The Texas Longhorns women’s basketball team began assembling talent for its 2023-24 team as the NCAA’s early-signing period opened on Wednesday.
The Longhorns, led by coach Vic Schaefer, have made the NCAA Tournament’s Elite Eight for the past two seasons. Texas enters this season as one of the top ranked teams in the country, featuring All-Big 12 Preseason guard Rori Harmon — who was also the Big 12 Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player — and returning forward Aaliyah Moore.
Texas also has a quartet of talented transfers that were among the best players in the country last season.
Before the signing period, the Longhorns had three commitments, two of which were Top 100 players per ESPN — forward Madison Booker and guard Gisela Maul.
Texas announced Maul’s signing on Wednesday morning. Texas also announced the signing of center Abbie Boutilier, who at 6-foot-9 will be the tallest player in Texas women’s basketball history. Texas also signed Madison Booker.
