“I Love Texas Longhorns I Want To Join The Horns” Most Valued SEC Star Confirm He Wants To Join Texas Longhorns

**Jamie Vinson Commits to Texas After Kentucky Visit**

Former Vanderbilt signee Jamie Vinson has decided to stay in the SEC, but not with Kentucky. The Wildcats still have a scholarship spot to fill, but it won’t be for Vinson.

On Sunday, Adam Zagoria reported that Kentucky was no longer pursuing the 3-star prospect. The following day, Vinson committed to the Texas Longhorns, with On3’s Joe Tipton breaking the news first.

Vinson, who plays for Oak Hill Academy and is originally from Austin, Texas, will be returning home for college. According to the 247 Sports Composite rankings, he is ranked 239th nationally, 41st among centers, and 11th in Texas for the class of 2024. With Texas set to join the SEC next season, Vinson will play in the league after all.

The 6-foot-11, 210-pound center visited Kentucky on May 20th, showing mutual interest. Kentucky’s coach Mark Pope is still determining how to fill the final roster spot for the next season.

Kentucky is hosting class of 2025 forward Will Riley for an official visit starting Tuesday. Riley is a strong candidate for reclassification, potentially filling the final roster spot. If not, the candidate for the final spot remains uncertain.
