanier who originally began recruiting the kid during his time at Florida. Texas expects Papaetrou to bring some size on the wing, and a kid who is a natural scorer.

Papapetrou joins a loaded Texas recruiting class that ranks No. 3 in the nation currently.

Joining Papapetrou in the class are bigs Connor Lammert, Cameron Ridley, and Prince Ibeh. Also in the class is point guard Javan Felix.
