  05/24/22 - Tarique MiltonrSr/2023, Texas, 5-09, 195 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian added another top player on Monday, with Iowa State wide receiver Tarique Milton announcing he would be playing for the Longhorns next season. Milton revealed his destination via Twitter on Monday afternoon, releasing a statement. He has been in the transfer portal since the 2021 season ended, waiting until spring practices were over to make a decision. Staying within the Big 12, Milton will be heading down to Austin for his final year. "I'd like to thank all of the college programs and coaches who have reached out to me during my time in the portal," Milton said.

Milton spent five seasons with Iowa State, originally being a member of the 2017 recruiting class. Once he was on campus in Ames, the wide receiver took a redshirt year. Add in the COVID-19 eligibility rule and Milton is able to play a sixth year of college football. During his redshirt sophomore campaign, Milton caught 35 passes for 722 yards and three touchdowns. The thought was that Milton would breakout and become one of the best wide receivers in the conference. However, he has not been able to put up similar numbers ever since. Milton had just 30 catches for 380 yards and three touchdowns over his last two years. - Tarique Miltons twitter and online sources

  05/20/22 - Agiye HallSo/2025, Texas, 6-2, 195 (DS#8 WR) + More +

  Over the past 24 hours, rumors and reports have been rampant about the status of Texas transfer Agiye Hall. Social media ignited a firestorm Tuesday after speculation about the receiver not being on the Longhorns' online roster. In addition, all mentions of Texas on Hall's social media platforms appeared to be scrubbed. The speculation isn't entirely without precedent. Last month, Hall's name was removed from Alabama's roster. He took to Twitter to let people know it was news to him. The next day Nick Saban announced Hall was no longer a member of the team. Hall reacted by entering the transfer portal.

Fast forward a month. His name isn't on the Texas roster. On Wednesday, the Texas coach addressed the situation. Sarkisian, who was at the Texas Fight Tour stop in Houston, told those in attendance, per Jeff Howe of 247 Sports, that Hall has signed a financial aid agreement with Texas. It is reported the agreement binds the school to the player, but not the player to the school. "We feel good about that," he said, per 247Sports. - Birmingham News

  05/13/22 - Joshua MoorerSr/2023, Texas, 6-1, 168 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Former Texas Longhorns wide receiver Joshua Moore will not enroll at SMU, as previously expected, according to Dallas Morning News reporter Joseph Hoyt. "Been hinting at it in some previous stories, but multiple sources indicate former Texas WR Joshua Moore is not expected to come to SMU," Hoyt tweeted. "Helps explain why SMU added two transfer WRs this week in former Texas WR Kelvontay Dixon and former Miss. State WR Teddy Knox."

The Yoakum, Texas, native originally committed to Texas Tech, then changed his mind and announced he would play for new Mustangs head coach Rhett Lashlee. Moore came into the 2021 season as the leading returning receiver for Texas and was waiting to explode under new head coach Steve Sarkisian. He was able to haul in 24 catches for 265 receiving yards and three touchdown catches on the year. Moore was a top 100 recruit coming out of high school, being ranked the No. 96 overall prospect in the On3 Consensus. He was the No. 16 player at the wide receiver position and No. 9 within the state of Texas. - Dallas Morning News

  Agiye Hall is feeling the love at Texas. The former Alabama wide receiver, who transferred to Steve Sarkisian's Longhorns program, pointed that out in a recent interview. While doing so, he took the opportunity to make it known he couldn't say the same about Tuscaloosa. "One thing that really stood out is the culture. Bama fans - they're not really loving, if I could say - even when you leave," Hall told Horns247. "Texas fans are like a family. They love you unconditionally. They want the best for you and want to make sure you're striving to be the best person you are, whether it's people in the stands, players or coaches. They're all connected, which is a good thing."

