SAN ANTONIO — Four-star Miami prospects Devonaire Clarington and Tim Irvin committed to Texas during Saturday’s U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
They become the third and fourth four-star players to commit to Texas since the new year, joining cornerback Davante Davis, Clarington’s high school teammate at Booker T. Washington, and Dallas Skyline linebacker Anthony Wheeler.
With four ball caps spread across a table, Clarington, a tight end, picked the Longhorns over Florida, Miami, and LSU.
Irvin, who had a 36-yard punt return on the game’s opening drive, chose Texas over Auburn, Florida, West Virginia, and Miami.
Clarington is the nation’s No. 4 tight end and No. 169 prospect, according to 247 Sports’ composite rankings. Irvin is the No. 23 athlete and No. 276 prospect.
Texas’ class, consisting of 25 pledges, ranks ninth nationally. Two weeks ago, it ranked 19th.
