If Harrison choses not to play because of COVID-19 concerns, he’ll become the fourth Longhorns player to do so.

Another Texas Longhorns player will reportedly sit out the 2020 season, as Anwar Richardson of Orangebloods reported on Thursday that freshman wide receiver Dajon Harrison has opted out due to coronavirus concerns.

Three other Longhorns previously made the same decision — senior running back Daniel Young, redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Willie Tyler, and senior defensive end Marqez Bimage.

A member of the 2020 recruiting class who was briefly committed to TCU last year, Texas landed a November commitment from the 5’10, 170-pounder. Harrison played both ways at Hutto, producing nearly 1,000 total yards rushing and receiving in 2019, in addition to an interception, even though his season was cut short after nine games due to a leg injury.

Harrison finished the cycle ranked as a consensus three-star prospect, the No. 541 player nationally, and the No. 87 wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.

In the battle to replace Devin Duvernay in the slot, Harrison was competing with sophomore Jake Smith and redshirt freshman Jordan Whittington, but was expected to redshirt in 2020.
