If you’re a fan of the Longhorns (like myself) the transfer portal is what you should paying attention to. There are some big time players in the portal currently that could help turn around the Texas program quickly. Texas Longhorns transfer portal players will be key in building this program back up.
Several of those players just entered the portal from north of the red river. I’m going to run through some of these players and give my opinion on why Texas should take a shot on some of these players.
Spencer Rattler – QB Oklahoma
I know what you’re thinking. Why in the world would Texas want this guy, but we need a stud QB badly. If Rattler has any interest, Texas should use every resource available to get him on the 40 acres. What better way to entice Arch Manning to Austin then making Rattler a Heisman candidate in the burnt orange.
Austin Stogner – TE Oklahoma
This list won’t only be OU players, but there will be a couple more later on. Texas hasn’t had a game changing TE in ages. However, Stogner is a game changing TE. He has already stated that if Texas comes calling he will answer the phone. I’d imagine Sark and Co have already sent out a feeler to Stogner and several other portal players.
Tashawn Manning – OL Auburn
As all of us know offensive line is Texas’ biggest need currently. Adding Manning would boost the Oline in a massive way. Texas should 100% kick the tires on Manning to see if he has any interest.
Jadon Hasselwood & Marvin Mims – WRs Oklahoma
I shouldn’t have to sell you on either of these players. Outside of Xavier Worthy, Texas needs a lot of help in the wide receiver room. These two young men would make Texas’ wide receiver room one of, if not the best wide receiver room in the country. Imagine Texas having three guys who can create separation and beat man coverage every play. That is what it would look like with Worthy, Hasselwood, and Mims on the field together. Make it happen Sark and staff!
Do I think we land all of these players? Absolutely not. However, Texas needs to bring in anyone that wants to come to Texas. We have a lot of holes on this roster that could be filled through the transfer portal. Only time will tell if Sark believes in building through the portal. I believe and hope he does.
