The Longhorns are once again under the scholarship limit following three departures from the program.

After the departures of junior college linebacker transfer to Caleb Johnson and freshman offensive tackle Javonne Shepherd to parts unknown, the Texas Longhorns lost another player to the NCAA Transfer Portal on Thursday when the school confirmed that redshirt sophomore wide receiver Jordan Pouncey intends to leave the program.

With those three players now out of the program or on the way out, here’s the latest roster matrix, updated to reflect the departures, recent position changes and the walk ons now on scholarship:

It’s notable that multiple third-year players are now on scholarship, along with second-year players Luke Brockermeyer and Justin Mader. Typically, coaches award one-year scholarships to seniors, but some of these former walk ons will likely be on scholarship for multiple seasons and that reflects a move away from college football orthodoxy for head coach Tom Herman and his staff.

The linebacker depth is also particularly concerning, as four of the 11 players on scholarship at the moment are either former walk ons or out for the season, in the case of freshman De’Gabriel Floyd. Texas holds a commitment from B-backer Prince Dorbah in the 2020 class, but doesn’t have any pledges from pure linebackers or even any targets who are likely to choose the Longhorns.
