Posted November 21st, 2017


Stay updated on the latest Texas Longhorns recruiting news brought to you by Longhorns recruiting beat writer Mike Craven of The Forty will publish M-F at 10 a.m. each morning to provide Texas fans with an in-depth look at the latest for the Longhorns on the recruiting trail. 

D’Shawn Jamison provides versatility 

Houston Lamar cornerback D’Shawn Jamison chose the Longhorns minutes after Texas fell to Oklahoma on Oct. 14th — the last 2018 commitment Texas has gotten. Jamison, a 4-star cornerback, is teammates with fellow 2018 commitment Al’vonte Woodard and the duo hopes to lure Lamar’s 5-star cornerback Anthony Cook into the class before national signing day.


Jamison, an alumnus of The Opening Final and a future Under Armour All-American, is 5-10 and 174 pounds. He’s played cornerback, safety and linebacker at Lamar. He’s ranked No. 17 on the 2018 Fabulous 55.

Jamison recently shared his thoughts on Texas and the recruiting process:

At what age did you fall in love with football?

It started at 7 years old after I started running summer track. I joined the football team the next year and it became my favorite sport.

What made Texas your choice?

The coaching staff and the school. I want to major in broadcasting and Texas is one of the best schools for that. I love the new coaching staff and I was familiar with those guys from their time at Houston.

What are your goals as a senior?

Win a state championship.

What was most important to you as a recruit?

A coaching staff that showed a lot of love and what was best for me. I wanted a school that made an effort to get me.

What were your initial thoughts of Tom Herman?

He has always been real, even when he was at Houston. He told me what to look for and what not to look for, even if I wasn’t ever going to Houston.

Where do you see yourself playing at Texas?

Mainly against the slot, like what P.J. Locke does for Texas. Also return some kicks.

What artist would you most like to see live?

21 Savage.

Favorite movie?


Favorite athlete of all-time?

Tyrann Mathieu.

Favorite sport to watch other than football?
