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.
