Former Tennessee transfer receiver commit Isaiah Neyor is back in the transfer portal after spending two seasons at Texas, On3’s Hayes Fawcett reported Friday afternoon.

Neyor was one of the hottest names in the transfer portal following the 2021 season after putting up dominant numbers in his sophomore season at Wyoming. That year, Neyor caught 44 passes for 878 yards, and 12 touchdowns which was particularly impressive because of the run heavy offense he played in.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound receiver originally committed to Tennessee in January of 2022 before de-committing a few weeks later and flipping his commitment to Texas. After Neyor de-committed, the Vols went out and landed USC transfer receiver Bru McCoy.

Neyor appeared poised to start at receiver for Texas in 2022 before tearing his ACL in preseason camp and missing the entirety of the season with the injury.

The Fort Worth, Texas native was unable to carve out a big role on Texas’ College Football Playoff team, catching just one pass for 14 yards. The Longhorns have one of the nation’s best receiving units which includes 800-plus yard receivers Xavier Worthy and Adonai Mitchell.

Tennessee doesn’t have an overwhelming need for receivers in the transfer portal but has been connected to star South Carolina receiver transfer Antwane “Juice” Wells Jr.
