On his personal Twitter account Wednesday night, Dauphine (pictured, No. 21) confirmed that he will continue his collegiate playing career at Tulane. The running back will have to sit out the 2017 season to satisfy NCAA transfer bylaws.
In 2018, Dauphine would then see the field for the first of his two remaining seasons of eligibility.

A four-star 2015 recruit, Dauphine was rated as the No. 18 running back in the country and the No. 31 player at any position in the state of Texas. He was the highest-rated Red Raider recruit on the offensive side of the ball.
Dauphine chose Tech over offers from, among others, Baylor, Florida, Michigan, TCU, Tennessee and Texas A&M.
After taking a redshirt as a true freshman, Dauphine had two carries for 25 yards and a touchdown in 2016. He appeared in a total of three games.
