Texas has been extremely active in the transfer portal this offseason and continued that trend on Monday as the Longhorns have added former Iowa State wideout Tarique Milton to their roster.
Milton announced his decision to join Steve Sarkisian’s squad via Twitter on Monday, after being in the transfer portal for six months.
“I’d like to thank all of the college programs and coaches who have reached out to me during my time in the portal,” Milton said. “I’ve discussed and prayed over my decision with my family, and I am excited for this next chapter.
“I’m grateful and honored to continue my graduate studies, and finish my college football career at the University of Texas. Thank you to Coach Sarkisian, Coach Banks, and Coach Marion for believing in my ability, talent, and character.
“To the Longhorns administration, students, alumni, and fans… HOOK ‘EM!”
After spending five seasons with the Cyclones, Milton has just one season of eligibility remaining thanks to the COVID-19 eligibility rule.
After redshirting, Milton played 40 games over four seasons with Iowa State, recording 1,519 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on 99 receptions.
Adding Milton to its wide receiver room gives Texas an embarrassment of riches at the position, with Xavier Worthy and Jordan Whittington returning, as well as adding transfers Isaiah Neyor (Wyoming) and Agiye Hall (Alabama) this offseason.
