Jericho Sims only needed one recruiting visit to determine where he was going.
Sims, a 6-9 forward ranked No. 48 by Scout.com, committed to Texas late Monday night, days after returning from a visit to Austin.
“I just feel like I fit in the most there and not just with the players, but the coaches and the assistant coaches,” Sims told Scout.
“I feel like they recruit everyone differently based on who they are. I just found that out and I thought that was unique. I feel like they relate to me the most.”
Sims from Cristo Rey Jesuit in Minneapolis also had been considering the hometown Gophers, among others. His father, Charles, played for Minnesota with Flip Saunders and Mychal Thompson in the 1970s. His old brother, Dominique, is a former Gophers football player.
Texas now has a pair of Top 100 players in their recruiting class as Sims joins four-star Royce Hamm from Aldine Davis in Houston.
