With the spring NCAA Transfer Portal activity in full swing, Texas basketball has a few targets remaining that have already visited Austin in the last couple of weeks. Texas and head coach Rodney Terry have already landed three portal commitments this spring.

All three transfers for the Longhorns came within a span of a few hours of each other on April 14. Texas landed former Indiana State Sycamores redshirt junior forward Jayson Kent, Arkansas Razorbacks redshirt junior guard Tramon Mark, and Indiana State redshirt junior guard Julian Larry after a big visit weekend roughly eight days ago.

Texas has continued to host key targets from the transfer portal since that big day in the portal for Terry and staff a couple of weekends ago. The most recent portal visitor for the Longhorns was last weekend during the spring football game at DKR on April 20.

Here's a look at three portal targets on commitment watch for the Longhorns this week.

Rytis Petraitis, F

Last week, Texas hosted former Air Force Falcons sophomore transfer forward Rytis Petraitis on a visit to Austin. Petraitis was actually the first portal target that the Longhorns scheduled a visit with during the spring transfer window.

Petraitis is a quality scorer and rebounder who brings good length at 6-foot-7 and 210 pounds. He was one of the top scoring forwards in the Mountain West last season, averaging over 15 points per game for Air Force. He's also averaged over a half dozen rebounds per game in his two seasons with the Falcons.

Texas needs to replace the depth in the forward rotation lost by all the departures due to exhausted eligibility and the transfer portal this offseason. Petraitis could give the Longhorns a quality forward who could play at the three or the four.
