With No 1 College Basketball Transfer Marcus Carr The Texas Longhorns Have Added To Their Offseason Haul

Marcus Carr, a Minnesota transfer, is the No.
On Saturday, No. 1 transfer this offseason revealed his commitment to Texas, giving Chris Beard’s Longhorns a strong argument to be the preseason No. 1 team.
1 for the upcoming season
Carr chose Texas over pursuing a professional career in Australia.
His last transfer possibilities included Louisville, Kentucky, and Kansas.
Carr first joined the transfer portal in March before making the decision to turn pro.
Carr withdrew his name from the NBA draft after it appeared that he would not be selected, opting to return to college in late June.
Carr, a 6-foot-2 guard from Toronto, was named third-team All-Big Ten after averaging 19.4 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 4.9 assists last season.
He was one of college basketball’s most explosive guards, scoring 30 or more points four times, including a 41-point outburst against Nebraska in February.
Carr began his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers before moving to Minnesota for the past two seasons.
Beard has now landed three of the top five and six of the top 31 transfers in ESPN’s top 100 transfer rankings.
Timmy Allen (17.2 PPG at Utah), Tre Mitchell (18.8 PPG at UMass), Christian Bishop (11.0 PPG at Creighton), Dylan Disu (15.0 PPG at Vanderbilt), and former five-star recruit Devin Askew (6.5 PPG at Kentucky) are among the transfer class’s members.
Beard’s Texas Tech teammate Avery Benson accompanied him to Austin.
Texas also returns two starters from a squad that earned a 3-seed in the NCAA tournament before losing in the first round to Abilene Christian. Andrew Jones (14.6 PPG) and Courtney Ramey (12.2 PPG)
Jaylon Tyson (No. 1) was also signed by Beard.
Last fall, he signed with Texas Tech and was ranked 29th in the ESPN 100.
If that wasn’t enough, Beard has already begun working with his recruiting class for 2022.
Just after Carr committed to Texas, ESPN 100 guard Arterio Morris also committed to the Longhorns.
Morris has been a priority for Beard this summer, and he was the only head coach at his final game of the weekend, an Under Armour event, last Sunday.
Texas is also a favorite to land elite guard Keyonte George, and in June, the Longhorns hosted top-30 talents Kijani Wright and Anthony Black, among a dozen others, on official visits.
