3-Star Hoops Recruit Demarcus Croaker Commits to Texas
Demarcus Croaker, the 3-star recruit, has committed to play for Rick Barnes at Texas. The shooting guard committed to be a Longhorn just weeks after visiting Austin and attending the Texas 79-70 victory against Baylor.
Croaker had decommitted from Murray State, and Texas quickly moved in to sign the shooting guard. The senior guard was also being persuaded by Mississippi and Baylor before committing to the Longhorns.
Croaker told ESPN, “I selected Texas because it is a great academic school, great basketball program and I think I can be real successful in their style of play. On the visit, the coaches were the difference. I like how they were talking about how I will improve and how they are going to play me.”
Javan Felix, Myck Kabongo and Ioannis Papapetrou all spent time with Croaker as well as some other Longhorns. They all explained what Texas will expect. Croaker stated, “Felix, Kabongo and Papapetrou told me Coach Barnes is going to push me and not let me settle. I like that.”
He is probably Texas’ best recruit to date. Croaker is an athletic 6’3″, who can finish at the rim and score from behind the three-point arc. Croaker will look to add to a team finished 16-17 overall and 7-11 in the Big 12.
Croaker will be on one of the youngest squads in all of Division I. He will play with playmaking point guard Isaiah Taylor, who was recruited from The Village School in Houston, Texas.
“I think we can make a big run. With all the guys they have coming back, we will be able to play together a couple years and have great team chemistry,” Croaker said.
