DeAndre McNeal’s career with the Teas Longhorns has come to an end.
Last week, it was reported that the rising sophomore wide receiver was “suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.” Now, according to a report from 247 Sports, he is set to transfer from the program.
Texas granted McNeal his release, but it comes with a handful of restrictions.
Along with blocking McNeal from transferring to any other school in the Big 12, he is also prohibited from making the move to Notre Dame, UTEP or Cal.
If McNeal transfers to another FBS program, he will be forced to sit out one season. He will be eligible to play immediately if he chooses to drop down to the FCS level, but that does not seem likely.
While there is no word on where McNeal will land, reports indicate he will consider his original finalists, UCLA and Texas A&M.
DeAndre McNeal tells me he is leaving Texas. Not sure where to, but will consider his original finalists UCLA & A&M. 247 first to report.
