Official Longhorns News: Texas Longhorns Confirm Major Set Backs With Departure Of Another Top Talented Football Star

Former Texas RB Savion Red Transfers to Nevada


Savion Red, a versatile running back from Grand Prairie, Texas, has transferred from Texas to the Nevada Wolfpack. This move was confirmed by Inside Texas’ Joe Cook on June 20. Red joins Nevada under new head coach Jeff Choate, who left his position as Texas’ co-defensive coordinator and linebackers coach earlier this offseason.

Red is part of a group of former Texas players who have moved to Nevada, including senior safety Kitan Crawford and former walk-on running back Ky Woods. He has two years of eligibility remaining.

After entering the transfer portal following Texas’ spring football, Red made the decision to transfer. Originally training as a wide receiver in his first year at Texas, Red switched to running back to utilize his versatility and to add depth to the position for the 2023 season.


During his time at Texas, Red played in 21 games over two seasons, contributing on both offense and special teams. Last season, he recorded 131 rushing yards and one touchdown on 30 carries, often used in short-yardage and goal-line situations in the “Redcat formation.”

In his true freshman year in 2022, Red saw most of his action late in games, registering six catches for 34 yards. He also participated in special teams, returning kicks and contributing as a blocker and on coverage units.

Red was a late addition to the Texas 2022 recruiting class, flipping from SMU to Texas just weeks before signing day. As a three-star recruit from Grand Prairie High School in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, his move to Nevada marks a new chapter in his college football career.
