COLLEGE STATION, Texas – Texas A&M men’s basketball coach Billy Kennedy confirmed Monday that former University of Houston standout Danuel House will join the Aggie program.
“We’re excited to add Danuel to our team,” Kennedy said. “A player of his caliber gives us an experienced guard who can score at a high level. He’s an extremely talented and athletic perimeter player and will immediately improve our team.”
House, a 6-foot-7 swingman, made the decision to transfer from Houston after averaging 12.9 points and 5.1 rebounds per contest while shooting 43.2 percent from the floor and 32.5 percent from 3-point range in 57 games during his two-year Cougar career.
Last season, the Sugar Land, Texas, native finished second on the Cougars in both scoring (13.6 points per game) and rebounding (5.3 rebounds per game) despite being limited to only 24 games due to injury.
A Kyle Macy Freshman All-American during his first collegiate season in 2012-13, House averaged 12.4 points and 4.9 rebounds while dishing out 61 assists and shooting 43.6 percent from the floor to earn Conference USA Freshman of the Year accolades as well as a spot on the C-USA All-Freshman Team. He was honored as C-USA Freshman of the Week on three occasions as a rookie and also earned a spot on the Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll.
Following a banner prep career at Hightower High School, House was rated as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com and 4-star recruit by Scout.com. Additionally, he was regarded as the No. 3 small forward nationally by ESPN and No. 15 in the ESPNU 100 as well as the No. 26 prospect in the country in the Rivals 150.
