Just over a week since announcing his transfer from Arizona Football, Brenden Schooler has finally announced he is transferring to Texas.
It has been a rather busy and unfortunate off-season for the Arizona Football team, especially as the Wildcats have been hit hard by the transfer market. Well over a week since announcing his transfer, Brenden Schooler is heading to Texas.
The older brother to Colin came to Tucson from Oregon prior to the season, but unfortunately he won’t ever suit up with the Wildcats.

Originally recruited by Oregon out of high school as an athlete, Brenden played safety in his first couple of seasons in Eugene, before making the switch to receiver in 2017.
He then appeared in 23 games at receiver with the Ducks, totaling 521 yards on 43 receptions with four touchdowns.
However, Brenden made a difficult choice. After appearing in just two games with Oregon and suffering a foot injury in 2019, he would decide to sit out and transfer with the hopes of keep one of year of eligibility intact.
Ultimately Brenden then decided to come to Tucson to join his brother Colin. Who could have thought we would be so lucky!
Unfortunately that didn’t quite work out, as Brenden has decided he is going to transfer again. And just yesterday his new school was revealed via social media. Austin it is, as Brenden will join the Longhorns.
The graduate senior is just longing to play this season, and we couldn’t be happier for him.
As for the Schooler family, we really can’t blame their decisions. They are just looking for their kids to have an opportunity to play football, and with no Pac-12 season happening this fall, their decision makes sense, regardless of how unfortunate it is for us Wildcat fans.
For Brenden he will be immediately eligible to play, and we will still cheer him on. Now we just wait for Colin’s decision. As always, Bear Down, Arizona!
