The NCAA Transfer Portal is ripe with cornerback talent, and the Texas football program could add depth pretty easily is they focus here.
In our next segment of the NCAA Transfer Portal Big Board for the Texas football program in the 2020 offseason, the cornerback position takes center stage. Texas seems to have a plethora of raw talent at the cornerback spot, but there’s not many proven commodities that have a set of production that’s longer than part of one season to go off of.
Last season, Texas got a good run down the stretch from sophomore former four-star athlete recruit D’shawn Jamison. When healthy, then fellow sophomore cornerback Jalen Green was solid too. But there were other downsides to the group of corners that Texas placed out on the field last year. Anthony Cook will be switching positions heading into his junior season, and redshirt junior Kobe Boyce looks to be moving pretty far down the depth chart.
Other pieces to watch at corner for Texas this year includes sophomore Kenyatta Watson II and to-be senior former converted safety Josh Thompson. Cook essentially took the place of Thompson at nickelback. Since Cook is a more physical cornerback, but had problems with angels and positioning in the last two years, Texas could find more success with this approach.
Texas also lost another corner to the transfer portal already this offseason. The brother of former senior wide receiver Devin Duvernay, redshirt senior cornerback Donovan Duvernay, put his name in the transfer portal around two months ago.
Here’s a look into the NCAA Transfer Portal Big Board at cornerback for the Texas Longhorns football program during the 2020 offseason.
