Texas LB Marcus Tillman enters the transfer portal

·1 min read

The attrition continues for Steve Sarkisian and Texas as linebacker Marcus Tillman has entered his name into the transfer portal.

Tillman is a former three-star recruit from the class of 2019. The Florida product had just four tackles and one sack in the six games he played in as a Longhorn.

An MCL injury in his freshman season really set Tillman back. The linebacker made an appearance in his first four collegiate games but never really got back to the field post-injury.

Texas needs depth at the linebacker position in a major way. DeMarvion Overshown is still up in the air if he wants to turn pro or not. Jaylan Ford came along strong at the end of the year but the group massively underperformed as a whole.

UNLV transfer Jacoby Windmon has the potential to be an immediate impact starter if the Horns can land him.
