The UIL State Executive Committee denied 5-star wide receiver Demond Demas his eligibility at Tomball High School, which is 35 miles north of Houston, by a unanimous 6-0 vote on Tuesday, according to The Old Coach’s Nick Harris.

Demas, who is committed to Texas A&M, was a Class 4A first-team all-state selection last season while at Houston North Forest. He recorded 1,574 yards receiving and 23 touchdowns.

Demas transferred to Tomball in January, according to the Houston Chronicle.

According to Demas, he went to Tomball for a “better environment and better academics.” He tweeted on Tuesday that he will not transfer back to North Forest and will stay at Tomball.

“Believe me I’m not going back to North Forest, I’m staying at Tomball High School for the better environment and better academics. I know God has better plans for me,” Demas said in a tweet.

Ranked as the No. 2 WR in the country and top WR in the state among the 2020 class, Demas participated in The Opening Finals in July from The Star in Frisco.

Demas also ranks No. 13 overall in the nation. He is the second-best player in Texas, only behind running back Zach Evans from Galena Park North Shore.
