Texas hosting 4-star Cibolo Steele SF Gerald Liddell on Saturday



The San Antonio-area wing is making yet another visit to the Forty Acres on Saturday.

One of Shaka Smart’s top targets will be on campus today after multiple reports indicate Cibolo Steele small forward Gerald Liddell is in Austin visiting the Texas Longhorns.

A four-star prospect from the San Antonio-area, Liddell has been a key target for Smart and his staff for quite some time and has already made numerous trips to the Forty Acres.

Considered one of the premier prospects in the state and the nation, the 6’6, 180-pound slasher averaged 19.7 points and 8.6 rebounds as a junior at Steele.

More recently, in what became the signature addition of Smart’s tenure in Austin, Mohamed Bamba’s Player’s Tribune announcement mentioned Durant, saying, “my idol Kevin Durant’s deep involvement with the Center for Sports Leadership & Innovation at the school,” went into the Pebbles and Sand portion of his decision process.

Just by simply being a former Longhorn, Durant played a role in some form or fashion in a pair of elite five-star prospects becoming Longhorns and Turner and Bamba likely won’t be the last.

Regardless of how far his NBA career takes him, Durant always seems to find a way back to his second home — Austin. Fortunately for Smart and the ‘Horns, Durant’s presence and name alone have done nothing but benefit the program and will likely continue to do so going forward.
