Predicting Texas's next transfer after Austin Jordan

Texas has lost two upperclassmen at defensive back to the portal in as many days this week.

The receiving corps is one of the few broad position groups on the Texas roster on each side of the ball that hasn't been impacted by attrition during the spring transfer window.

Texas currently has six scholarship tight ends on the roster post-spring ball and 10 scholarship wide receivers. If any attrition does his the tight end of wide receiver room for the Longhorns in the coming days and/or weeks late this spring, the returning players who haven't secured spots on the two-deep depth chart could be candidates to enter the transfer portal.

I just don't see any new additions to the program via portal or high school recruiting in the 2024 class or returning starters deciding to transfer this early.

The one Texas tight end that was close to entering the transfer portal before spring ball began in mid-March was senior Juan Davis. One of only two returning tight ends with live-game experience for the Longhorns this year, Davis had a good spring after the staff convinced him to stay at Texas a couple of months ago.

Texas's other returning tight end with live-game experience this spring is senior Gunnar Helm. Former Alabama junior transfer Amari Niblack and Helm are the two projected starters for Jeff Banks and the Longhorns at the tight end position this upcoming season.

Banks and the Longhorns also have a talented true freshman who showed out during the spring in early enrollee tight end Jordan Washington.

Between the young depth developing in the tight end room and the competition he could face to get on the field this upcoming season, Davis is probably the odd man out if Texas loses anyone at the position this spring.
