The backcourt for the Texas Longhorns received a significant boost on Friday with the news that guard Marcus Carr will be back in burnt orange next season for one final effort among the collegiate ranks.
“Standard Set. Expectations remain high. Bar Risen and never been one to walk underneath.
Longhorn Nation, I have a promise to keep. See you in the Moody! - 5” Carr wrote on Instagram.
Taking advantage of his COVID-19 redshirt for a super senior season, Carr’s return to Austin solidifies one of Texas’ guard roles going forward with a streaky, experienced scorer, but also provides a some much-needed continuity for a team that noticeably struggled on that front last season with head coach Chris Beard being tasked with rebuilding the bulk of his roster.
