After battling injuries during his first two years in Austin and falling behind in the wide receiver rotation, redshirt sophomore Greg Timmons has reportedly elected to transfer from Texas, according to reports from Orangebloods and Inside Texas. The 6-3, 200-pounder from Eisenhower High School in Houston was an Army All-American after a successful prep career, but was never able to stay healthy while at Texas and fell behind Malcolm Williams, Darius White, and John Harris at the crowded receiver position.
The loss is not unexpected, as Timmons was a primary attrition candidate following the spring. With the news of his impending transfer, Grambling State is the school receiving the most mention as the likely landing spot. As for Texas, the decision puts the Longhorns one over the 85-man scholarship limit from the fall with several more players likely to leave campus before the start of the season. It also puts Texas one scholarship closer to having enough room for the 2012 class, which currently has 14 scholarships available at this time. In other words, this was a decision that will likely benefit both Timmons and the Longhorns.
