Chendall Weaver Announces Transfer to Texas Basketball
Chendall Weaver announced his commitment to the Texas Longhorns on Thursday as the former UT-Arlington guard chose his new team.
Weaver announced his decision on social media through a post conveyed by On3.com’s Joe Tipton.
Weaver was the Western Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year for the Mavericks as he averaged 9.5 points and 4.6 rebounds. At 6-foot-3, he can play both the point and the shooting guard positions.
Weaver is the fourth transfer coach Rodney Terry has pulled since the end of the season, as the Longhorns reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament and Terry received a new contract to be the full-time coach.
Former Oral Roberts guard Max Abmas is the highest-profile transfer Terry has brought to Austin.
Abmas is the NCAA’s active total points leader and was the top overall scorer in college basketball in 2020-21. Abmas has averaged nearly 21 points per game for his career. He has one year of eligibility remaining.
Former Virginia center Kadin Shedrick, who is 6-foot-11, is transferring to Texas. The former Cavalier averaged 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds per game last season. He joins the Longhorns with three seasons of college basketball under his belt.
Former UTEP forward Ze’Rik Onyema is the last transfer to Texas so far this offseason. The sophomore averaged 7.1 points and 4.4 rebounds last season for the Miners. Those were all career highs for Oneyma.
The Longhorns are preparing for their final basketball season in the Big 12. After the 2023-24 athletic year the Longhorns, along with the Oklahoma Sooners, will move to the SEC.
