Several months after entering the NCAA Transfer Portal in early January, former Texas Longhorns cornerback Donovan Duvernay has found another home, as he has reportedly transferred to Northwestern State, per 247Sports’ Chris Hummer.

A member of Charlie Strong’s final class in Austin, Duvernay originally signed with Baylor on National Signing Day in 2016. However, Duvernay, along with his brother Devin Duvernay, who starred at receiver for the Longhorns before being selected in the 2020 NFL Draft, ultimately landed in Austin in the wake of the sexual assault scandal that took play at Baylor.

Duvernay signed to Texas as a three-star athlete prospect ranked No. 881 overall and as the No. 114 player in Texas, per the 247Sports Composite.

During his four years in Austin, including a redshirt season in 2016, Duvernay appeared in 12 games in a reserve role, totaling two tackles and one pass deflection, which all came during Texas’ win over Rice last season.

With a host of young players already ahead of Duvernay on the depth chart, he wasn’t projected as a contributor in 2020.

Duvernay will have one season of eligibility remaining.
