Former Five-Star Receiver to Transfer

A former five-star wide receiver prospect has elected to transfer from Texas.

Wide receiver Darius White has left Texas and is planning to transfer, sources told, and his Twitter account would seem to back up that notion.

Tuesday afternoon, White tweeted: "Headed back to FORT WORTH.... Ima miss all my boys at UT y'all keep grinding Fam".

White is a former five-star recruit, and was rated as one of the nation's top receivers in his 2010 high school class.

Early in White's freshman year, he made an outstanding leaping catch for a touchdown that was ruled out of bounds. In a way, it was a metaphor for White's now brief Texas career: always oozing potential, but never quite reaching it. His most memorable moment as a Longhorn might have come in the Texas Spring Football Jamboree, when he hauled in a jump ball from Case McCoy on a long third-down play that helped to set up a second-team touchdown.

Following that spring, the Texas staff was bullish on White's potential, with sources telling that the staff felt he was the single-most talented receiver prospect on the team. But his production never caught up with his talent, and he became more known for little mistakes in route-running and drops. He finished his Texas career with six catches for 71 yards.

Texas A&M has been tossed out as a potential White landing spot.
