Head Coach Charlie Strong and the rest of the Texas Longhorns coaching staff are about to embark on an epic journey to NSD. Over the next 22 days, Texas fans will see numerous high school football players make their pledge to join the Longhorn Nation. Texas will sign somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-14 more players for the class of 2016.
January 16th, 2016 could be a monumental official visit weekend for Charlie Strong and the Texas Longhorns. Texas could host as many as 23 recruits combined with the official, unofficial visits and early enrolled players. The next player tentatively scheduled for the 16th is wide receiver Davion Curtis.
Davion Curtis made his verbal pledge to the University of Texas November 19th, 2015. The Longhorns picked up some much-needed speed at the wide receiver position with the addition of Curtis. Averaging 20 yards per catch, Curtis is a downfield threat and a player with nice quickness off the line. A one-time Georgia Bulldog commitment, Curtis decided to make the change and stay closer to home. A decision Coach Strong and the rest of the staff gladly embraced. Curtis checks in from Temple (Texas) at 5-foot-11, 175-pounds.
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. Brooksnull
