For the Texas Longhorns, the transfer portal giveth, and the transfer portal taketh away as the team is poised to lose another player on an off-season transfer move.

According to 247Sports, Texas senior kicker Joshua Rowland is set to enter the transfer portal in order to play one more year at another school.

As a junior in 2017, Rowland went 11-of-18 on field goals, and was 38-of-38 on extra point attempts.

Rowland did not play in any games this past season. Freshman Cameron Dicker won the starting job and finished the season 18-of-25 on field goals and 51-of-52 on extra point attempts.

In entering the transfer portal, Rowland joins a crop of Texas players that have either left or on the verge of leaving.

Quarterback Cameron Rising is on his way to Utah, while quarterback Shake Buechele, running back running backs Kyle Porter and running back Tristian Houston are all waiting for the right move.

The Longhorns have gotten plenty of benefit from the transfer portal though. They recently landed five-star rated receiver Bru McCoy on a transfer from USC.

Texas finished the season with a 10-4 record - their best since 2009 - which included an upset win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.
