After seeing his recruitment take off throughout the early months of 2017, four-star Houston Lamar cornerback D’shawn Jamison has trimmed his list to 10 schools.
As expected following a weekend unofficial visit to Texas, the Longhorns made the cut, along with Michigan, USC, TCU, Tennessee, Penn State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Florida and Duke.
A teammate of five-star Longhorns priority cornerback target Anthony Cook, Jamison, too, is seeing plenty of attention come his way from Austin, and the interest is certainly mutual.
To date, the Longhorns are the only program to receive a visit from the 5’10, 174-pound cornerback.
Considered an undersized prospect by some, what the in-state defensive back lacks in size, he’s proven time and time again that he makes up for with on-field skill and tenacity, as he did during The Opening Regionals in Houston earlier this month.
Going forward, don’t expect Texas’ cornerbacks coach Jason Washington to relent his pursuit of one of state’s fast-rising prospects. In a state that’s absolutely loaded with defensive back talent during a cycle in which the Texas staff understands the significance of keeping talent at home, expect to hear much more about Jamison around the Forty Acres.
To that end, Jamison will be in attendance for Texas’ Feb. 25 junior day for his second trip to Austin in a week.
The Houston native ranks as the nation’s No. 162 player, the No. 20 cornerback and the No. 18 player in Texas, per 247Sports Composite.
