Texas target Jav Guidry ‘learned a lot’ on visit

Posted January 22nd, 2017


Texas put itself in good position with cornerback target Jav Guidry. The former Cedar Park football and track star took an official visit to the Longhorns, reuniting with his old city and the staff which gained his commitment once in the 2017 cycle. Guidry was a one-time Houston commit.

“It was great, he said. “I learned a lot.”

Texas wants a third cornerback in the 2017 cycle. The Longhorns hold commitments from Josh Thompson – who also took his official visit this weekend – and Lake Dallas’ Kobe Boyce. Both were committed to Texas under Charlie Strong.

Thompson and Boyce are bigger cornerbacks. Guidry is undersized compared to Strong’s preference at the position, but he makes up for his lack of size with speed. He won the Class 5A 100-meter dash as a junior at Cedar Park before moving to California for his senior season.

Guidry left Austin uncommitted. He’ll visit Arizona State this weekend and announce on national signing day. Right now, he says it’s between Texas and Utah. Arizona State has ground to make up on the official visit, but having the last word is always considered favorable.
