THE SKINNY: The 6-foot-1, 170-pound native of Toronto is rated the nation’s No. 7 overall prospect and top true point guard for the Class of 2011 by RebelNation.net basketball recruiting analyst Bob Gibbons of Lenoir, N.C. Latest in a long line of Findlay Prep guards (Avery Bradley, Cory Joseph) to sign with Texas. He’s a very explosive ball-handler in the John Wall-mold. Had 18 points, 11 assists and 6 rebounds during Findlay’s 95-69 blowout of defending national prep champion Houston Yates on Dec. 16, repeatedly carving up Yates’ vaunted full court press in the process.
