While several standout players are entering the NCAA transfer portal around this time, former Texas running back Toneil Carter has made his official decision.

Carter announced back in December that he'll leave the Longhorns, as the former four-star recruit didn't see enough snaps in the backfield.

After showing promise during his freshman season, Carter ultimately fell way behind on the depth chart in 2018 and didn't even play once.

Both Tre Watson and Keaontay Ingram saw the majority of carries, which is one of the main reasons for him transferring from Texas.

Now that his time is over with the Longhorns, the Langham Creek product will join Sam Houston State.

Carter announced on Twitter that he'll continue his collegiate career with the Bearkats.

Here is his official announcement:

He'll finish his time as a member of the Longhorns with 252 rushing yards and four total touchdowns.

Sam Houston State is fortunate enough to add a potential-packed tailback to lead its offense for the foreseeable future. After all, Carter still has three years of eligibility remaining.
