Courtney Ramey, G

Guard Courtney Ramey was a staple of Texas's starting backcourt for four years late in Smart's tenure, and for one year under Chris Beard in 2021-22. Ramey and Matt Coleman manned Texas's starting backcourt for three years.

After Beard signed guard Tyrese Hunter from the transfer portal a couple of years ago, Ramey entered the transfer portal. Ramey filled a need for the Arizona Wildcats as an experienced starting guard, helping head coach Tommy Lloyd's team to an impressive 28-win season and a Pac-12 Tournament crown in 2023.

Ramey spent last season playing overseas with Nevezis Kedainiai in Lithuania.

Devin Askew, G

This offseason, senior guard Devin Askew transferred to the fourth school in five years in his collegiate career. Askew is set to play the final year of his collegiate career at Long Beach State after spending the last two seasons with the Cal Golden Bears.

Askew started his collegiate career playing one season under head coach John Calipari with the Kentucky Wildcats. He joined Beard and the Longhorns via the transfer portal as a reserve guard during the 2021-22 season, averaging 2.1 points per game, 0.9 rebounds, and 1.3 assists over 34 games.

Tre Mitchell, C

Big man Tre Mitchell had a tumultuous collegiate career that saw him play for three major conference teams in his last three seasons of eligibility. He started his college career at UMass, emerging as one of the best mid-major big men in college hoops. Mitchell won A-10 Newcomer of the Year honors and 2020-21 All A-10 First-Team honors while averaging over 18 points per game in his first two seasons.

Mitchell was one of Beard and staff's premier portal signings in the 2021 transfer cycle. He was supposed to be one of the highlighting frontcourt starters in a team that Texas rebuilt via the portal entering the 2021-22 season.

Personal issues caused Mitchell to miss a significant stretch of Big 12 play for the Longhorns in 2022.

Following the 2021-22 season, Mitchell landed with Texas's Big 12 foe West Virginia after he entered the portal for the second time in as many years. Mitchell was part of West Virginia's portal exodus amid coaching turnover in Morgantown last offseason. He played his final season at Kentucky in 2023-24.

Jaylon Tyson, F

Since transferring from Texas in 2022, forward Jaylon Tyson has emerged as a consistent contributor and high-end scoring wing in the major conferences. Tyson transferred to Texas Tech for the 2022-23 season, where he emerged as a consistent two-way wing for the Red Raiders.

Tyson transferred to his third school in as many years where he broke out as Cal's leading scorer during the 2023-24 campaign. He earned All-Pac-12 First-Team honors after averaging a career-high 19.6 points per game and 6.8 rebounds.