Plus, he said one of the best things about Alabama football also resides in Austin. "Really, I loved Bama's playbook," Hall said. "And it's Sark's playbook. So, I gotta stick with my boy Sark. What I was doing at Bama that wasn't seen is going to be seen this year." Hall never really found his stride in Tuscaloosa. Last month, Alabama coach Nick Saban announced that Hall had been suspended for violating "some team rules. Whether they're academic or whatever, it doesn't really matter." That came after it was revealed his name was no longer on the roster. Hall tweeted he that it was news to him. Still, a day after Saban's announcement, Hall entered the NCAA transfer portal. - Birmingham News

  Poised for a 2022 standout season: Quarterback will drive the narrative for the Longhorns, but junior running back Bijan Robinson will drive the offense. He was one of the top backs in the country in 2021 before his season was cut short by a dislocated elbow in a loss to Kansas. Robinson had 1,422 yards from scrimmage and 16 TDs last season and will likely be mentioned in some early Heisman Trophy conversations. He's also bulked up to 220 pounds heading into what will likely be his final college season. Robinson will run behind a young and inexperienced offensive line. - AP College Football

  Former Alabama football receiver Agiye Hall announced he is transferring to Texas. He put out the news Tuesday on his Twitter account. Hall is the second player this offseason to reunite former Crimson Tide offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian, how head coach of the Longhorns. Hall joins tight end Jahleel Billingsley, who also transferred to Texas. Former Alabama linebacker Ben Davis transferred to Texas last offseason. Hall posted photos of himself in Texas gear along with the caption, "it's an new sheriff in town #hookem." A graphic said Hall is "committed." The fifth-ranked receiver in the class of 2021 as a four-star recruit per, Hall announced his intentions to enter the NCAA transfer portal on April 7 following reports of his name being removed from the official Alabama football roster two days prior. On April 6, Alabama coach Nick Saban addressed Hall's situation. "He is suspended from the team for violations of some team rules, whether they're academic or whatever, it doesn't really matter," Saban said. "Everybody has a responsibility and an obligation to respect the principles and values and do what they need to do. They're all there to help them be more successful. To respect those and do those is always really helpful." - Montgomery Advertiser

  04/21/22 - Hudson CardrSo/2025, Texas, 6-2, 200 (DS#9 QB) + More +

  Texas quarterback Hudson Card hopes he's the Longhorns' once and future starter. He beat out Casey Thompson last August but ceded the job in September. Now he's battling Ohio State transfer Quinn Ewers for the starting spot. You can count Hudson Card among those who have liked what they've seen from Quinn Ewers. It should be noted that Card isn't a fan or member of the media. He is a third-year quarterback who isn't about to sell himself short. Both Card and Ewers, a touted transfer from Ohio State, are competing to be the Longhorns' starter. "He can make all the throws, and I believe I can too," Card told reporters last week.

This is the second straight offseason in which Card has competed to be Texas' starting quarterback. As a redshirt freshman, he beat out Casey Thompson last August and started the season opener. But he was unable to hold onto the job. Thompson struggled at times as well. In the end, Thompson started 10 games. Card was a two-time starter who also received significant playing time at Iowa State and West Virginia. The Longhorns went 5-7. Toward the end of the season, head coach Steve Sarkisian said, "We have to open that (starting quarterback) job up...We're going to tear this thing all the way down, and we're going to start back at square one come winter conditioning and then into spring ball." - Austin American Statesman

  Former Alabama receiver Agiye Hall "loved" his official visit to Texas over the weekend, his father told 247 Sports. In fact, Vincent Hall said the Longhorns should've been the destination from the start. "I just wish COVID never happened, so we could've went there in the beginning," Vincent Hall said. "It may have turned out different in my eyes." There are familiar faces in Austin, too. Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian, assistant coach Jeff Banks and former Alabama receiver Jahleel Billingsley all crossed paths with Hall in Tuscaloosa. "On the field I think he'd fit in well," Vincent Hall said. "A lot of the players they all have the same personalities, outgoing just being teenagers enjoying themselves and being able to experience things outside of football. That's something he definitely enjoyed, being there with the players." According to the report, the receiver does not have any other visits planned. Earlier this month, Alabama coach Nick Saban announced Agiye Hall's suspension from the team. A day later, he entered the transfer portal. - Birmingham News

