Stanford Offers 4-Star Texas Receiver

One of the top 2016 prospects in Texas picked up a new Pac-12 offer Wednesday afternoon.

Devin Duvernay continues to be one of the most heavily-recruited players in the Lone Star State's 2016 class.

The receiver from Sachse -- pronounced SACK-see, a Dallas suburb to the east -- reported his latest offer Wednesday afternoon from Stanford.



Stanford is the 23rd overall offer for Duvernay, who is a high four-star prospect by Scout.com, which ranks him No. 2 among receivers and No. 20 overall nationally among prospects in the 2016 class.

Stanford is also the third Pac-12 offer for Duvernay, who already held offers from Oregon State and UCLA.

Duvernay has offers from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Baylor, Clemson, Miami, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Wisconsin, among others.

The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Duvernay has great speed and athleticism and is the type of receiver who can turn a quick hitch into a home run. As a sophomore in 2013, Duvernay caught 46 passes for 774 yards and 11 touchdowns. He also ran for 267 yards and two touchdowns, accounting for 1,041 yards from scrimmage.

Duvernay's 14.7 yards per touch on his 71 combined receptions and carries a year ago are further proof of his explosiveness.

Duvernay will be a key part of a talented Sachse squad that went 11-1 in 2013. The Sachse offense will feature Duvernay and 2015 three-star running back Devine Ozigbo, who is committed to Iowa State. The 5-foot-11, 230-pound Ozigbo ran for 948 yards as a junior, when he also caught 24 passes for 315 yards and two scores.

Defensively, Sachse features Scout 2016 four-star cornerback Jared Mayden, who has more than 20 offers.

Scout ranks Duvernay and the 6-foot, 190-pound Mayden as the No. 4 and No. 8 players in the state of Texas' 2016 class, respectively.
