With Texas potentially losing a pair of guards to the NBA draft, the Longhorns got a commitment from point guard Cory Joseph on Friday.
Joseph, the No. 16 rated prospect in the Class of 2010, picked Texas over Connecticut, Minnesota, UNLV and Villanova.
"I had a great relationship with coach [Rick] Barnes and all the staff and players," Joseph said. "I feel that it's the best fit for me overall."
Tristan Thompson, who played with Joseph at Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., and on the Grassroots Canada AAU team, has also signed with Texas. Both Thompson and Joseph were named McDonald's All-Americans.
"It's good that we'll be able to play together again," Joseph said. "We had a lot of success over the past two years. We won the national championship twice. We're going to have a great time."
