Transfer LB Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey visiting Texas football today

The latest visitor news among the targets of second-year head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff for the Texas football program in the NCAA transfer portal arrived this week. Texas is expected to welcome former FCS All-American and James Madison Dukes senior transfer linebacker Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey for an official visit to Austin this week.

Tucker-Dorsey posted on his Twitter timeline on the morning of May 23 that he was “locked up” for an official visit with the Longhorns for a few days this week. But there are conflicting reports coming out this week also saying that Tucker-Dorsey could only be visiting for one day.

Inside Texas, there’s one who reported that Tucker-Dorsey might be on campus for a day instead of the May 23-25 ​​timeline he posted on Twitter the morning of May 23.

Texas Football welcomes transfer All-American LB Diamonte Tucker-Dorsey for official visit starting May 23

It will be interesting to see how things play out with Tucker-Dorsey amid his visit with co-defensive coordinators/linebackers coaches Pete Kwiatkowski and Jeff Choate earlier this week. Tucker-Dorsey is expected to make a decision by the end of this week. A lengthy official visit to Texas could mean good things for the Longhorns’ chances in the race to get a Tucker-Dorsey commitment out of the gate before the summer.

Tucker-Dorsey also made an official visit with head coach Gus Malzahn and the UCF Knights last week. It’s also possible he could visit other schools that have offered him out of the portal, such as the Texas A&M Aggies, Ole Miss Rebels, and/or the Auburn Tigers.

Still, the spotlight is on the Longhorns right now with Tucker-Dorsey. If the coaches can make a big move with Tucker-Dorsey this week, Texas would be in a great position when it comes to this portal recruiting.

Texas has five additions through the transfer portal so far this offseason, highlighted by former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Quinn Ewers and Wyoming Cowboys wide receiver Isaiah Neyor. If Texas is able to land Tucker-Dorsey, it would be the second defensive commitment at the gate and the first at linebacker. The other defensive gate player the Longhorns have added this offseason is former Ohio State cornerback Ryan Watts.
