Vick was set to graduate from Memphis’s Douglass High School and then spend a year playing at prep school before heading to Dallas.
Now, the 6-foot-5, 185 pound wing could find himself on a team next season.
Besides SMU, Vick had drawn interest from Auburn, Baylor, Wichita State, Arkansas and several others. He is an excellent scorer who, once he improves his ball skills and toughens up a big, can easily make an impact on the collegiate level.
SMU will now have to possibly prepare for a future without Vick but if last season is any indication, the team should be just fine. The Mustangs went 27-7 (15-3 AAC) in their third season under Hall of Fame coach Larry Brown, taking home the American Athletic Conference title and earning an NCAA tournament berth for the first time in over two decades.
There, the team lost to UCLA in the opening round on a controversial goaltending call.
