In their third announcement of the week, Dallas Call of Duty has revealed that Cuyler “Huke” Garland will join their 2020 roster. Already announcing the additions of James “Clayster” Eubanks and Anthony “Shotzzy” Cuevas-Castro, Dallas has formed a three-headed monster with Huke on board. However, Dallas still has two more roster spots to fill, which they will announce on Thursday and Friday this week. After their roster has been fully revealed, the organization will hold a live stream to showcase their brand. Expect that stream to start sometime on Saturday, Oct 19.
Huke is universally thought to be one of the top young talents in professional Call of Duty. He started his career in Ghosts, only competing in a few tournaments, but made a name for himself in Advanced Warfare. Competing mainly under Denial Esports, Huke reached 5 grand finals during Advanced Warfare. That said, he never took the next step and brought home a championship.

After Advanced Warfare, Huke was required to stop competing in Call of Duty due to the new age restrictions. Activision put an 18-year-old and above rule into place, meaning Huke had to step away for both Black Ops 3 and Infinite Warfare. During that time, he competed in professional Halo, like his now-teammate Shotzzy.
After turning 18, he found his way onto the Team Envy roster for the WWII season. While they didn’t have much success, it was obvious that Huke was one of the top young players in the league. He began the Black Ops 4 season still on Envy, but they loaned him to Splyce halfway through the season. Huke still has not won a major championship in professional Call of Duty.
With Huke now officially on the roster, Dallas is looking like the top team in the CDL thus far. A handful of teams still haven’t made any announcements, but Dallas will remain one of the top teams heading into Modern Warfare regardless.

As for the rest of Dallas’ roster, those announcements are coming on Thursday and Friday of this week. However, we already know with 99% certainty who Dallas will reveal thanks to @INTELCallofDuty. Here’s the alleged Dallas Call of Duty roster:
If this roster turns out to be official, Dallas will be hard to stop when the Call of Duty League starts in 2020.
