Westlake Hoops Star Cunningham Commits To Longhorns

New this Friday afternoon, iReporter Katie Callihan confirms #Westlake forward Brock Cunningham (’18) has verbally committed to playing college basketball for The University of Texas!

Here’s Broccoli’s tweet:

What’s even more exciting for Chaps fans, the Horns also have an offer on the table for current Westlake big man Will Baker (’19).  So this upcoming 2017-2018 basketball season, we could see a preview of the future Longhorns front court (surrounded by other outstanding talent like Baylor-commit Matthew Mayer, Luke Pluymen, Keonte Kennedy and more).

About a year and a half back, we caught a candid moment with current UT QB Sam Ehlinger (then just a junior) and a youngster nicknamed Broccoli in a candid, yet prophetic moment.

Here’s a video of Brock (as a Super Soph) and his fellow Chaps in the State Regional finals versus powerhouse Atascocita.

Cunningham is sure to garner more offers, even though he’s verbally committed.  We’re excited to cover him into the new season ‘like no one else’!
