When the rest of the 2016 Texas Longhorns class arrives in Austin over the next several days for the first summer session, they will be able to carry their school supplies around campus in style, thanks to some custom KD-branded backpacks courtesy of Nike and the Longhorns alum:
Thanks to @UTexasEquipment/@KDTrey5 for hooking up the guys coming this weekend! #swagbag #hooKD pic.twitter.com/SwYVAmsVWy— Texas Football (@TexasFB) May 26, 2016
The perk is part of last year's apparel deal with Nike that was record-setting at the time -- Durant helped Texas and Nike come to terms that included co-branded apparel between Durant and Nike. And so it looks like head coach Charlie Strong's second signing class will be the first group to truly benefit from that arrangement.
The backpacks retail for $90, but the burnt orange colorway doesn't appear to be available publicly. Bummer.
