Texas adds top F Devon Pryor to 2023 class

Three-star recruit Devon Pryor committed to Texas and reclassified to the Class of 2023.

The 6-foot-7 forward committed to LSU in May for its 2024 recruiting class.

The prospect from Houston’s PSAT-XEA Academy also had offers from Texas A&M, Oklahoma State, Virginia Tech, Penn State, TCU and others.

Pryor ranked as the No. 28 small forward and No. 122 overall prospect in the Class of 2024, per 247 Sports. Updated rankings for 2023 are not yet available.

Pryor said his strong relationship with Texas coach Rodney Terry and his staff prompted his decision to reclassify and join the Longhorns instead of LSU.

“The communication and support they’ve shown is unmatched,” he told On3. “Texas has always been one of those schools that I’ve kept up with through my basketball career. I’ve seen the talent that has gone through and I believe I can be one of those guys and so do they. It’s a winning culture and a phenomenal place to be.”

The Longhorns finished 29-9 (12-6 Big 12) in 2022-23, including 22-8 after Terry replaced Chris Beard.
