Update: David Abiara announced on Wednesday he will be playing college football at Texas.


A significant number of college football recruits for the class of 2021 signed their national letters of intent in the Early Signing Period in December, but there are plenty of talented prospects announcing their decision on National Signing Day including defensive end David Abiara. Players in the 2021 class can sign on National Signing Day on Wednesday, Feb. 3 and can do so anytime before the Aug. 1 deadline.

Let’s get to know a little more about Abiara and where he might end up. He is expected to announce his decision on Wednesday morning here.

David Abiara Recruiting bio

David Abiara is a three-star defensive end according to the 247Sports Composite player rankings and attends Mansfield Legacy High School in Mansfield, Texas. He is ranked 359th nationally in the composite and is the 24th-highest ranked strong-side defensive end and No. 51 prospect from the state of Texas.

Abiara committed to Notre Dame in March 2020 but decommitted from the Irish in late November, opening up his recruitment. He stands at 6-foot-4 and 248 pounds.

Offer list

Abiara’s full FBS scholarship offer list according to 247Sports includes Alabama, Arizona State, Baylor, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State, LSU, Michigan State, Minnesota, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Tulsa, Utah, Virginia Tech, Washington State and Wisconsin.


Where’s he headed?

One of the most important keys to Texas finally being “back” is keeping the talent inside the state, and that appears to be the case here as Abiara is expected to be the latest member of the Texas Longhorns‘ 2021 recruiting class according to 247Sports and Rivals.

Abiara being ranked 51st in the state just shows how incredible the talent is inside of Texas. The Longhorns are ranked as the No. 17 class in the country, which ranks second in the Big 12. If Steve Sarkisian can continue to keep in-state players home, Texas could return to its powerhouse status.
