The news cycle for Texas football in the NCAA Transfer Portal has picked up again. Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian were active but diligent in the transfer portal during the December window.

Sarkisian and the Longhorns added three portal commitments during the December window. Texas added the former Houston Cougars sophomore wide receiver Matthew Golden, Clemson Tigers junior safety Andrew Mukuba, and UTSA Roadrunners redshirt sophomore edge rusher Trey Moore.

Texas's staff did a nice job of addressing various positional needs in the portal with immediate impact starters.

That continues to be the theme the Longhorns are focusing on with their transfer portal recruiting efforts early in the 2024 offseason. The three primary positional needs the Longhorns are still looking to address in the portal in early January are wide receiver, defensive line, and defensive back.

Wide receiver and defensive tackle are the two primary positional needs the Longhorns are looking at in the portal.

Concerning portal recruiting at the two most important positions of need, though, the Longhorns have two visitors slated for this weekend. Here's a look at those two portal visitors for the Longhorns at defensive tackle and wideout, respectively.
