AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Former Maryland center Shaquille Cleare has signed to play the rest of his college basketball for Texas.

Texas said in a statement Thursday that Cleare signed a scholarship agreement and plans to enroll in classes this summer. Although he’ll train and practice with the Longhorns, he’ll be ineligible under NCAA rules to play until the 2015-16 season when he’ll have two seasons of eligibility left.

Maryland granted Cleare and guards Nick Faust and Roddy Peters releases to transfer earlier this month.

The 6-foot-9 Cleare came to Maryland two years ago as a highly touted recruit from the Bahamas but started only 28 of 69 career games. He averaged 3.0 points and 2.5 rebounds as a sophomore last season.
