A four-star dual-threat quarterback is reportedly considering a transfer this offseason.

Casey Thompson, the No. 14 dual-threat quarterback in the 2018 recruiting class, has reportedly entered his name into the NCAA's transfer portal.

247Sports first reported the news of Thompson's potential transfer.

He's not the only Texas quarterback considering a transfer, too.

From 247Sports:

According to two sources close to the situation, Casey Thompson has joined fellow redshirt freshman quarterback Cameron Rising in entering his name into the new, NCAA transfer portal to re-open his recruitment and explore transfer options.

According to sources, Herman spent Thursday and Friday trying to convince his two, redshirt freshmen quarterbacks not to leave. But the two, four-star prospects signed in 2018 wanted to explore their options.

The NCAA transfer portal, which launched for the first time in October, allows student-athletes to re-open their recruitment while still maintaining the possibility of staying at their current school.

Texas went 9-4 this season and is set to play Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

Stay tuned for the transfer news.
