A third Baylor football signee detours and picks Texas

Posted June 25th, 2016


Arguably the greatest signing class in the history of Baylor football is coming unglued, and Texas is benefitting.

Late Saturday, three-star athlete Donovan Duvernay of Garland Sachse became the third defection among the Bears’ signees to scratch plans and choose Texas. He follows his twin brother, four-star receiver Devin Duvernay, as well as four-star offensive tackle JP Urquidez of Copperas Cove.

The raid could continue with two more Baylor signees — guard Patrick Hudson (Silsbee) and cornerback Parrish Cobb (Waco La Vega) — said to be considering Texas after breaking out of their letter of intent with Baylor. Texas is thought to have room for both of them. A third Baylor defection, ex-Port Arthur Memorial running back Kameron Martin, told 247Sports he is no longer considering Texas and will sign with TCU or Auburn.


It’s unclear if Texas sees Donovan Duvernay (5-foot,9-inches, 177 pounds) as a wide receiver or as a defensive back. His commitment came hours after Urquidez made the move and brings the class to 27 members.
