The Texas Longhorns will soon host one of their top defensive back prospects this cycle.
Jaden Davis, a highly coveted cornerback prospect out of Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) St. Thomas Aquinas, has scheduled his official visit to Texas for May 4, according to a report from 247Sports’ EJ Holland.
A 4-star prospect, Davis picked up his Texas offer on Jan. 16, and just weeks later, he included the Longhorns in his top 10, along with Ohio State, Florida, Syracuse, Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Penn State, Wisconsin and Miami.
Thus far, Davis has already scheduled official visits to Oklahoma on April 13, and Penn State on April 20, with Texas now joining that list. Kentucky also will reportedly receive one of Davis’ five official visits.
An elite prospect who compiled 44 offers throughout the recruiting process, Davis is one of 11 cornerbacks with a Texas offer this cycle and joins talents such as Derek Stingley, Chris Steele, Erick Young, Jeffery Carter and Marcus Banks as key targets at the position.
However, Florida stands as the perceived favorite with 60 percent of Davis’ five Crystal Ball projections. For Texas, this means impressing when Davis officially visits in May will be critical for the Horns to remain a factor.
Texas’ 2019 class is currently without a pledge at cornerback.
A 5-foot-9, 166-pound talent, Davis is the nation’s No. 203 player, No. 20 cornerback and the No. 30 player in Florida, per the 247Sports composite rankings.
