Four-star defender J’Mond Tapp gave a new meaning to the double threat on Thursday evening.
The Texas commitment accounted for 64 tackles and 5.5 sacks last season at Ascension Catholic High School and will head to Austin next year to adapt and play on the Longhorns ’defensive line.
The Donaldsonville, Louisiana native is truly a player of all kinds. Tapp had the opportunity to show off his skills on the offensive side of the ball on September 16th. Yes, you read that right.
The 6-foot 3-foot, 245-pound runner also doubled as a wild quarterback in his teams ’30-8 victory over Hannan. Tapp got the ball in the red zone and the rest was history.
Recently @TexasLonghorns commit 4 🌟 DE @jmondtapp also known as “QB3” always helps his squad on the defensive side of the ball. However, tonight, in the 30-8 win over Hannan, he was also able to show off his QB skills. See it 😂 #LlegendsOnly 💫 pic.twitter.com/37o7RpDgN8

Texas hopes that when Tapp finally reaches the Forty Acres, he will become an impact player on a defensive line that doesn’t yet have someone to consolidate as the group leader this season.
Tapp offers great athletics as he is a three sport athlete and who knows, maybe there will be a chance to direct the ball to the end zone from time to time.
