An injury may have derailed Cameron Ridley's senior season, but the former McDonald's All-American center will have an NBA opportunity.

Ridley has been named to the Chicago Bulls summer league roster, which will give him an opportunity to showcase his talents despite not being selected in the 2016 NBA Draft. The summer league, an 11-day showcase that runs from July 8-18 in Las Vegas, pits together many of the league's draft picks, young players and those in search of NBA deals.

A 6-foot-10, 290-pound center, Ridley averaged 8.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks in 21.4 minutes per contest over his four-year Texas career. As a senior Ridley played in 13 games and led the team in rebounding (8.5) and finished second in scoring (11.1) and blocks (37). A fractured left foot caused Ridley to miss all of conference play.

Ridely finished his Texas career at third on the Longhorns career block list and No. 10 on the school's all-time rebounding list.
