Texas CB target Davante Davis sets announcement date

The Longhorns may not have much control in whether the Florida prospect ends up in Austin.

Following the commitment of Gilmer cornerback Kris Boyd on Christmas day, the next defensive back domino to fall for the Texas Longhorns will be Miami (Fla.) Booker T Washington cornerback Davante Davis, who revealed his announcement date via Twitter on Tuesday:

As the tweet indicates, the New Year's Day decision will be between the Longhorns and the Seminoles, the two programs that he recently declared to be his co-leaders.

The consensus four-star prospect is still believed to be a Florida State lean by those close to the program. In fact, Davis might have already committed to head coach Jimbo Fisher and his staff except for the fact that the Noles only have one spot left at defensive back and have been angling for commitments from top-flight prospects like Boyd or California star Iman Marshall.

The fact that Boyd will likely come off the board in favor of Texas within the next 24 hours or so could push Florida State to take a commitment from Davis with several more highly-rated prospects still left on the board.

As disappointing as it may be for the Longhorns, taking Boyd could keep Texas from picking up Davis, too.

But with Houston Lamar cornerback Holton Hill still a strong possibility and several other defensive backs considering head coach Charlie Strong's program, the Horns should still be able to finish out the class with at least two cornerbacks even if Davis decides he's headed to Tallahassee.

The good news with Davis, though, is that several predictions for the Longhorns have been cast in Davis' 247Sports Crystal Ball.
