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.
Great way to finish off a big day in ATX! #LetsRide
