Brad Underwood got his guy — twice.
Brandon Averette, a 5-11 guard from Richardson (Texas), committed to Stephen F. Austin when Underwood was the coach. Underwood left for Oklahoma State and Averette reopened his recruitment last week. He then committed to the Cowboys on Tuesday.
Averette averaged 22.6 points, six assists, 4.6 rebounds and was named the 10-6A Most Valuable Player as a senior. The Dallas Morning News named him to the all-area second team.
Interestingly, Averette doesn’t have a national rankings and Oklahoma State was his only Power of Five offer, but he certainly has a coach who believes in him. A recent documentary — embedded below — referred to him as the “most underrated player in Texas.”
