Report: Longhorns talented star bid goodbye to Texas as he sign with new team

Texas Longhorns Transfer Austin Jordan Finds a New Home.
Austin Jordan, a former Texas Longhorns defensive back, joined the transfer portal last month.
Austin — The Texas Longhorns have lost a few players to the transfer portal this offseason, as natural roster competition has prompted individuals to seek other possibilities.

Austin Jordan, a defensive back, was one of them, but he won’t be traveling far to find his new home.
According to On3’s Hayes Fawcett, Jordan has committed to the TCU Horned Frogs, where he will play for head coach Sonny Dykes in the 2024 Big 12 season.

Jordan recorded 11 total stops and an interception at Texas this year, including one in the season opener against Rice. He also returned a blocked PAT for a two-point conversion in a 26-16 victory over Iowa State on November 18, which was a significant touchdown in a game that the Longhorns needed to win to qualify for the College Football Playoff.

Jordan, a Denton, Texas native, received 20 recruiting offers and selected the Longhorns over Oklahoma, Ohio State, Auburn, Miami, and Notre Dame. According to 247Sports, he was listed as the No. 256 player in the nation, the No. 21 safety, and the No. 41 player in Texas.

Other noteworthy Longhorns who have entered the transfer portal this summer include running back Savion Red, cornerback Terrance Brooks, and linebacker Kendrick Blackshire, to mention a few.
