Horns pick up hoops commit

Rick Barnes' Horns added commitment No. 2 for the fall signing period that begins this Wednesday:

The Horns have picked up a commitment from 6-2 combo guard Kenton Paulino out of Los Angeles. Last season, Paulino earned Los Angeles area player of the year honors (as picked by a local newspaper) as a senior at Fremont High and is currently in prep school at Maine Central Institute. Paulino, along with Westlake big man Brad Buckman, is expected to make his verbal pledge official this Wednesday with an LOI when the fall basketball signing period begins. Texas has two available scholarships based on the current numbers, but Rick Barnes and Co. may not be done yet. Look for the Horns to be in the market for another player during the spring signing period.
