WR Demariyon Houston, CB Marques Caldwell Push Texas into Top 10 of 2019 Rankings

NCAA Football: Texas at Texas Tech

The Longhorns added two big commitments on Saturday with four-star wide receiver Demariyon Houston and cornerback Marques Caldwell both confirming they will be heading to Austin as part of the Class of 2019.


Houston is a four-star wide receiver from Oklahoma City who picked the Longhorns over offers from Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Alabama and Auburn. Houston is 6′, 165 and was injured last season, but still had 20 catches for over 500 yards. He’s known for his speed as he runs track and notched a 10.71-second 100-meter dash last year.

Caldwell is a three-star player who went with UT over his other top choices of TCU and Ole Miss. Caldwell is joining what looks to be a second-straight Texas class that will be impressively heavy on defensive backs, joining four-star California safety Chris Adimora and four-star Georgia product Kenyatta Watson II as Class of 2019 commits.

With these two commitments, Texas is now ranked in the top 10 for the Class of 2019, according to 247Sports, and is second behind the Oklahoma Sooners, who remain in the top 5.
