Latest Longhorns News: Just In Texas Longhorns Confirm To Loose Another Top Star To Transfer Portal

CB Terrance Brooks leaves Texas due to the transfer portal
Terrance Brooks, a junior cornerback, becomes Texas’ fifth player lost to the transfer portal in the last week.

Terrance Brooks, a junior cornerback for Texas football, posted on social media on April 23 announcing his intention to use the NCAA Transfer Portal. This summer, Brooks is the first returning starter from Texas (for at least ten games) to access the transfer site.

Terrance Brooks, a starting wide receiver for Texas football, sent a message on his X account on April 23, declaring his intention to use the transfer portal.

“For everything, I am grateful to God, my family, and the Longhorn Nation. I’m going to log into the transfer portal right now.”

Brooks played in 23 games over his two seasons at Texas, starting 16 of them. Since joining the Longhorns in 2022, Brooks has tallied 29 combined tackles, three interceptions, nine pass breakups, and six defensive stops.


In 2022, Brooks was a true freshman and started a few games. However, the previous fall, he was a full-time starter at field corner. In 2023, he started 13 of the 14 games he played at field corner for Texas’s secondary, making his first appearance as an Honorable Mention All-Big 12 selection.

Last season, Brooks had the most defensive snaps (598), out of all the cornerbacks in Texas. Brooks has the fourth-highest rating of any eligible cornerback for the Longhorns in 2023.

Prior to Brooks’ April 23 announcement of his plan to transfer, Texas had done a good job this offseason of minimizing the expensive losses to the portal. The lone player on the Longhorns roster that started more than ten games the previous season but lost to the portal is Brooks, as of this stage in the spring.

A few days after spring camp ended, the Longhorns had five true scholarship cornerbacks and fifteen scholarship defensive backs on the roster after losing Brooks to the portal.

Malik Muhammad, a sophomore cornerback, and Gavin Holmes, a senior, are back from the team from last year, according to Texas and cornerbacks coach Terry Joseph. Among the scholarship corners this spring, the Longhorns have three true freshman early enrollees: Kobe Black, Santana Wilson, and Wardell Mack.

To improve defensive backs’ versatility and depth in the secondary, Texas coaches place a strong emphasis on their capacity for cross-training. Senior defensive back Jahdae Barron, junior defensive back Jaylon Guilbeau, and junior defensive back Austin Jordan have all previously cross-trained at cornerback for Texas.
