4 star small forward Gerald Liddell has committed to Texas.

The 6-7, 175 pound Liddell, from Byron P. Steele II High School TX, chose the Longhorns over Arizona, Baylor, California, Oregon, SMU, and ULCA.

Liddell is ranked No. 32 in the ESPN 100, Scout rates him as the No. 33 player in the class of 2018 and the No. 9 small forward. 247Sports ranked him as the No. 40 overall prospect.

Liddell averaged 11.9 points and 6.1 rebounds on the Nike EYBL circuit this spring and summer with the RM5 Elite AAU program.

He averaged 19.7 points and 8.6 rebounds per game as a junior while leading the Knights to 25 wins.

As a sophomore in 2015-16, he was the second-leading scorer for a Steele team that went 32-4 and reached the Class 6A state title game.
