Roach will stick with Texas

Kerwin Roach, of Houston (Tex.) North Shore, is sticking with Texas.

Top 100 guard Kerwin Roach will stick with Texas, his father told Scout on Friday.

Roach originally signed with Texas coach Rick Barnes. On Thursday, Texas hired Shaka Smart and the Roach family certainly endorsed the hire.

"Definitely staying," Roach Sr. told Scout. "Never wavered on the commitment."

"[It's a] perfect fit for my son," he added. "The style VCU plays is very similar to how our AAU teams have always played and Snoop has dominated in that style. So as far as our family is concerned we are excited about the fresh start the program is beginning to undertake."

Roach, a four-star prospect, is ranked No. 86 overall in the 2015 class.
