Commitment Announcement
Second Visit Makes Lasting Impression on Texas-Bound Woldeab

Siem Woldeab thought he wanted to stay in California for college. The San Diego native didn’t want to travel far from home, and had Stanford and UCLA at the top of his list.

Woldeab decided to visit Texas last April just to make sure he wasn’t missing out on anything. The trip was marred by flight delays, and the senior blue chip was only able to stay in Austin for less than 24 hours.

“I didn’t get a good look at anything and was not really that impressed with the school that much,” Woldeab said. “I had my application for Stanford all ready to send and I really liked Stanford a lot.”

But Texas head coach Michael Center made a home visit last month to convince Woldeab to fly back to Austin one more time. Woldeab and his father spent nearly three days touring the campus and learning more about what Texas had to offer athletically and academically.

Woldeab committed to Texas on the same day he returned home from his visit.

“I just fell in love with the school and fell in love with the city of Austin,” Woldeab said. “It has such a great vibe, and I realized how much I had missed on the first visit. Texas has everything I really wanted out of a school.”
