Texas basketball and head coach Rodney Terry landed their fifth portal commitment of this transfer cycle on April 29. Former Vanderbilt Commodores freshman transfer wing Malik Presley committed to Texas a couple of weeks after entering the portal (on April 17).

Presley joins former Arkansas redshirt junior guard Tramon Mark, Oregon State sophomore guard Jordan Pope, Indiana State redshirt junior forward Jayson Kent, and Indiana State redshirt junior guard Julian Larry among Texas's five portal commits in the spring portal window.

Adding Presley brings Terry and the Longhorns staff up to 11 scholarship players on the projected roster for the 2024-25 season. Here's a look at the scholarship players on Texas's projected roster for the 2024-25 campaign as it stands now on April 29.

G-Jordan Pope, Junior

G-Julian Larry, Senior

G-Chendall Weaver, Junior

G-Tramon Mark, Senior

W-Tre Johnson, Freshman

W-Malik Presley, Sophomore

F-Devon Pryor, RS Freshman

F-Jayson Kent, Senior

F-Nic Codie, Freshman

PF-Ze'Rik Onyema, Senior

C-Kadin Shedrick, Senior

The clear-cut biggest positional need the Longhorns must attack with the spring portal window closing on May 1 is adding another big man. Texas needs a lengthy big man who can play in the low post on offense and add rim protection on the defensive end.

Here's a prediction of the next transfer to commit to the Longhorns this spring after Presley on April 29.

Terrance Williams, PF

One of the recent transfer forwards Texas has been in communication with is former Michigan Wolverines senior Terrance Williams II. The 6-foot-7 and 240-pound forward from Clinton, MD, has already visited new head coach Eric Musselman and the USC Trojans since he entered the transfer portal a few weeks ago.

Williams has also been in communication with other schools like the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Oklahoma State Cowboys in the last couple of weeks.

It remains unclear how much Texas is prioritizing Williams late in the spring transfer cycle. But the Longhorns do need to add length and proven experience in the frontcourt rotation.

Williams played most of his minutes at Michigan last season at the four. He averaged a career-high 12.4 points per game, 4.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.4 blocks while shooting 43 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range, and 76 percent from the free-throw line.
