Breaking News: Another Texas Top Star Enters The NCAA Transfer Portal

Texas border J’Mond Tapp logs onto the NCAA transfer website.
Over the course of two seasons with the Longhorns, the Louisiana product made nine tackles.

Multiple reports state that on Wednesday, Texas Longhorns redshirt sophomore edge J’Mond Tapp entered the NCAA transfer portal.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Tapp, a consensus four-star talent out of Donaldsonville, Louisiana’s Ascension Catholic, was ranked as the No. 107 prospect nationwide and the No. 11 edge in the 2022 recruiting class.

In August 2021, Tapp chose Texas over nearly 20 other offers, including those from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Texas A&M, and USC, just over two months after making an official visit to Austin.

Before recording eight tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss, in seven games as a redshirt freshman and playing 98 snaps for the Longhorns, Tapp appeared in two games in 2022 and made one tackle while maintaining his redshirt. He began the season as the third-string Jack end behind Ethan Burke and Kris Ross, who left the program in October.

After redshirt freshman Billy Walton, Tapp is the second edge to access the NCAA transfer portal during the spring window. Recently, Trey Moore, a transfer, and Colin Simmons, the No. 2 edge, joined the Longhorns at the edge position, along with Zina Umeozulu.

Texas is currently at the 85-man scholarship cap for the fall with four players in the portal.
