UTSA have revealed their fall basketball signing class as Brooks Thompson announced three players will be joining the team after they signed national letters of intent on Tuesday.

The three joining the Roadrunners are New Braunfels' Austin Karrer, Austalian James Ringholt and, from Baton Rouge, Christian Wilson.

Karrer joins UTSA from Canyon HS in New Braunfels and has got his senior season off to a stellar start with 14.8 points and 7.2 rebounds per game, sitting well above last season's mark of 10.4 points per game, in a season which earned him All District honors.

In an impressive 2012 season Karrer managed 49 3-pointers, a team high, and was named to the All-Tournament Team at the River City Classic after the Cougars swept the tournament.

Standing at a formidable 6'10 Ringholt joins from Brisbane Boys College in Queensland and has proved a vital part of that state's youth schoolboys set up, having represented the maroons at Under 16 and Under 18 level at the nationals.

In addition Ringholt has been tabbed for the Boomers, the Australian National Team having been selected for the National Performance Program in Queensland for the past two seasons. That has allowed Ringholt to gain experience including the Basketball Without Borders Asia tour with FIBA and the NBA.

The third signing joins from Massachusetts' Notre Dame Prep as Christian Wilson, a native of Baton Rouge, LA, joins UTSA next season after just joining his new school.

Wilson played his junior year in Cathedral City, CA in 2012-13 with an average of 33 points, eight rebounds and seven assists per game the guard comes in as a versatile player for the Roadrunners.

His junior season saw him win All District honors after that impressive season that saw him get off to an explosive start with 96 points in two games, including passing the half-century against Palo Verde Valley.

The three will have time to prep and join UTSA in the fall, it will be a curve for all three but Thompson is confident they'll make the leap well.
