POSTED: April 30, 2019 -- 5:15 p.m. CT

The Houston Cougars men's basketball program made official this afternoon news which was reported last week: 6'3", 190, guard Cameron Tyson, 6'3", 185, guard, has become a Coog.

Last Tuesday, Jeff Goodman of Stadium tweeted Houston has landed Cameron:

Today, Houston Head Coach Kelvin Sampson said: "Cameron is an outstanding young man, who fits our culture, on and off the court. He comes from a great family and can really shoot the basketball. I look forward to getting him to Houston and developing him."

Tyson signed with the University of Idaho last April after a stellar high school career at Bothell High School in Washington state. Tyson finished his high school career as Bothell's all-time leading scorer.

When Tyson signed with Idaho, Vandals Head Coach Don Verlin said, "What immediately jumps out about Cameron is that he can really, really shoot the ball and that his range extends beyond the NBA 3-point line. "We believe that he has the skill level and the physical strength to come in and compete at a high level right away.

"He also fits the profile of the type of player that we want in the program. He is a really high-character guy with a tremendous work ethic and a passion for the game."

This past season, Idaho finished with a 5-27 record. Cameron was the second-leading scorer on the team; and, he set the program's freshman records for threes made (106) and scoring. He led the Vandals in three-point shooting (42.9%) - 106 out of 247 three-point attempts. He played in all 32 games for the Vandals and started 31 games. He made at least one 3-point shot in all 32 games.

Tyson will sit out the 2019-'20 season and have three years of collegiate athletic eligibility remaining.

Tyson will join newcomers redshirt-freshman 6'4 guard Caleb Mills (T.C. Roberson High School); redshirt junior 6'7 forward Justin Gorham (Towson); 6'7" freshman J'Wan Roberts (Shoemaker High School); and, 6'2" freshman guard Marcus Sasser Jr (Red Oak High School).
