AUSTIN — Shaka Smart and the Horns picked up a big time commitment when Mt. Saint Mary’s transfer guard, Elijah Long, gave Texas his pledge this afternoon.

Long, a 6’0″ guard who averaged 15 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.4 assists for the Mount.

Long will sit out the 2017-18 season and then have two years of eligibility remaining.

I should have quotes and more up in a bit.
