Darius James to Transfer From Texas

Former five-star offensive lineman Darius James is yet another player to leave the Texas football program under head coach Charlie Strong, as he announced Tuesday that he will be transferring from the program.

James, a 6’6”, 320-pound redshirt sophomore, confirmed his decision to transfer to Brian Davis of the Austin- American-Statesman:

Texas offensive lineman Darius James said he’s been released from his scholarship and will transfer elsewhere. “Yes, sir,” he told the American-Statesman on Tuesday.
James (6 feet 5, 304 pounds) started two games last season but played in six. The redshirt freshman missed the back half of the year with a knee injury.

Horns247.com also confirms it is an unconditional release and James could seek to transfer anywhere he desires. The site also cites that he has put out feelers to some power-five conference teams. James’ departure marks the fifth offensive lineman to leave the Longhorns under Strong after guys like Desmond Harrison and Kennedy Estelle have already left the program. He will have three years of eligibility once he transfers to a new school.

James was one of the more highly-touted offensive line prospects in the 2013 class. He was ranked as the best offensive guard and the No.35 player overall according to 247sports.com.
