Texas LB Marcus Tillman Jr. Officially Enters NCAA Transfer Portal

The Longhorns now have nine players from the 2019 recruiting class that have transferred or are in the process of transferring

Texas Longhorns sophomore linebacker Marcus Tillman Jr. has entered the NCAA transfer portal, according to muxa. 

Tillman Jr., a member of the Longhorns' 2019 recruiting class, never saw a true breakout opportunity during his time in Austin. The Orlando native only played in six games, recording four total tackles, three solo tackles, and one sack.

He did not see the field during the 2021 season. 

According to ESPN's 2019 recruiting rankings, Tillman was the 19th-ranked at his position for the 2019 class. He wa a part of the recruiting class that includes names like Roschon Johnson, Jordan Whittington, Marcus Washington, T'Vondre Sweat, Jared Wiley, and Jacoby Jones. 

Tillman's inevitable transfer now makes him the ninth Longhorn from the 2019 class to enter into the transfer portal. He joins the likes of Jake Smith (USC), Bru McCoy (USC), Tyler Owens (Texas Tech), Kenyatta Watson (Georgia Tech), Caleb Johnson (UCLA), Kennedy Lewis (UTSA), Willie Tyler (undecided), and Juwan Mitchell (Tennessee).
