To answer your first question "if he takes a deferred adjudication plea will the parole board still revoke him "
Generally the parole board counts a deferred adjudication as a conviction for their purposes and will revoke parole.
To answer your second question " what are his chances are staying on parole"
It is very likely that he will not be able to remain on parole.
Texas is not as prone to revoking parole as they were a few years ago but the commission of another crime is one which will usually get a revocation issued. Also, the burden of proof necessary for a violation of parole (or probation for that matter) is much lower than it is for a conviction in a criminal court.
