On Tuesday, the news broke that the Texas Longhorns picked up a commitment from former Texas A&M Aggies catcher Kimble Schuessler, who entered the NCAA transfer portal after his freshman season in College Station.

The Twitter background for Schuessler now features a Longhorn logo.

A three-year letter winner at Llano who hit .400 as a senior and .470 as a junior, Schuessler appeared in three games for Texas A&M during the 2021 season, going 1-for-2 with a bases-clearing double against Prairie View A&M and a walk.

Schuessler adds some catching depth for Texas with DJ Petrinskiy completing his eligibility. Silas Ardoin will maintain the starting role in 2022, with Schuessler competing for time as a backup. Redshirt sophomore Peyton Powell, redshirt sophomore Cam Constantine, and redshirt junior Caston Peter were the other catchers on the 2022 roster, but Powell could compete to become the starting designated hitter and Constantine can also play in the outfield.
