Jesuit shooting guard Gavin Perryman has committed to play basketball at the University of Texas next season under first-year head coach Chris Beard.

“I’m very excited to announce I’ve committed to the University of Texas to continue my basketball career and education,” Perryman said on Twitter. “Jesuit has been my beloved home for the past four years, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. From teachers, counselors and coaches, the Jesuit community will always hold a special place in my heart.”

The 6-foot-2, 175-pound shooting guard averaged 19.6 points per game as a senior and led Jesuit in assists with 90 and steals with 36. He shot 45.8 percent from the 3-point line.

He is the son of Brandy Perryman, an all-conference guard for the Longhorns during the 1990s who remains one of the school’s all-time leaders in 3-point shooting.

Perryman arrived on campus last week for offseason workouts. He is likely to receive a scholarship this season, according to the Austin American-Statesman.
