From the SID office:


AUSTIN, Texas â€“ A pair of high school basketball standouts have signed National Letters of Intent to play basketball next season at The University of Texas, head coach Rick Barnes announced WednesdayEric Davis (Saginaw, Mich.) and Kerwin Roach (Houston, Texas) will join the Longhorns for the 2015-16 season. 


“Our entire staff is pleased to welcome both Eric and Kerwin into our program,” Barnes said. “We wanted to add to our overall skill level and playmaking in the backcourt, and we needed to add length and athleticism to our backcourt. We also wanted to improve our perimeter scoring and shooting. And we needed to make sure we found individuals with high character, toughness and confidence. We accomplished all of those with the additions of Eric and Kerwin.”


Davis (6-3, 172), a guard from Saginaw Arthur Hill High School who plays under head coach Greg McMath, is ranked as the No. 41 overall prospect in the nation by ESPN, No. 42 by 247Sports and No. 53 by Rivals.com. He averaged 27 points, five rebounds, four assists and three steals per game in his junior season while leading Arthur Hill to the Saginaw Valley League championship. He earned Michigan Class A Player of the Year honors as a junior. Davis claimed all-state honors as a sophomore and was the first freshman to start for McMath in progam history.


“Eric will bring scoring, playmaking and competitiveness to our program,” Barnes said. “He has a scoring mentality along with a skill set and basketball IQ that will allow him to also function as a primary ball handler. Eric has the reputation of being a true gym rat.”


Roach (6-3, 160), a guard from Houston’s North Shore High School who plays under head coach David Green, is ranked as the No. 35 overall prospect in the nation by Rivals.com and No. 71 by 247Sports. He averaged a team-best 16.1 points per game as a junior while leading North Shore to a 33-3 overall record and the Class 5A state title. Roach also claimed a 5A state championship in the triple jump last May in Austin.


“Kerwin has the mindset and IQ of a point guard along with the athleticism and scoring ability to operate effectively on the wing,” Barnes said. “He loves to compete and has a tremendous work ethic.”

The head coach is Mike Davis, the guy who was at Indiana (and UAB)

In between MSU and KSU, they lost to Auburn by only 1-point -- that would have been quite the run

The weirdest thing is that Texas Southern team has been atrocious the entire year. They are 3-9 with losses to Norfolk State and Eastern Washington. Surely they had players suspended or something at the beginning of the season.
