So who else will we target over the summer besides this LB? Grad transfers? 

Sark mentioned several times in those booster Q&A's that they were still looking for WR's - I don't think it ends with Jordan Addison.  I'm sure we'd look at another Edge if a good grad-transfer entered the portal.

Right now the portal is pretty barren:  https://247sports.com/Season/2022-Football/TransferPortal/  and I wouldn't expect it to get much better.  You'd think most everyone who was planning to transfer - even grad transfers - would have likely entered it by now.  Summer workouts start in the next week.

Aren't they required to be in it at this point since the deadline passed a couple of weeks ago?

I don't think it matters for grad-transfers but there is nothing(that I've found) that specifically says they are included or excluded from that May 1 date.  I've just assumed that a grad transfer is in their own separate category.

Ah that makes sense. Thanks for the clarification

Some Illinois sophomore just entered the Portal, so it's clearly not a hard-and-fast deadline:

Players can enter the portal whenever - but need a waiver to enter after May 1 and play the fall season (not sit out a year).

Didn't we sign a hobbit from North Dakota or did I dream that?

We got a walk on from one of the Dakota's I believe - I don't think he's being included in any depth charts, and he certainly wasn't who Sark was talking about in the Q&A's.

3.7 mil for a one year rental. Na we good. 

Agree.

On another note, can you imagine how much $ Johnny 8 Ball would have taken aggy for if NIL and the Portal existed as it does now when he was there? Those rubes would still be playing in their old stadium and he’d most likely be in prison or dead from overdose.

More receivers huh. Looks like sark is going after the sumlin approach. Maybe a OL and some defensive guys would be nice. 

Oh for fuck's sake.  We're not getting an OL - Sark & Co. are happy with what we recruited.  We've been after several defensive players and are currently scheduled to host the grad-transfer LB who just went into the portal.

Sark is just worried about the numbers.  That's probably smart.

I didn’t really understand this bitchy comment so I went and looked. His first full class had 20 defensive players/O-lineman out of 33. 2014 was 17 of 22 were defensive players/O-lineman including Myles Garret who was a bamf. 2015 was 17 of 27 were defensive players/O-lineman including the #14 overall player in Mack. 2016 and 2017 exactly the same kind of classes. You contradicted yourself while also being a whiny bitch. Impressive. Carry on sir.

Spoiler

Cole Hutson, OG, Texas
247Sports Composite: No. 366

Texas’ starting o-line mix is still very much up in the air, and Hutson stands to benefit. Hutson impressed as an early enrollee to the point he started at right guard during Texas’ final spring scrimmage. Hutson will have every chance to earn a starting spot in fall camp and at worst will be in the rotation for a unit that has far more question marks than answers going into 2022.

Devon Campbell, OL, Texas
247Sports Composite: No. 9

If Hutson doesn’t end up starting at right guard, it might end up being Campbell, who arrives in Austin this summer. The No. 1-ranked o-lineman in the country, Campbell is 6-foot-3, 310 pounds with athleticism that would make a lot of skill players jealous. Campbell has college-ready strength and pairs that with speed (sub-5 seconds in the 40) that makes him a devastating second-level blocker. And it’s not like Campbell will compete with an established starter. He’s going to force his way into Texas’ starting lineup at some point this year.

 Kelvin Banks, OT, Texas
247Sports Composite: No. 33

Yep, another Longhorn true freshman offensive lineman. This is a tough position to play for a youngster, but in this case I feel very safe in saying all three of Hutson, Campbell and Banks will be in the two deep. As for Banks’ future, he will have every chance to push Christian Jones at right tackle when he arrives this summer. Like Campbell, Banks is more college-ready than many other incoming offensive linemen. He’s going to be given every chance to play.  

Jaylon Guilbeau, CB, Texas
247Sports Composite: No. 159

Guilbeau’s inclusion here comes with a sizable caveat:  He was suspended on April 12 for a violation of team activities. That said, earlier in the spring Guilbeau had been splitting first-team reps at cornerback. Assuming Guilbeau returns to the coaching staff’s good graces as expected, he’s going to play quite a bit at a position where Texas needs help.

By the way, don't be shocked if some of Texas' true freshmen EDGE rushers like J'mond Tapp end up playing quite a bit. But I didn't want to totally overwhelm this list with Longhorns. 

Four Longhorns in 247's list of "The 100 true freshmen who matter in 2022" , including 3 OL.
