Among the most impactful additions for Sark and the Longhorns staff out of the NCAA Transfer Portal this offseason is the former Wyoming Cowboys breakout redshirt freshman wide receiver Isaiah Neyor. Texas was able to flip a commitment out of the portal from the Tennessee Volunteers early on this offseason, allowing Neyor the chance to arrive in Austin to participate in spring ball.

And Neyor has done nothing but impress this coaching staff and the fan base as a whole since arriving on campus a few months ago. Neyor made a great impression on this staff right away, namely on Sark and new wide receivers coach/passing game coordinator Brennan Marion.

Neyor has impressed to the degree that he was essentially projected right away to be the starting wideout on the outside for the Longhorns in Week 1 this fall. That didn’t happen for no reason.

The physical tools and gritty attitude that Neyor put on display with the Longhorns right away has earned him a ton of respect from his teammates and the coaches alike. All we hear about Neyor this summer is how hard he is working to get better ahead of the 2022 season. He definitely sounds like one of the hardest workers on the team during summer workouts.

It’s also good to hear that Neyor is forming a really good connection in the passing game with the former Ohio State Buckeyes freshman transfer quarterback Quinn Ewers this offseason. If Ewers does win the starting quarterback job over junior Hudson Card in fall camp, then this quarterback-wide receiver connection with Neyor could blossom into one of the best in the Big 12.
