Bio

Position: Defensive Back

Previous College: None

Projection: Third-String

Status: On Scholarship

Donovan Starks (b. June 6, 1994) is a speedy defensive back who looked be in position for playing time as a true freshman before using a redshirt season. He likely will push for playing time again this season at cornerback.

Starks originally was slated for a grayshirt in 2012, but the sudden glut of available scholarships resulting from mass defections from the last two recruiting classes opened a gaping void for him to step into.

Starks was District 19-4A Newcomer of the Year as a sophomore at Crosby High School and an all-district cornerback as a senior. He had 189 solo tackles, 44 assisted tackles and six interceptions with a touchdown.

Starks also ran track for two years. You can watch his high school highlights here.
