Texas linebacker Kendrick Blackshire has re-entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal, according to multiple reports.

Blackshire transferred to Texas from Alabama after Nick Saban's retirement. Per BurntOrange:

Blackshire has one year of eligibility remaining.

The Duncanville product signed with the Longhorns in January after taking official visits to Texas and Ole Miss following his departure from Alabama in the wake of head coach Nick Saban’s unexpected retirement.

Originally expected to compete for the starting job at middle linebacker, Blackshire started spring practice listed at 261 pounds on the Texas roster, up nearly 30 pounds from his listed weight at Alabama. Head coach Steve Sarkisian said that weight was heavier than the staff preferred.
