Ex-Texas receiver Davion Curtis to now catch footballs for former Longhorn coordinator

Posted January 14th, 2019


On Monday, former Texas receiver Davion Curtis said he will close out his collegiate career at McNeese State.

Curtis spent two years with the Longhorns but left the program this past August. He instead played at Tyler Junior College this fall. Curtis caught 21 footballs for the Apaches, and he averaged 16.7 yards per reception.

Curtis will reunite with former UT offensive coordinator Sterlin Gilbert at McNeese State. Gilbert, who was named the Football Championship Subdivision-level program’s head coach in December, worked at Texas in 2016.


Curtis appeared in only one game at Texas and he did not record any statistics. In 2016, Texas recruited Curtis out of nearby Temple High. When he signed with the Longhorns, the six-foot, 190-pound Curtis was regarded as a three-star prospect.

Curtis will have two years of eligibility remaining when he arrives at McNeese State.
