The 6’4, 190-pounder is the first transfer portal departure since Rodney Terry was named the head coach at Texas. A Massachusetts product, Brumbaugh redshirted during the 2022-23 season after signing with the Longhorns as a consensus four-star prospect ranked as the No. 89 player nationally and the No. 16 point guard, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings. Originally a Northwestern commit, Brumbaugh reopened his recruitment late in the 2022 recruiting cycle and quickly pledged to Texas.
With experienced depth at the guard position including sixth-year senior Marcus Carr and transfers Tyrese Hunter and Sir’Jabari Rice, Brumbaugh opted to redshirt due to a prospective lack of playing time, but was expected to compete for minutes under Terry with the departures of Carr and Rice and Hunter’s entrance into the 2023 NBA Draft, though the Iowa State transfer could still return to school.
