In just a couple of weeks, Texas football will surely be one of many college football teams caught in the whirlwind that is the movement in the NCAA Transfer Portal. Many blue-chip talents around the Power Five have already announced their intentions to enter the transfer portal heading into next offseason.

Graduate transfers are also allowed to enter the transfer portal at any time.

One of the early transfer entrants as part of the 2024 portal class that the Longhorns have reportedly made contact with this fall is the former Texas A&M Aggies true freshman wide receiver Raymond Cottrell. On3’s Hayes Fawcett reported on Nov. 20 that Texas is one of the nearly two dozen schools that have contacted Cottrell.

Cottrell initially entered the portal after the news of Texas A&M firing head coach Jimbo Fisher a couple of weekends ago.

He’s also reportedly communicated with the Florida Gators, Oklahoma Sooners, Auburn Tigers, Ole Miss Rebels, Miami Hurricanes, Tennessee Volunteers, Colorado Buffaloes, Texas Tech Red Raiders, and Penn State Nittany Lions, among many other schools since he entered the portal last week.

Cottrell enters the transfer portal with all four years of eligibility remaining.

He is still eligible to take a redshirt year as he only took live-game snaps in two contests for the Aggies this season, most recently in Week 3 against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks. Cottrell caught one pass for 13 yards over the two games he played this season.

Cottrell signed with Texas A&M as a four-star recruit in the 2023 class out of Milton High School in Florida. He had offers from Georgia, Tennessee, Miami, Texas A&M, and Alabama, among a few other Power Five schools during his recruitment.

Cottrell currently ranks as the No. 1 transfer in the 2024 portal class in the 247Sports College Football Transfer Portal rankings.
