The most likely portal commitment for the Longhorns after getting Niblack on Jan. 18 among the three transfers listed here is the former Washington Huskies and Oklahoma State Cowboys senior cornerback Jabbar Muhammad.

Texas hosted the two-time transfer cornerback from the national runner-up Washington for a multi-day official visit to Austin on Jan. 17 and 18. The early returns from Muhammad's two-day visit to Texas this week have been positive.

Muhammad told Mike Roach of 247Sports on Jan. 18 that his trip to Texas "was a really good visit". He gave the entire experience during his Texas visit a good review, from the facilities to the feeling he got on campus in Austin.

Next up in this portal recruitment is a visit to Tuscaloosa for Muhammad to see his former head coach at Washington, Kalen DeBoer, and the Crimson Tide on Jan. 19. He is also scheduled to visit Eugene on Jan. 26 to see head coach Dan Lanning and the Oregon Ducks.

At the moment, it looks like an Oregon-Texas battle in the race to land Muhammad's commitment in the portal with Alabama in third place. Texas made a good impression on Muhammad during his visit to Austin in the last couple of days. The Longhorns also have the family connection as Jabbar's cousin, rising sophomore cornerback Malik Muhammad, plays for Texas.
