The now-trademark #40AcresFamily tweet sent out by new Texas Longhorns baseball coach David Pierce for new commitments had a new twist to it on Tuesday — two cow emojis, as two 2019 prospects announced their pledges.

The latest additions are shortstop Jaden Woodson of Dallas Jesuit and second baseman Brenden Dixon of Argyle.
Woodson is a 6’1, 175-pounder who also played football at Trinity Christian in Addison as a freshman and scored 12 touchdowns as a wide receiver and kick returner. Based on his speed on the football field, Woodson is a player who will be a threat to steal bases in college and stretch singles into doubles.
Several clips on Twitter also show Woodson’s ability to keep his swing short and hit the ball through holes instead of trying to do too much with it.
And if the last name and football acumen ring a bell, it’s because his father is former Dallas Cowboys safety Darren Woodson, so he comes by his athleticism naturally.
The two players form the double-play tandem for a select team in the Dallas area and currently intend on continuing that partnership with the Longhorns.
