Texas CB Bryson Echols to graduate, transfer in May

Posted February 15th, 2016


Texas cornerback Bryson Echols announced on Twitter that he plans on graduating in May and will transfer elsewhere for his final year of eligibility.

“It was such a difficult decision to close this chapter of my life, but I know in the end it will be the best decision for me,” Echols wrote in a message to fans. “Hook ’em Horns forever and always!”

Echols, a reserve most of his career, had three tackles in six games last season. The junior from DeSoto played mostly on special teams in 2013 and 2014.
