One of the Texas Longhorns top defensive back prospects this cycle will utilize one of his official visits on a trip to the Forty Acres.
Jaden Davis, one of the nation’s most coveted cornerback prospects out of Fort Lauderdale (Fl.) St. Thomas Aquinas, has reportedly scheduled his official visit to Texas for May 4, per 247Sports’ EJ Holland.
After Texas extended an offer on Jan 16, Davis included the Longhorns in his top 10 shortly thereafter on Feb. 8. Ohio State, Florida, Syracuse, Georgia, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Penn State, Wisconsin and Miami were also named as his top schools.
Along with his newly-scheduled tour to Texas, Davis has already planned official visits to Oklahoma for April 13, and Penn State for April 20. Kentucky is also expected to receive one of Davis’ five official visits.
An elite prospect with 44 offers to date, Davis joins talents such as Derek Stingley, Chris Steele, Erick Young, Jeffrey Carter and Marcus Banks as key Texas targets at the position.
However, Florida stands as the perceived favorite with 60 percent of Davis’ Crystal Ball projections, adding importance to his official visit if Texas hopes to lure the Sunshine State product away from home, and potentially, pick up its first cornerback pledge this cycle.
A 5-foot-9, 166-pound talent, Davis is ranked as the nation’s No. 203 player, No. 20 cornerback and the No. 30 player in Florida, per the 247Sports Composite.
