In a tight game in Morgantown, Texas Longhorns sophomore cornerback D’Shawn Jamison came up with an Interception of the Year nominee with his leaping pick against West Virginia Mountaineers wide receiver Sam James.
Yes, DB youth can be frustrating. But when Texas coaches talk about the athleticism on the back end, this is what they're talking about. pic.twitter.com/lb9XahS93x— Brian Davis (@BDavisAAS) October 5, 2019
James nearly came down with the catch after showing his own strong hands on a touchdown catch and a diving reception along the sideline to set up a late field-goal attempt in the first half. The hands of Jamison were stronger, though, and he wrestled the ball away as they went to the ground.
It was art in motion for Jamison, who spent last season playing offense.

The interception was the first of Jamison’s career in the midst of a strong performance.
Unfortunately, Texas wasn’t able to capitalize on the turnover and went three and out.
