Houston adds a pair

With a pair of top 100 prospects on board, James Dickey was still in need of a few guards. He added them to his class on Thursday.

Houston added a pair – Brandon Morris and Tione Womack -- of recruits to their 2012 recruiting class this week.

Morris, a 6-foot guard, picked the Cougars over strong interest from Mississippi State, Seton Hall and Missouri State.

"We are thrilled to have Brandon join our Cougar family," Dickey said in a release. "He is an explosive lead guard with great court vision," Dickey said. "He can defend as well as score. Brandon will add experience to our backcourt."

Morris averaged 16.9 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.9 assists during his sophomore season at Kansas City Community College.

Womack, a 6-foot-1 guard, also signed with Houston this week.

A standout at Hagerstown Community College, Womack is known for his ability to pass. He tossed out 221 assists as a sophomore.

"We are excited to have Tione join our program," Dickey said. "He has been a proven winner everywhere he has competed, and we look forward to his leadership on our team. Tione has a pass-first mentality that creates easy scoring opportunities for his teammates and is a quick, solid on-ball defender."

Womack averaged 10 points and 7.6 assists per game.

Morris and Womack join Houston's class that also consists of top 100 recruits Danuel House and Danrad Knowles, as well as big man Valentine Izundu.
