Texas Longhorns Secure Oregon Defensive Lineman Johnny Bowens

The Texas Longhorns continue to make waves in the NCAA Transfer Portal, with reports suggesting their interest in Oregon defensive line transfer Johnny Bowens. Bowens, who initially chose the Ducks over Texas and Texas A&M as part of the 2023 class, appears to be on the Longhorns’ radar once again.

This development follows closely on the heels of the Longhorns’ disappointment in missing out on TCU transfer defensive tackle Damonic Williams, who recently committed to the Oklahoma Sooners.

“Texas is now setting its sights on another defensive tackle,” reported On3’s Pete Nakos. “Sources indicate that Texas is a school to watch for Johnny Bowens. The former four-star recruit boasts four years of eligibility. As a top-300 prospect in the 2023 class, he made two tackles and appeared in three games during his true freshman season.”

Clearly, bolstering the interior defensive line has become a priority for the Longhorns this offseason. Just a fortnight ago, they secured former Arizona defensive tackle Bill Norton, marking the second Wildcats transfer alongside Tiaoalii Savea to join the program.

Now, attention turns to Bowens, who retains four years of eligibility after a limited showing of three games with the Ducks last season.

Hailing from Converse, Texas, Bowens was highly regarded as a consensus four-star recruit, ranking nationally at No. 206, as the 23rd defensive lineman, and 36th overall player in Texas, according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

In the portal rankings, Bowens currently sits at No. 392 overall and as the 35th defensive lineman, according to On3.
