Predicting Texas’s Next Commitment After C Jamie Vinson

Texas’s 2025 recruiting class could gain momentum in the coming months. On June 3, Texas basketball and head coach Rodney Terry secured a third commitment for the 2024 recruiting class from Jamie Vinson, a former Vanderbilt signee and three-star center from Austin’s Oak Hill. Vinson chose Texas over Kentucky, South Carolina, and Rutgers.

Who might be the next to commit to Texas basketball?

With Vinson added, Terry’s roster now has 12 scholarship players for the 2024-25 season, Texas’s first year in the SEC. The team can still add one more player if desired.

Vinson offers valuable length and physical potential as an athletic low post player, capable of playing both the four and the five positions. His addition addresses Texas’s need for a two-way low post player, bringing length, rebounding, and rim protection.

Looking ahead, Texas aims to build momentum for the 2025 class through summer visits, having already hosted several key blue-chip prospects. More official visits are expected before the 2024-25 season begins.
