Another domino has fallen in the world of College Football. With the Big-10 and Pac-12 canceling their fall 2020 seasons, it should come as no surprise that many players are entertaining the thought of entering the transfer portal in hopes of finding somewhere to play their final year(s).

On Friday, Oregon wide receiver Brenden Schooler added his name to that list. The graduate transfer has reportedly found a new home in Austin, as he will join the Texas Longhorns for the 2020 season.

Schooler is a 6’2 190-pound wideout who, in 2016, was a three-star prospect via the 247Sports Composite. Listed as an athlete, Schooler can play both sides of the ball.

As a freshman, Schooler played safety and recorded 74 tackles with four interceptions. He then moved to wide receiver for his sophomore and junior seasons where he caught 41 passes for 477 yards and four touchdowns in those two seasons.

Schooler then had to deal with an injury that forced him to miss time his senior season. Upon returning, upset by the lack of playing time, he decided to redshirt his final year and look for another school to finish his collegiate career at.

His intention was to link up with his brother, Colin, at Arizona, but with the PAC-12 season being cancelled both decided to enter the transfer portal.

Schooler will be the second transfer at the receiver position for Texas as he joins former Michigan wide receiver, Tarik Black. There is no news currently on his brother’s status, but gaining Brenden could go a long way in helping Texas gain another linebacker for their defensive unit.
