Two Texas Wide Receivers Enter NCAA Transfer Portal

NCAA Football: Texas at West Virginia

With just two days remaining until the transfer portal deadline (May 1), the Texas Longhorns appear to be losing a pair of wide receivers after the spring portion of the schedule.

Both Dajon Harrison and Kelvontay Dixon have decided it to be in their best interest to explore options other than Texas ahead of the 2022 football season.


Harrison, a former three-star wideout in the Class of 2020, appeared in only one game for the Longhorns over the past two seasons. He did not record any receptions in his time with UT and chose the Longhorns over TCU, Arizona State, Iowa State, and Kansas State out of high school.

Dixon’s loss hurts a bit more as a four-star recruit in the 2020 class, appearing in 15 games over the past two seasons. He recorded 12 receptions, 176 yards, and one touchdown in that time, but the additions of Isaiah Neyor and Agiye Hall apparently made the receiver room a bit more crowded than Dixon was comfortable with. Dixon chose UT over Houston and Arkansas out of high school and will certainly have interest in the portal from several schools.

Texas still has significant depth with Xavier Worthy, Jordan Whittington, plus Neyor and Hall transferring in.
