The tentatively-planned Monday visit for Sachse wide receiver Devin Duvernay to see the Texas Longhorns turned out to be exactly that, as ESPN's Gerry Hamilton reports that Duvernay will now visit Austin and Fort Worth this weekend instead.

Ever since news broke that the Baylor Bears somehow failed to file Duvernay's NLI with the Big 12 office last week, the Longhorns and Horned Frogs have been considered the frontrunners. Now, Hamilton says that the Oklahoma Sooners are also in the mix. It's not clear if there are any other schools that Duvernay is seriously looking at, but his father has received interest from numerous programs around college football, so he won't lack choice if he decides to look beyond those three schools.

Perhaps the biggest factor in the star wide receiver's second recruitment may be Duvernay's twin brother, Donovan, who also signed with Baylor, but hasn't gotten out of his NLI yet. At 5'9, 175 pounds, Donovan is a mid three-star prospect who may not have a natural position. Texas never offered him during the recruiting process, so it remains to be seen whether head coach Charlie Strong would extend him an offer with three or four other Baylor players possibly interested in Texas in the event that they receive an eventual release. Perhaps a grayshirt offer would make the most sense.

If Duvernay does choose Texas, he projects as an instant-impact contributor in the slot.
