Rodney Terry and the Texas Longhorns just added a new name to the 2024 class of incoming freshmen with the addition of four-star guard Cam Scott.
Scott chose the Longhorns out of 20 different teams including Kansas, North Carolina, Miami, Ole Miss, LSU, Texas Tech, and more. Cam Scott becomes the Longhorns’ first commitment in the class of 2024, which boosted Terry’s group to the nation’s 21st-ranked class.
Scott is listed as a four-star prospect by the 247Sports index and currently ranks as the nation’s 24th-overall prospect. He also checks in as the fifth-ranked shooting guard in the nation and is the top player in the state of South Carolina.
With a move to the SEC set for the summer of 2024, Scott will step on the court for the first time with the Longhorns as a member of the SEC, rather than the Big 12 Conference.
The South Carolina native spoke on his decision to head to Austin with On3’s Joe Tipton saying, “I chose Texas because I felt it was the right place for me to grow the right way. Allowing me to come in and make mistakes that I will learn from in a comfortable organization that I have full trust in.”
The Longhorns have one final season in the Big 12 before making the move to switch conferences, and while Rodney Terry led his squad to the Elite Eight last season in his first year at the helm, Texas will have an uphill battle against an expanded Big 12 Conference to contend for a title one last time before their departure.
