With his Letter of Intent signed and delivered, Antwaun Davis is now an official member of the 2013 Texas Longhorn recruiting class. A 6’0”, 180-pound cornerback from Bastrop, Davis ranks as the No. 98 player in the country and the ninth overall prospect at his position, according to Rivals.com.
Holding offers from some of the top programs in the country—Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, among others—Davis ultimately chose Mack Brown’s Texas Longhorns. In the end, the allure of “DBU” and its architect, Defensive Backs coach Duane Akina, was too much for Davis to pass up.
Davis verbally committed to the Horns in early May of 2012, and despite constant contact from competing coaching staffs, remained true to his word throughout the recruiting process.
Along with fellow incoming freshmen Erik Huhn and Chevoski Collins (Collins was recruited as an athlete but is likely to end up on the defensive side of the ball), Davis enters an always-talented Texas secondary. Senior Carrington Byndom and junior Quandre Diggs have the starting corner spots on lockdown, with promising sophomore Duke Thomas poised to push for more playing time. But in the pass-happy Big 12, there’s always a need for quality cover guys, so Davis will have every opportunity to see the field early and often—especially if Diggs slides over to replace the departed Kenny Vaccaro, as has been rumored.
