Just last week, it was determined that five-star wide receiver Devin Duvernay’s National Letter of Intent with Baylor was invalid after his father began the process for him to request a release from that same letter. Now, he is free to sign elsewhere and it looks like he has already narrowed his decision down to three schools.
Duvernay spoke with ESPN’s Gerry Hamilton and said that there are three schools he has been speaking with exclusively. Those three schools are very familiar with Baylor as they are all in the Big 12.
“Thursday was most definitely the most hectic day of my recruitment,” Duvernay said. “… It surprised me. I expected to get quite a few calls and messages, but I didn’t expect what happened.
“I’ve just been talking to Texas, OU and TCU,” Duvernay said. “I’m pretty sure [the decision] will come from those three schools.”
Devin Duvernay was the Bears’ top-rated signee in their 2016 class, but he decided to leave amid all the sexual assault allegations and head coach Art Briles being fired over a week ago. He has also received calls from Florida State, Ohio State and defending national champion Alabama among others.
Duvernay is not alone in his departure from Baylor as as many as six signees have asked for their release from the school. One of those players was his twin brother Donovan, a three-star athlete.
