Commitment Analysis: Kendal Yancy-Harris National Basketball Recruiting Analyst Brian Snow breaks down the game of the Longhorns' newest commitment.

So, what is Texas getting in new commitment Kendal Yancy-Harris?

"They're getting a guy who is a versatile guard," Snow said. "He has the size to play on the ball or off the ball as a two guard, though he's probably better on the ball. He's somebody who can create, get into the lane and who knows how to score. He's not a great shooter, just a guy who knows how to put the ball in the basket.

"But he usually tends to do it on the ball as opposed to off the ball as a two guard," Snow said.

That could make Yancy-Harris a really good fit opposite a smaller, but more natural shooter, in Javan Felix. Yancy-Harris might be slightly better at ball-handling and running a team, while Felix has a better shooting touch. Pairing the two, or even pairing Isaiah Taylor with Felix, allows Texas to have a bigger point on offense to run the team, while the two guards could flip defensively, with Felix defending the point and the bigger guard handling the opposing team's two guard.

So is Yancy-Harris ready to step in and play right away?

"I think he can because he's physically ready for the college game, and he's a smart player," Yancy-Harris said. "He relies less than some other guys on natural athleticism, so I think he could definitely play right away. I don't think that he'll be a superstar [right away]. But on a deep roster, and a veteran roster like what Texas has, he's somebody who can fill a role and be a piece to the puzzle."
