Texas earned its first Class of 2018 commitment on Friday as four-star forward Brock Cunningham pledged to the Longhorns.
Sitting at just outside the top 100 in the Rivals Class of 2018 national rankings at No. 109, the 6-foot-7 Cunningham is a high-motor forward who regularly put up double-doubles during both the high school and grassroots seasons.
As a junior, Cunningham put up 14.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per game for Austin Westlake High School as he is staying local to play in the Big 12. Also productive playing in the adidas Gauntlet, Cunningham has an intriguing skill level that continued to expand as the spring and summer wore on.
This is a quality start to the 2018 class from head coach Shaka Smart, as he continues to recruit the state of Texas hard while also maintaining a focus on national recruiting.