  12/14/21 - Ryan WattsJr/2024, Texas, 6-2, 210 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Ohio State football already had a shortage of experienced defensive backs, and it has one fewer after redshirt freshman Ryan Watts entered the transfer portal on Friday. Bucknuts first reported the departure, which is OSU's fourth outgoing transfer since the end of the regular season. For Watts, the big, talented defensive back faced an uncertain role heading into 2022. "I will always continue to push and challenge myself to achieve my goals, even if that means leaving a good thing," Watts wrote in a Twitter post announcing his decision. The 6-3, 205-pound Watts, who redshirted in 2020, played 49 snaps in a season-opening victory over Minnesota. He was pressed into extensive action that night by the absence of veterans Cam Brown and Sevyn Banks. - Cleveland Plain Dealer

  12/12/21 - Quinn EwersrFr/2026, Texas, 6-2, 205 (DS#1 QB) + More +

  Former five-star recruit Quinn Ewers, who skipped his senior year of high school to enroll at Ohio State in the hopes of cashing in on endorsement deals, has committed to transfer to Texas. A person familiar with Ewers' decision told The Associated Press on Sunday the quarterback had informed Texas coaches he would return to his home state and play for the school he originally committed to before his junior year at Southlake Carroll High School, outside Dallas. The person spoke on condition on anonymity because NCAA rules prohibited Texas from immediately announcing Ewers' decision. Texas coach Steve Sarkisian tweeted his "All Gas, No Brakes" slogan 10 minutes before Ewers' post. The Longhorns went 5-7 this season, their first under Sarkisian. Ewers announced Dec. 3 he was entering the transfer portal. Yahoo! Sports first reported Ewers had decided to transfer to Texas. - AP College Football

  11/26/21 - Roschon JohnsonrJr/2024, Texas, 6-1, 219 (DS#14 RB) + More +

  Junior Roschon Johnson ran for a career-best 179 yards, Cameron Dicker kicked three field goals, and Texas summoned some uncommonly strong defense to beat Kansas State 22-17 Friday afternoon. Texas (5-7, 3-6 Big 12) ended the regular season by snapping a six-game losing streak, its longest since 1956. Johnson, who arrived at Texas as a quarterback but quickly converted to running back, started in place of Bijan Robinson, who rushed for 1,127 yards this season but missed the last two games with a dislocated elbow. Johnson carried 31 times. He ran for a 9-yard touchdown in the first quarter.

Texas which has performed poorly defending the run this season, stopped star running back Deuce Vaughn on third and one at the Longhorn 17 and backup quarterback Will Howard on fourth down with 4:03 remaining. Kansas State (7-5, 4-5) played without starting quarterback Skylar Thompson, who suffered an ankle injury last week against Baylor. Howard, his replacement, ran for a 71-yard touchdown, untouched by a defender, in the second quarter. But Howard completed just nine of 13 passes for 65 yards. - Texas/AP College Football

  11/15/21 - Bijan RobinsonJr/2024, Texas, 6-0, 214 (DS#1 RB) + More +

  Star Texas running back Bijan Robinson will miss the rest of the season after dislocating his elbow in the Longhorns' loss to Kansas, coach Steve Sarkisian said Monday. Robinson's 1,127 yards rushing this season rank third in the Big 12 and made him the first Texas running back to hit the 1,000-yard mark since 2016. He also had 11 rushing touchdowns, and five more receiving. Robinson was injured in the third quarter of the 57-56 overtime loss that sent Texas to its fifth consecutive defeat, the program's longest skid since 1956. Texas (4-6, 2-5 Big 12) plays Saturday at West Virginia and at home Nov. 27 against Kansas State, and must win both to be eligible for a bowl game. Texas hasn't had a losing season or missed a bowl game since 2016. - AP College Football
