Saturday afternoon Houston head coach Kelvin Sampson landed his first verbal commitment in the Class of 2016, as 6-foot-4 shooting guard Armoni Brooks announced that he’ll be a Cougar via his Twitter account. Brooks, who’s from Round Rock, Texas, made the decision to remain in his home state while officially visiting the American Athletic Conference program.
His decision comes despite having visits scheduled for Kansas State (September 10) and Creighton (September 16) over the next two weekends in September.
As a junior at McNeil HS, Brooks was a first team Region II all-region selection by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches, and he played his grassroots basketball for the THP Elite program.
Brooks’ commitment gives Houston additional depth at a position where they’ll lose two seniors at the end of the 2015-16 season in LeRon Barnes and Eric Weary Jr., and the presence of redshirt junior Damyean Dotson will help Houston’s newest commit with his adjustment to the college game.
