Texas football saw its second wide receiver enter the NCAA Transfer Portal in the last 24 hours on Dec. 8 redshirt junior Isaiah Neyor. On3’s Hayes Fawcett reported late in the morning of Dec. 8 that Neyor plans to enter the transfer portal.
The other Texas wideout who entered the transfer portal in the last 24 hours is redshirt junior boundary receiver Casey Cain.
Neyor spent the last two seasons in Austin after transferring to Texas from the Wyoming Cowboys during the 2022 offseason.
Texas football loses its second boundary receiver to the portal late this week in Isaiah Neyor
He entered the 2022 season as a potential breakout candidate at boundary receiver for the Longhorns before suffering an unfortunate season-ending knee injury in preseason camp. Neyor hasn’t played much at Texas in the last two seasons due to the knee injury he suffered last fall.
Neyor only played one game for the Longhorns since 2022. He was targeted twice, resulting in one catch for 14 receiving yards, in Texas’s season-opening win on Sep. 2 over the Rice Owls.
Neyor has two years of eligibility remaining.
Texas could lose multiple top boundary receivers on the roster in 2024
With the Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year, junior wide receiver Adonai Mitchell, expected to enter the NFL Draft next spring, Texas could lose its three most experienced boundary receivers during the offseason.
Boundary receiver was already expected to be a position the Longhorns looked to the portal to add depth and an immediate impact starter in 2024. With Neyor and Cain now expected to enter the transfer portal, boundary receiver has multiple spots for the Longhorns to fill from the portal and high school recruiting in the 2024 class.
Neyor is the seventh Texas player to enter the portal this week
In the first week of the December portal window for underclassmen, Texas has lost seven players to transfer. But the only player the Longhorns lost to the portal this week who has any starts under his belt this season is senior safety Jalen Catalon.
