Tight end Juan Davis becomes Texas’ fifth commitment in 2021 recruiting class

Posted July 26th, 2019


The Longhorns are stocking offensive weapons for the future. The momentum built over the past 10 days continued Friday with the commitment of tight end Juan Davis of Everman High School. The 6-4, 217-pound three-star was a first-team all-district selection as a sophomore wide receiver, recording 41 catches for 499 yards and seven touchdowns. 

Davis is an exciting athlete just tapping into his potential on the football field. He looks like a giant on the track when he competes in the triple jump and 200 meters. It’s that athletic upside Texas wants in its ranks. Davis is now the fifth commitment for Texas in the 2021 cycle, with each one projected to the offensive side of the football.
