Texas’ 2019 recruiting class dropped to 21 members on Monday night when four-star wide receiver Demariyon Houston de-committed from the Longhorns. The speedy four-star wide receiver from Millwood (Okla.) was one of four wide receivers pledged to Texas. The 6-foot playmaker committed to the Longhorns on July 7. He is ranked as the second-best player in Oklahoma and the No. 34-ranked wide receiver in the 2019 cycle.

The Longhorns could stand pat at wide receiver with the trio of Jordan Whittington, Jake Smith and Marcus Washington. The Longhorns are hoping to land five-star athlete Bru McCoy, who plans to spend most of his time at wide receiver. Local target Elijah Higgins of Austin Bowie is also on the board and remains uncommitted.
