Texas TE Jared Wiley enters the NCAA transfer portal

·1 min read

Texas tight end Jared Wiley entered the NCAA transfer portal on Friday.

The 6-foot-7 playmaker will have one year of eligibility remaining at his new school. With starting tight end Cade Brewer pursuing a professional career, along with Wiley entering the transfer portal, Texas will be without their top two tight ends next season.

The Longhorns will likely look to Ja’Tavion Sanders, Gunnar Helm and Juan Davis to compete for a starting role.

Through Wiley’s three seasons in Austin, he compiled 19 receptions for 248 yards and three touchdowns. He averaged 13.1 yards per reception and was often a mismatch for opposing defenses, although he was sparingly used under both Tom Herman and Steve Sarkisian.

Wiley was a former three-star prospect and the No. 31 tight end in the 2019 recruiting class.

Sarkisian’s staff expected quite a bit of attrition this offseason in order to revamp the roster to bring in over 30 new players.
