Pair of Texas WRs Enter the Transfer Portal

Two more Longhorns entered the portal Friday, making that five total Texas players electing to transfer this week

Texas Longhorns wide receivers Kelvontay Dixon and Dajon Harrison have entered the transfer portal, according to multiple reports Friday.

The Longhorns have now had five total players elect to enter the portal this week. Defensive lineman Jordan Thomas, linebacker/running back Jaden Hullaby, and defensive lineman Myron Warren all announced their intent to transfer.

The highlight of his Texas career came in the 2020 Alamo Bowl against Colorado. Dixon had a 73-yard catch-and-run for a touchdown on a pass from former Longhorn QB Casey Thompson. It was the longest reception by a UT freshman all-time in a bowl game and the fifth-longest reception in Longhorns bowl history. 

Harrison, a native of Hutto, Texas where he was a two-time all-district honoree on both offense and defense, never saw much action during his time on the Forty Acres.

Top Longhorns WR Target Johntay Cook II Commits To Texas

The dominos from to Arch Manning's Longhorns commitment continue to fall, and this time its a big one.

After redshirting his freshman season, Harrison appeared in the Red River Showdown against Oklahoma last season. It was the only on-field appearance for Harrison in his Texas career. He did not record a touch against the Sooners.

Now with the departure of Harrison and Dixon, the Longhorns have lost some depth at receiver, though there’s more help on the way. Alabama transfer receiver Agiye Hall announced his commitment to Texas on April 19 and should provide some solid talent behind receivers Xavier Worthy, Whittington, Isaiah Neyor, and Marcus Washington.
