The lone high school signee of Chris Beard’s first class as the head coach of Texas has decided to enter his name into the transfer portal.

Jaylon Tyson, the former four-star forward out of Plano, Texas, decided to enter his name into the transfer portal on Monday according to reports by Horns247.

The freshman had a hard time cracking the lineup that is loaded with experienced transfers, as he has played in a team low eight games, and only played about seven minutes per game. His low volume of minutes and opportunities led to him averaging just 1.8 points and 1.1 rebounds per game.

At one point in the offseason, Beard expressed a belief that Tyson would be able to be an immediate contributor, but the freshman was never really apart of the rotation, and the emergence of Dylan Disu who was recovering from an injury for the first eight games had only bumped him further out of the rotation.

Before committing to Texas, Tyson had received interest from schools such as Oklahoma, TCU, Xavier, and Houston.
