Last night, Bishop’s High star guard Destiny Littleton announced that she would be playing for the University of Texas Longhorns this fall.

Littleton had previously committed to play for the USC Trojans. But after Head Coach Cynthia Cooper resigned, she was released from her letter of intent by the school and given the opportunity to look at other programs. Littleton posted a message saying:

“Five months ago I signed my NLI to USC. It was my dream school. The place I wanted to go since I was little and that dream came true when I faxed that paper in, only after 30 seconds of receiving it. It was the best day of my life, and the most humbling at that.  I was settled, relaxed, and the 500 pound hippo was finally off of my back. Fast forward to March 3, 2017 my world seemed like it was turned upside down. I was devastated. But what kept me going were the people around me telling me everything happens for a reason. I stayed true to myself and what the man upstairs had in store for me. I found a program that I fell in love with as soon as I stepped foot in the campus. This coaching staff is amazing, and goofy just like me. It wasn’t easy saying no to USC, but it was necessary. I want to thank everyone who was by my side the entire way. I especially want to thank Marlon Wells AKA pops. I couldn’t have done this without you. But this process is finally over and I am proud to say I will be a Texas Longhorn.”

Littleton is the 3rd McDonald’s All-American for the Longhorns incoming freshman class.
