The Texas Longhorns are working on assembling their 2023-24 men’s basketball roster and we’ll track every move here throughout the offseason.
F Timmy Allen: The forward was out of eligibility after the season. He played two years at Texas and wrapped up his career with 10.5 points and 5.6 rebounds per game during the Longhorns’ Elite Eight run. He’s now pursuing a shot at pro basketball.
F Christian Bishop: He used his COVID waiver to play one last season of college basketball with the Longhorns. He was a vital part of the Elite Eight run off the bench, as he averaged 6.6 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.
G Rowan Brumbaugh: He didn’t play last season and transferred to Georgetown.
G Marcus Carr: His two seasons at Texas came to an end as he was out of eligibility. He had a great final season, averaging a team-high 15.9 points per game.
G Arterio Morris: Morris played in all 38 games, despite the cloud of his arrest last June for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend (a trial that has been postponed). Morris averaged 4.6 points and transferred to Kansas after the season.
G Sir’Jabari Rice: An invaluable reserve, he transferred from New Mexico State for his final season of college basketball and averaged 13 points per game.
In the NBA Draft
F Dillon Mitchell: His athletic ability has caught the eye of NBA scouts and he declared for the NBA Draft after he averaged 4.3 points and 3.9 rebounds per game. He maintained his eligibility and he has until the end of May to decide if he wants to come back to Texas.
Arrivals Via Transfer
G Max Abmas (from Oral Roberts): Perhaps the game’s top transfer guard, Abmas will play his final season of college basketball for Texas. Abmas is the NCAA Division I active career scoring leader (2,562 points). That’s all you really need to know.
G Chendall Weaver (from UT Arlington): The WAC Freshman of the Year averaged 9.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists in a team-best 29.5 in minutes per contest.
G Kadin Shedrick (from Virginia): A three-year player for Virginia, Shedrick averaged 6.2 points and 3.8 rebounds last season.
F Ze’Rik Onyema (from UT El Paso): The 6-foot-8 forward gives Texas depth. He averaged 4.7 points and 3.0 rebounds for the Miners the past three seasons.
Expected to Return
F Alex Anamekwe: He played in just 12 games and hopes to carve out a larger role next season.
F Cole Bott: He played in nine games last season for Texas.
F Preston Clark: He did not play last season.
F Dylan Disu: Disu announced he would use his additional year of eligibility after the NCAA Tournament. He became a star for Texas during the Elite Eight run and finished with 8.8 points and 4.4 rebounds per game.
G Tyrese Hunter: He went through the NBA Draft process but announced in May he would return for his junior season. Last year he averaged 10.3 points for the Longhorns.
G Gavin Perryman: Perryman played in 11 games last season.
F Brock Cunningham: He announced that he would return for a — gulp — sixth season after he averaged just 4.6 points and 3.4 rebounds last season. The ultimate glue guy or the ultimate pest, depending on what jersey you’re wearing.
Class of 2023 Signees
Texas has no prep signees at this time. Ron Holland asked for a release from his national letter of intent in April. Texas granted the request in May. A.J. Johnson did the same and has signed a contract with an Australian pro league.
