Texas Longhorns redshirt freshman cornerback X’Avion Brice entered the NCAA transfer portal on Monday as the 30-day transfer window opened.

Senior safety Jalen Catalon also entered the portal on Monday.

A 6’1, 183-pounder, Brice was a consensus three-star prospect ranked as the No. 650 player nationally and the No. 43 athlete in the 2022 recruiting class, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Brice initially pledged to Kansas early in his recruiting process before decommitting days after receiving offers from Texas and Oklahoma. The Sooners landed his second commitment less than a month later, but it didn’t stick as Brice took an official visit to Austin days before the early signing period opened in 2021 and flipped to the Longhorns on Early Signing Day.

After playing quarterback and wide receiver in addition to taking snaps in the secondary for Seguin, Brice was considered a developmental prospect when he signed, an evaluation that bore out over his two seasons on the Forty Acres. While redshirting in 2022, Brice appeared in blowout wins over ULM and Kansas, making his first career tackle against the Jayhawks. This season, Brice was third on the depth chart at boundary cornerback and once again made two appearances in lopsided victories over BYU and Texas Tech, recording one tackle against the Red Raiders.

Texas currently holds commitments from two cornerbacks in the 2024 recruiting class — Santana Wilson and Wardell Mack — while awaiting a decision next week from Kobe Black.
