Breaking News: Another Top Talented Texas Longhorns Star Confirm To Enters The NCAA Transfer Portal

Texas G Chris Johnson is the third Longhorn to leave during the current transfer window. Johnson logs into the NCAA transfer portal.

Chris Johnson, a rookie guard for the Texas Longhorns, will use the NCAA transfer portal, according to several reports on Tuesday, including one from Joe Tipton of On3.

The information was confirmed to 247Sports immediately by Johnson’s agent.

Johnson signed up for the portal on Tuesday night.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Johnson, a 6’5 180-pound player from Missouri City, was a consensus four-star prospect who was rated as the No. 53 player in the country and the No. 11 combo guard. He had committed to Kansas in August 2022 but later signed with the Jayhawks before declaring his decommitment in June.

Johnson posted a statement on Twitter saying, “Over the past few weeks, I’ve struggled internally with my initial decision and reached a point where I wasn’t completely comfortable.” “I firmly believe it’s the right decision for all parties, but I am very aware that the timing of this decision is difficult, both for myself and Kansas.”


Less than three weeks later, guard AJ Johnson and forward Ron Holland—both considered five-star prospects—decided to play professionally rather than play for the Longhorns, leaving a void that Johnson filled when he signed an athletic scholarship agreement with Texas as a late addition to the 2023 recruiting class.

In the end, Johnson made only 17 appearances for Texas in 2023–24, averaging 4.5 minutes per game. He scored 18 points overall on 8–19 shooting, including 2–7 from outside the arc. Johnson missed the season opener against Incarnate Word due to an ankle injury he suffered in an exhibition game against St. Edward’s. However, he returned for the victory over Delaware State, when he played a season-high 15 minutes and scored a season-high five points. Johnson, on the other hand, played in just 12 minutes in seven conference games, scoring two points and dishing out two assists.

Since its launch last month, Texas’ transfer portal has been accessed by redshirt sophomore guard Gavin Perryman and sophomore forward Alex Anamekwe.
