Cal redshirt senior RB Tre Watson transferred to Texas as a graduate.
Watson (5'10/190) was going to land in the state of Texas one way or another, as his two finalists were the Longhorns and Red Raiders. LSU and earlier, BYU, had also been in the offseason hunt to reel in the grad transfer. While Watson played in just two games with the Golden Bears last season before missing the rest of the campaign due to a knee injury, he posted 709 yards rushing and a quartet of touchdowns when healthy in 2016 and makes for a strong addition to Texas' work-in-progress offense. He's got a clear path to carries with a productive summer. Already rostered backs Toneil Carter and Daniel Young both struggled at times with ball security and consistency in the spring -- an issue which HC Tom Herman was not afraid to speak about publicly -- and while Young was reportedly making positive strides near the end of the spring, the position should be considered a pretty open one.
