Little Elm junior guard and consensus five-star recruit R.J. Hampton is reclassifying to the class of 2019 according to 247Sports. Little Elm went 24-10 this season and advanced to the area round before falling to eventual 5A state champion Mansfield Timberview.
It was going to be a runaway, a landslide for coach Kim Mulkey and her Baylor Lady Bears.
The Flower Mound junior should return well before the beginning of the 2019-20 season.
The Lady Bears become just the third program to win three championships in women's basketball history.
The Red Raiders will try to become the first Texas team since 1966 to win the men's basketball championship.
So maybe the Baylor Lady Bears have another special and very difficult date with history after all.
