Destiny Littleton is already a basketball legend in California. Now she's bringing her star power to Texas.

Score another McDonald's All-American for the Texas women's basketball team.

Destiny Littleton, who finished her high school career as the all-time leading scorer in California history with 4,300 points, has committed to the Longhorns.

The 5-foot-9 Littleton averaged 42.7 points, 10.9 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 3.4 steals as a senior at Bishop's School (La Jolla, California). She passed the likes of Cheryl Miller, Diana Taurasi, Lisa Leslie, Candice Wiggins and Charde Houston on the California scoring charts. She was named the Gatorade Player of the Year in California.

"Scoring is what I pride myself on," Littleton said in March. "I spent hours and hours in the gym working on my shot."

It wasn't as if Texas was hurting for talent in its incoming class. Fellow McDonald's All-Americans Rellah Boothe, the No. 3 prospect in the espnW HoopGurlz Top 100, and Chasity Patterson, the No. 4 prospect, had previously committed to Karen Aston and the Longhorns. Littleton is ranked 33rd in the class.

Littleton had originally signed with USC but reopened her recruitment after the resignation of Cynthia Cooper-Dyke in March.
