Texas hosted a handful of commits for its game against Kansas this past weekend, including four-star cornerback D’shawn Jamison.

The Houston Lamar product was impressed with the Longhorns’ win and is excited about the future of the program.

“Coach Herman is still taking time with the team and trying to turn around the program,” he said. “I feel like once next year comes, he’ll know how to handle everybody in that program.”

Texas took a hit defensively last week when star cornerback Holton Hill was suspended for the remainder of the season.

Jamison attends the same high school Hill graduated from and has followed his career at Texas closely. While he understands losing Hill hurts, he believes the Texas defense will be just fine.

“It shouldn’t affect them as long as they keep the momentum up,” Jamison said. “If they keep playing for the team and not individuals, they’ll finish hard and not let anything distract them”

Jamison committed to Texas in October over a number of major offers.

At 5-foot-10, 174 pounds, Jamison is ranked as the No. 18 cornerback in the country and No. 15 overall prospect in the state, per 247Sports Composite.
