Texas PG Rowan Brumbaugh Will Transfer: Report

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament Midwest Regional- Miami (FL) vs Texas

Texas Longhorns point guard Rowan Brumbaugh will search for a new destination. The former 247Sports Composite Top 100 player has entered the transfer portal, according to a report by Stadium’s Jeff Goodman.

Perhaps Brumbaugh’s decision has something to do with the fact Chris Beard is no longer around. Beard, who was fired from Texas back in January after domestic violence charges were filed against him for an incident that occurred with his fiancé in December before charges were eventually dropped in February, recruited Brumbaugh to Austin.

Beard has since taken the Ole Miss job, while Rodney Terry has been promoted to the Longhorns’ head coaching position.


As for Brumbaugh this just concluded season, he redshirted behind Longhorns star guards Marcus Carr and Tyrese Hunter. So, he didn’t ever take the court at Texas.

But Brumbaugh, as mentioned, was highly recruited out of high school. According to the industry-generated 247Sports Composite, he was the country’s No. 89 overall prospect, No. 16 point guard and No. 2 player in the state of Maryland, with a four-star and 0.9632 rating.

“Has positive length and strength for the point guard position,” said 247Sports Director of Basketball Scouting Jerry Meyer. “Not a leaper and an average athlete in terms of explosiveness. But has tremendous feel for the game and the ability to change pace and direction. Manipulates the defense. Shoots the ball adequately from distance to keep defense honest. Uses his strength and body control to score in midrange.

“Handles the ball extremely well and is a top of the line passer who can deliver the ball with timing and accuracy with either hand. Rebounds his position well. A solid defender but doesn’t have a big defensive presence. Not necessarily a disruptor on that end. Has a tremendous overall feel for the game.”

Wherever Brumbaugh chooses, he’ll have several years of eligibility remaining.
