The transfer departure from the Texas football program that grabbed the most headlines during the spring portal window was junior cornerback Terrance Brooks. The third-year corner Brooks was the only Texas player with double-digit starts last season who entered the portal this offseason.

Brooks started 16 games and appeared in 23 in two years at Texas. He registered 29 combined tackles, three interceptions, nine pass breakups, and six defensive stops since 2022.

No Texas cornerback played more defensive snaps over the last two seasons than Brooks (775).

As a former high-four-star recruit with multiple years of eligibility remaining, Brooks is one of the most highly-sought after cornerbacks in the portal late this spring. That's not to mention that he has multiple years of starting experience at a big Power Five program at Texas.

Since Brooks entered the transfer portal on April 23, he's been contacted by well over two dozen FBS schools. The No. 11 transfer cornerback in the 247Sports Composite should have his fair share of options available for his next landing spot out of the portal entering next season.

Here are three possible transfer destinations for Brooks this offseason.


Brooks told On3's Hayes Fawcett that the Oregon Ducks are one of the 27 schools that contacted him in the portal. Oregon has been aggressive all offseason, recruiting impact players from the transfer portal.

To replace 20 outgoing transfers and multiple departing starters on both sides of the ball, head coach Dan Lanning and the Ducks have added 14 portal players this offseason.

Oregon is still looking to add depth and another proven corner to the secondary late this spring. The Ducks have already added former Washington Huskies senior corner Jabbar Muhammad and former Louisville Cardinals senior Kam Alexander from the portal.

Oregon would give Brooks a place to compete for a Power Five conference title and a spot in the 12-team College Football Playoff immediately in 2024.
