Baylor 4-Star WR Signee Devin Duvernay Now Uncommitted, Bears Never Sent In His NLI

Devin Duvernay, one of the top wide receivers in the 2016 class, has been freed of his commitment to Baylor. 

The four-star wide receiver had been seeking a release from his National Letter of Intent since the Bears' fired Art Briles amid the program's sexual assault scandal, but it turns out his NLI is not valid. According to ESPN, Baylor never sent in Duvernay's NLI paperwork, so he's able to sign elsewhere. 

Duvernay, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound prospect out of Texas, is ranked the No. 4 WR and No. 36 player in the class by 247Sports' Composite Rankings

Devin's twin brother, Donovan, a three-star athlete, also signed with Baylor, but the Bears did send in his NLI paperwork, so he still needs to be released by the school.

Texas, Texas A&M and Oklahoma were believed to be in contention to land the brothers before they committed to Baylor. 

At this time, it's unclear where they'll end up.
