The recruiting staff at Texas has slowly accumulated an array of offensive weapons in their 2021 class. With top-50 national recruits in Denton Ryan’s Ja’Tavion Sanders and Billy Bowman Jr., 4-star quarterback Jalen Milroe, tight end commit Landen King, and pass-protection from 4-star Hayden Conner, Texas is assembling solid components for an explosive offense.
The list doesn’t end there.
The Longhorns have also received a commitment from Everman three-star athlete, and a player who does it all, Juan Davis.
After his sophomore season Davis received three offers from Southern Miss, Baylor, and Texas. Two months after the latter offer, Davis committed to the Longhorns via Twitter.
“UT always made me feel like I was at home each and every time I was there,” Davis said.
As a sophomore, the 6’4” near 220-pound athlete was a first-team all-district selection catching 41 balls for 499 yards and seven touchdowns.
As a junior, he took a step back in terms of receiving, only catching six balls for 113 yards. He also played quarterback, throwing for almost 400 yards and six touchdowns. In addition, Davis was the leading rusher with 895 yards and 12 touchdowns. And he was the team’s punter and blocked two punts on the other side of the ball.
It’s easy to see that Davis does it all for the Everman Bulldogs.
“Football! I just love playing the game of football,” Davis said on what leads to his personal success.
Everman under Davis’ star power has made it to the playoffs each of the past two years, yet hasn’t notched a playoff victory yet. Davis wants to make sure he puts the whole state on notice in his final year as a Bulldog.
“There’s nothing else really I’d like to accomplish before arriving at UT,” Davis said. “I just want to go all out my last year of high school.”
The COVID-19 Pandemic isn’t slowing down Davis or his work ethic as he still finds ways to remain in shape during this global crisis.
“I get up with my mom every day and we go run a couple of miles,” Davis said.
Davis, after he plays every position on offense again for the Bulldogs, has some very simple goals that will go a long way when he’s a Longhorn.
“A goal I’d like to have when I start at UT is just to give 110% every practice, game, etc.”
The multi-sport star has been a freak of nature thus far in his athletic career. He’s been a machine at the high school level, no matter what sport he tries.
In Track and Field as a sophomore, he ran a 24 second flat 200-meters and registered a 43’ mark in the triple jump. Who knows how much more those marks could’ve improved if the track season was allowed to conclude.
At the end of the day Juan Davis just wants Longhorns fans to know one thing about him.
“When Juan Davis hits the field, it’s showtime!”
