College Basketball: Five-star PF Ron Holland decommits from Texas
Another tough blow for Rodney Terry and Texas basketball as 2023 five-star power forward Ron Holland announced his decommitment from the program on Friday.
Holland committed to Texas before Chris Beard was let go for an alleged domestic violence incident in January. He chose the Longhorns over the likes of Arkansas, UCLA and Kentucky.
“I want to take this time to thank head coach RT and the entire Texas coaching staff for their consideration, I would also like to thank the Longhorn Nation for all their love and support, While this has been a difficult process, I have decided to decommit from University of Texas and re-open my recruitment. Texas will still be one of my top schools of choice.”
The Duncanville product is ranked as the No. 1 product in the state of Texas and the No. 6 overall player in the cycle.
The loss of Holland leaves Texas without a single player in its 2023 recruiting class. Fellow five-star AJ Johnson opted to sign a pro contract in Australia over playing college ball.
