Attempted Baylor WR signee Devin Duvernay visiting Texas today

New, comments

This may be the last real chance Texas has to keep Duvernay from becoming a Sooner.

Four-star wide receiver and attempted Baylor Bears signee Devin Duvernay is reportedly on the Forty Acres today visiting the Texas Longhornsper 247Sports. It's a huge opportunity for Charlie Strong and his staff to lure the nation's No. 4 wide receiver to Austin, as Duvernay is set to take a tour and the campus and facilities and meet with the coaching staff.

At this point, it appears Texas is amid a three-school race for Duvernay's services, along with TCU and Oklahoma, though ESPN's Gerry Hamilton believes that the 'Horns and Horned Frogs lead. A potential determining factor in this equation could be Kyler Murray, the former Texas A&M quarterback who is now at Oklahoma. Murray is Duvernay's cousin, which could make for a lethal duo the Texas' secondary would be tasked with slowing down for the next few seasons.

Oklahoma may be the team to beat, but the instant-impact Duvernay could have as a slot receiver because of his ability to make plays in space would be a crucial addition to an offense that likely sees early enrollee quarterback Shane Buechele start against Notre Dame.

Another factor could be what ultimately happens with Duvernay's twin brother, Donovan, who is still waiting for Baylor to make a determination on releasing him from his NLI with the Bears. He holds an offer from TCU, not but Texas or Oklahoma.
