Houston Twins Offered

As the final live period has come to a close, more basketball offers are going out. UTSA recently offered a pair of twins from Houston and we have the update.

Twins are always unique. But when both are 6'7"/6'8", athletic, and posses next level basketball skills, they tend to stand out even more.

Just last week UTSA offered Sean Rhea and Deion Rhea, twins from the Houston area who attend New Caney Porter High School.

"They let me know, coach called me right after we left for Vegas, that Monday. Coach Peck and Coach Henson have been in contact with me the most," said Sean Rhea.

Since the first live period in July, the twins have been getting a lot of attention. Both hold six offers: Wyoming, Incarnate Word, UTSA, Old Dominion, Temple and Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. 

Because of the natural bond with twins, there is the possibly that each would separate ways when picking a college. But according to Sean, that's not their plan.

"We're going to go both as a package deal. We both decided to play together and go as a package deal," said Sean Rhea.

Of the two, Sean is just a bit taller, listed at 6'8". Deion Rhea is listed at 6'7". They both have similar skillsets: they excel in transition, get out in the open floor, and can do damage down low with their backs to the basket. This includes scoring in the low post, or creating havoc on the glass, or blocking shots. They both project as power forwards at the next level. Sean Rhea already has a college frame weighing a sculpted 221lbs. 

Prior to their offer, Rhea had heard about the Roadrunners program, but says he still is not very familiar with it.

"I've heard about UTSA, a lot of kids out here go to that school. I haven't been on the campus or anything, I'm still getting to know about it."

Neither Sean or Deion have a timeline yet for a decision. With the final live period just ending and both are weighing their options as colleges step forward with offers. Sean does say his preference would be to sign early, but he, Deion, and the family have yet to really sit down and discuss it in detail.

One noticeable advantage that the Roadrunners and other in state programs have, is location. Mom and the rest of the family want Sean and Deion to stay close in order to have the chance to see them play and stay within a reasonable distance for any visit or travel.
