#10 Donnie Starks
Position: Defensive Back
Previous College: None
Status: On Scholarship
Donovan Starks (b. June 6, 1994) is a speedy defensive back who has seen limited action during the last two years, but will compete for increased playing time in 2015. He's currently projected to start at the nickelback spot.
Starks originally was slated for a grayshirt in 2012, but the sudden glut of available scholarships resulting from mass defections from the prior two recruiting classes opened a wide door for him to step though.
He redshirted in 2012 and saw time in the Louisiana game in 2013, but did not record any statistics.
Starks then saw time in four games last season and came away with five tackles, including one for a loss. He recorded three tackles against UTEP, while his lone tackle for loss was against Oklahoma State.
He 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 picks with a TD, and also ran track for two years.
