Duvernay

Baylor likes the sound of Devin and Donovan Duvernay.

Sachse star receiver Devin Duvernay committed to Baylor on Friday, and will join twin brother Donovan, a receiver-defensive back who committed in September.

“I’ve known (Baylor coach) Art Briles a long time and I think he’s going to be very excited to have both of them,” Sachse coach Mark Behrens said. “I think both of those guys won’t miss a beat.”

Devin isn’t just one of the top receiver prospects in the state, he’s one of the fastest players in the country. He won the Class 6A meet with a time of 10.27 seconds in the 100 meters last spring.

The 5-11, 178-pound Devin Duvernay enjoyed a tremendous senior year for Sachse as he collected 62 catches for 1,142 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also rushed 520 yards and six scores.

“Devin has great hands and is very explosive,” Behrens said. “He’s also a very physical young man and a great blocker.”

Behrens used both Devin and Donovan as slot receivers which drove defenses crazy. Donovan made 38 catches for 520 yards and eight touchdowns this fall.

“Donovan is more of a side to side kind of guy and Devin just goes straight downfield,” Behrens said. “They complement each other real well.”

Devin’s commitment will give the Bears 17 in the 2016 class.
