Ryan Bormann of Lake Travis High School/Centex Lockdown announced his commitment to the Bobcats of Texas State Saturday afternoon. Bormann joins top-five Oklahoma prospect Drew Tennial as the only two senior prospects committed to the program. The 5-foot-9 Austin native is a solid floor general that competes to win. He uses his strength to handle the ball through tight pressure, can hit from the perimeter with consistency, and makes the right decisions with the rock. Bormann will arrive on campus as a preferred walk-on, but will work hard to prove himself and receive a scholarship.
I’m excited to announce that I will be furthering my academic and athletic career at Texas State! Thankful to everyone who has helped to get me to where I am at this point! #gobobcats pic.twitter.com/8b1I8HDlYW

“I thought I would fit in better at a bigger campus,” says Bormann. The lefty point guard chose Texas State over schools such as: Trevecca Nazarene, UT-Dallas, UT-Tyler, and a preferred walk-on spot at Incarnate Word with the intention of receiving a scholarship in the following years.
When talking about the expectations from the coaches and himself, Bormann states, “As a preferred walk-on, I do not think there will be much expected from me during my freshman year. But, I do think I can come in, work hard, and prove myself on the court.”
Bormann is out for the rest of the season after tearing two ligaments in his ankle in a district game vs. Lehmann last month. Prior to the injury, he was arguably playing like the best senior point guard in the city. Expect for him to heal and get back to the court in a timely manner. He is one who could possibly earn himself a scholarship because of his high I.Q. and work ethic.
