Bevo Bites: 5-star 2020 RB keeping a close eye on Texas in 2018

Burnt Orange Nation saw several Texas targets in action over the weekend.

2020 Texas RB target Zachary Evans
Joe Hamilton - SB Nation

Prospects with a Texas offer:

2020 North Shore RB Zach Evans

-As of now, Texas is in a very good position with the nation’s top 2020 running back. The UT staff communicates with Evans frequently and is making him a top priority. Evans is showing no signs of letting up as he’s gearing up for a big junior campaign. In the meantime, Evans is focused on his teammates and trying to obtain a state championship with a loaded squad this season. He’ll be keeping a close eye on the Longhorns the entire season.

2021 Richmond Foster OT Rueben Fatheree

-Fatheree has already earned an early offer from the Longhorns and after seeing him in action this week at practice it’s pretty evident why. The 6’8, 290-pound offensive tackle moves exceptionally well and is more coordinated than most athletes his age. For Fatheree to be the size he is and moving the way he does, it’s more than impressive. With basketball being a sport Fatheree has always taken serious, it has ultimately helped him in the long run by providing himself nifty feet that are beneficial to him while holding off pass rushers. Texas is in a good spot with Fatheree early in his recruiting process.

On UT’s radar:

2021 North Shore WR Shadrach Banks

-Many label Banks as an athlete, but he primarily lines up as wide-out for his high school. Just get Banks the ball and he’ll make plays for you. Banks is being heavily recruited by a plethora of Power 5 programs and is just getting started on the recruiting trail as he heads into his sophomore year. He’s been in talks with the Texas coaching staff and was one of the rising young prospects that attended the Stars at Night camp last month. Banks believes that he’s definitely close to earning an offer from the Longhorns. Expect Banks to rise on UT’s recruiting board during the season.

2020 North Shore OL Damieon George

-George has the attributes to be very dominant and special down the line. It’ll be hard miss the 6’6 offensive tackle hovering over defenders on Friday nights. George is extremely raw, but his intangibles have stood out to the 16 programs that have offered him. Schools like Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, Ohio State, and USC are just a few that are inquiring for George’s service. George would be interested in Texas if he was presented an offer.

2020 Richmond Foster DL Chidozie Nwankwo

-What stands out about Nwankwo more than his physical attributes is his character and ability to lead his teammates. He kept a consistent energy during practice earlier this week that evidently rubbed off on his teammates. Nwankwo is obviously a man amongst boys, already as a rising junior. You’ll hardly ever see him lose reps and majority of the time he’s tremendously stronger than the opponent he’s lined up against. Texas had been in talks with Nwankwo much earlier in his recruiting process, but recently talks between the two parties have died down a bit. Nwankwo is hoping that the Texas coaching staff will eventually reestablish their interest and communication with him.

Prospects to watch:

2021 North Shore QB Dematrius Davis

-Davis gets overlooked at times because he doesn’t possess that natural prototypical size right now. But he’s easily one of the top quarterbacks in the state for the 2021 cycle. Davis showed what he was made of when he moved up to varsity midway through the season and took over as the starter for one of the hottest programs in the state. As a freshman he helped lead his team to the third round of the playoffs. Davis has earned himself three early offers (Baylor, Howard, and Memphis). If Texas was to put an offer on the table, Davis says they would be a top school for him.

2021 Richmond Foster ATH Cody Jackson

-Cody Jackson is a rising sophomore that will be a dynamic play-maker in his first season on varsity. He’ll play some quarterback, but we’ll be utilized mostly as a skill position player. Jackson holds offers from Baylor and Texas State. Jackson loves the Texas program and could see himself playing in their offense.
