Judson alumnus Treylin Payne is moving to Texas State

SAN MARCOS, Texas – The NCAA transfer portal season is in full swing and many big-name players are finding a better fit for their talents.

Former Judson High School linebacker Treylin Payne has decided to leave the University of Houston and move a little closer to home, transferring to Texas State University.

KSAT’s RJ Marquez tweeted the update from sources close to the Bobcats football program, and Payne then retweeted RJ’s tweet:

Payne comes to Texas State after two seasons at UH, where he totaled 49 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, one sack and one interception. During his time at Judson, Treylin was a three-star prospect and the No. 79 overall linebacker in the country according to 247Sports.

He had 366 tackles, three sacks, seven pass breakups and two interceptions from his sophomore through senior seasons at Judson and will look to strengthen the defensive core that put on a show at the Bobcats’ Spring Game.

Another big local name who also announced his departure from the Houston Cougars program is former Wagner High School wide receiver Joshua Cobbs, who is taking his talents to the University of South Florida.

Cobbs played his first two seasons of college football (2021, 2022) at the University of Wyoming, where he caught 60 passes for 652 yards and three touchdowns. This past year he caught just eight passes for 71 for Houston, which likely prompted him to attend the University of South Florida.

It will be an interesting offseason on the USF campus as Cobbs will have to compete for playing time against other transfer wide receivers like Abdur-Rahmaan Yaseen, who comes in after catching 34 passes for 456 yards over four seasons at Purdue University.
