Jamaica’s rising track and field star Kevona Davis has signed with the University of Texas.
Davis, who is wrapping up six form studies at Edwin Allen, accepted the scholarship offer earlier this week.
“A world-class addition to the Texas Family,” was how Texas Longhorne described the development.
“I feel great in signing for the University of Texas as I had done my research in the past, and this was the school of my choice,” Davis was quoted by The Gleaner saying.
Davis stamped her class on Champs. She won Class 2 100m titles with 11.16s (a record) and 11.18s in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
The 18-year-old also ran a personal best 22.72 to win the Class 2 girls’ 200m in 2018.
“This is a dream come true for me,” she said while adding “despite what people were thinking, I really had my mind set on continuing my academics and was not thinking about going professional.”
