Yancy-Harris Officially a Longhorn

The Longhorns wanted to get a little bit bigger, and better at ball-handling in the backcourt, and might have accomplished both with the signing of 6-foot-4 guard Kendal Yancy-Harris.

A combo guard from Richardson Berkner High School, Yancy-Harris averaged 12.2 points, 6.6 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game as a senior, helping the Rams to a 33-6 record an the Class 5A state semifinals.

For his performance, Yancy-Harris was tapped for the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches Class 5A All-State team and the UIL State Class 5A All-Tournament Team his senior year.

"Kendal is a tough, physical guard who has excellent ball skills and a good basketball IQ," said Texas coach Rick Barnes. "He has the versatility to play all three guard positions, and he brings a winning mentality to our program."


Scouting Report

"[Texas is] getting a guy who is a versatile guard. 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."
