Chris McDermott commits to Texas A&M

Texas A&M basketball has picked up a high school commit for the class of 2024. This one comes from Chris McDermott, a native of Houston. Chris announced officially on his social media Thursday evening that he will be taking his talents to College Station!

McDermott is a native of Houston and attended Booker T. Washington High School. He picked A&M over Ole Miss, Georgetown, SMU and others. The 6'7 forward is a huge get for the Aggies.

His senior year at Booker T. Washington, he recorded 20.3 points, 18.7 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game according to MaxPreps. No, that is not a typo. He nearly averaged 20 rebounds a game—close to his points average—and was 6th in the nation in rebounds per game according to MaxPreps. His team made it to the Regional Finals his senior year losing to Silsbee while putting up 22 points.

Most recently, McDermott was awarded the prestigous Guy V. Lewis award. In addition to that, he received All-Greater Houston Boys Basketball Player of the Year along with being on the TABC All-Region Team for Class 4A-Region 3.

This is a huge get for Buzz as he will be a great addition to the outstanding rebounders the Ags currently have. He comes in at 6'7, 215 lbs and will be a force on the perimeter as well as inside.

McDermott's ability on the glass will be huge for Texas A&M basketball—as we saw this year, crashing the glass is huge for the Aggies' play style.
