Since four-star receiver Tren'Davian Dickson flipped his commitment back to Baylor on Monday, many Longhorns have been keeping a close eye on three-star Georgia WR commitment Davion Curtis (Temple, Texas/Temple) to see if, possibly, UT will get involved.
Curtis is the 14th ranked receiver in Texas. With his 4.5 speed in the 40-yard dash and his 6-feet tall frame, he is a dangerous target.
Curtis verbally committed to Georgia in August, but with the recent loss of the commitment of Dickson, Texas may have their eyes on Curtis. He has talked some to offensive play-caller and wide receivers coach Jay Norvell. These conversations have been about other people saying that Texas should offer Curtis.
“I’m just praying about it and staying calm,” says the recruit.
Despite his verbal commitment to UGA, Curtis is willing to wait for a Texas offer. He has already been offered by Texas Track and Field, but he is unsure whether he will pursue that offer. His eyes are still on Texas football and he is unsure how long he will wait for the offer.
Curtis has not taken his official visit to UT yet, but he hopes to get that scheduled in the future. With only one home game remaining, the opportunities to come to a game are limited. Curtis said if asked, he will go to the Texas Tech game on Thanksgiving.
While Texas has not had its best season and has faced a lot of criticism offensively, Curtis is still drawn to the program.
“If they throw the ball they would see how they could use me in the program like kick returns and punt returns or put me at the slot and outside and things like that,” the recruit said.
As far as what has led Texas to a 4-5 record, Curtis says it’s the offensive play.
“They have players to make player, but they don’t know how to use them,” he said.
While these problems may have led to a bad season, Curtis says they are fixable and he hopes to be part of the solution. He says his speed and passion for the game separate him from the other receivers in his class.
