The other portal target for the Longhorns who visited Austin in the last week is former Oklahoma State Cowboys standout true freshman center Brandon Garrison.

Terry and staff's top big man priority in the portal at this point of the offseason, Garrison has visited a handful of schools since he announced his intentions to transfer a few weeks ago. Garrison has taken visits to see Texas and the Oklahoma Sooners since the dead period lifted in mid-April.

Texas and the Oklahoma schools are all heavily involved in this portal recruitment. Oklahoma State and new head coach Steve Lutz have made a push to get Garrison back to Stillwater for another year after he transferred out of the program just a couple of weeks ago.

He left Oklahoma State after the firing of seventh-year head coach Mike Boynton last month.

Two other SEC schools making a late push in this portal recruitment for Garrison are Arkansas and the Kentucky Wildcats. On3 reported on April 19 that Kentucky is expected to host Garrison for a visit to Lexington as soon as this coming weekend.

There is also some chatter that Garrison could make a visit to Fayetteville to see Arkansas in the next seven or 10 days.

Garrison's portal recruitment is about as hard to get a read on as any that Texas is involved in this spring. Texas is still definitely prioritizing him in the portal, but the number of schools he's considering has only expanded it seems since his visit to Austin during the spring football game last weekend wrapped up on April 20 and 21.
