Texas standout WR Davion Curtis Commits to Texas

Charlie Strong and the Texas coaching staff have put in countless hours on the recruiting trail, and the hard work is starting to pay off in a major way. The Longhorns are at it again as Davion Curtis says yes to Texas.

Wide receiver Davion Curtis checks in at 5-foot-11, 180-pounds with blistering speed.  The Temple (Texas) standout is a tremendous downfield threat, shows great quickness off the line of scrimmage and is electric with the ball in the open field.

Scout.com Take

Curtis is a versatile receiver prospect with good production playing against quality HS competition. Gets off quickly at the snap to beat DB's at the LOS. Dangerous vertical threat whose speed translates to special teams play. A bit small for outside WR, on the bigger side for the slot, capable of playing both roles, but more of a natural outside WR. A knack for gaining a lot of yards after the catch. Shows athleticism by winning jump balls in the red zone. -G. Brooks
