The addition of consensus four-star offensive tackle JP Urquidez on Saturday for the Texas Longhorns was the second in the last week, joining the nation’s No 4 wide receiver, Devin Duvernay, but there could be more to come, according to two Longhorns players:
On Friday, Baylor also released offensive lineman Patrick Hudson, cornerback Parrish Cobb, running back Kameron Martin, and athlete Donovan Duvernay, Devin’s twin brother.
Texas is currently at the 85-man scholarship limit for the 2016 class, but two signees still aren’t on campus and two walk ons received scholarships last season that head coach Charlie Strong could choose not to renew.
So look for a spot to open up for Donovan Duvernay in the next few days, as he is still widely regarded as a package deal with his more highly-rated brother.
Next on the list is probably Patrick Hudson, a 2016 Under Armour All-American and the nation’s No. 2 offensive guard, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. There was some buzz that Hudson was on a visit to Austin on Saturday, but he’s already used his official visit with Texas, so he ended up at Oklahoma instead.
Still, the Longhorns are probably still the favorite with Hudson, assuming that a second spot comes open to accommodate him.
Then there’s Cobb, who considered taking a trip to Texas prior to National Signing Day, but never visited. Oklahoma is also a contender for him, as he was a long-time pledge to the Sooners before ending up with the Bears.
So there’s a solid chance that the tweets from Jones and Boyd prove prophetic, as long as the needed space opens up.
