Texas' leading returning scorer, Ioannis Papapetrou, has signed a lucrative deal to play overseas with Olympiacos BC, ending his Longhorn career after one season.

Texas confirmed Papapetrou's departure, which was reported earlier by Eurohoops.net. Olympiacos also posted a story on its website that Papapetrou, a native of Athens, has signed a five-year deal. A source told ESPN.com the deal was worth approximately $2 million.

The 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward's decision to go pro means Texas has lost the top four leading scorers from its 2012-13 team.

AUSTIN, Texas -- The Longhorns only have one player on their roster listed above 6-foot-10 for the 2011-12 season.

It will be a much different story next season.

The height trend of Texas' 2012 recruiting class continued on Saturday when 6-foot-8 small forward/guard Ioannis Papapetrou (Melbourne, Fla./Florida Air Academy) committed to Rick Barnes' program, according to his coach Aubin Goporo.
