NIL and the transfer portal have the college football world in a frenzy. Texas has been right in the center of all the craziness this week.

According to a report by Chris Hummer of 247Sports, Texas superstar wideout Xavier Worthy received a “significant six-figure offer” from an unnamed Power Five program to transfer from Texas.

The Longhorns managed to hold off the reported offer and keep the Freshman All-American in Austin. Worthy shut down the rumors with a tweet of himself and Steve Sarkisian.

Losing a talent like Worthy would be killer for Steve Sarkisian’s offense. He snagged 62 passes for 12 touchdowns and nearly 1000 yards a season ago.

Situations like this will pop up more and more around the sport. Pittsburgh’s 2021 Biletnikoff winner, Jordan Addison, is considering entering the portal with USC as a possible landing spot. Hummer even mentioned Texas defensive back Jahdae Barron is being approached with an offer to transfer schools as well.
