Looking at Texas’ transfer portal reload for the 2024 season

Alabama transfer Isaiah Bond is now a Texas Longhorns wide receiver. With that, one of the team’s biggest needs heading into the offseason is now perhaps a strength.

Bond joins Houston transfer Matthew Golden as presumed starting wide receivers alongside rising star Johntay Cook. The three pose a formidable trio, but the position wasn’t supposed to be this strong.

After the 2023 football season, Texas lost its top three wide receivers and a dynamic tight end. With them went the majority of receiver production for the past season. Many questioned where the Longhorns would find reliable play at the position. Through the transfer portal the team has built what could be one of the better receiving groups in the SEC.

The Longhorns have added impact players at positions other than wide receiver. We could see them add more over the next month. Here is a look at the players Texas has added this offseason.
