Texas post-Early Signing Day roster matrix

The early signing period is hours away from closing and the Texas Longhorns have the vast majority of the 2023 class signed following Thursday’s signing of consensus four-star wide receiver DeAndre Moore Jr.

So it’s worth taking another look at the current roster matrix for the 2023 season with 23 members of the 2023 class signed, two transfers added to the mix, and 12 players who have entered the NCAA transfer portal or intend to do so.

  • Texas is close to completing the 2023 class — the only remaining targets on the board are Phoenix (Ariz.) Pinnacle tight end Duce Robinson, Waco Connally nickel back Jelani McDonald, and Mableton (Ga.) Pebblebrook cornerback Tyler Scott, with McDonald the mos likely player to sign.
  • For more information on individual signees in the 2023 recruiting class, all of those posts are contained in this StoryStream.
  • Of the 12 players who have entered the NCAA transfer portal or intend to do so, five of them have found new destinations.
  • Junior running back Bijan Robinson, senior running back Roschon Johnson, and senior linebacker DeMarvion Overshown have all officially declared for the 2023 NFL Draft and opted out of the Alamo Bowl. Here’s what those opt outs mean for the Longhorns.
  • Junior wide receiver Jordan Whittington, senior defensive tackle T’Vondre Sweat, and senior linebacker Jett Bush all remain on the roster matrix with the expectation or possibility that all three will return for the 2023 season.
  • Sophomore wide receiver Agiye Hall is included on the transfer portal list following his departure from the program earlier this week.
  • With the additions of cornerback Gavin Holmes and punter Ryan Sanborn from the portal, Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian said on Wednesday that there are three to four more spots to take more players from the portal as the scholarship roster currently stands at 84. Former Syracuse safety Ja’Had Carter visited before the dead period, but Texas doesn’t otherwise have any clear targets in the portal and some of the late 2023 additions like wide receiver DeAndre Moore Jr. and edge Tausili Akana have reduced the need for portal additions at those positions. If junior linebacker Jaylan Ford declares for the draft, that would significantly increase the urgency to find a potential starter at that position.
