Hudson Price, a 6-foot-6 shooting guard from The First Academy in Orlando, Fla., on Wednesday became the fourth recruit to sign with TCU.

Price, son of former NBA All-Star Mark Price, averaged 18.7 points and 7.8 rebounds his senior season. He shot 54.7 percent from the field, including 45.2 percent from 3-point range.

“He’s very skilled,” TCU coach Trent Johnson said. “There’s not much he hasn’t seen in the world of basketball when you look at the caliber of player his dad was.”

Price joins center Karviar Shepherd (Dallas Prime Prep) and guards Brandon Parrish (Arlington Seguin) and Michael Williams (San Antonio Reagan) in the 2013 recruiting class. Johnson said additional players could be signed before May 15, the deadline for the spring signing period.

“These guys all complement each other,” Johnson said. “I just think [Price is] going to be a really good college player. Hudson knows how hard players work to be good.”

Briefly

• Baylor basketball: Junior college standout Kenny Chery has signed a national letter of intent with the NIT champion Bears. Chery, a 6-foot point guard, played the past two seasons at State Fair Community College in Missouri.

• Oklahoma State basketball: Big 12 player of the year and Flower Mound Marcus product Marcus Smart, announced he will return for his sophomore season. Proclaiming he’s a “Cowboy at heart,” Smart said he made his decision after consulting with his family and praying on it, and knowing fully what he could be passing up by skipping this chance to enter the NBA draft as a likely top-five pick.
