Rice offensive tackle Calvin Anderson is heading across state to play for Texas as a graduate transfer.
Anderson announced Saturday that he would continue his career playing for the Longhorns, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The 6-foot-5, 300-pound Anderson had announced his plans to transfer in January and visited some of the elite programs in the country, including reigning national champion Alabama, Auburn, Oklahoma and Michigan.
Texas finished 7-6 in 2017 in its first season under coach Tom Herman, who spent the previous two seasons coaching at Houston.
Anderson figures to be in the mix for a starting job with the Longhorns, who have a need at the position after All-American Connor Williams left for the NFL Draft.
A two-time Conference USA honorable mention selection, Anderson started all 12 games in each of the last two seasons.
According to the Rice official website, Anderson was the only offensive lineman in the country to not allow one quarterback pressure while playing at least 128 snaps in pass protection.
