AUSTIN (AP)  Texas redshirt freshman running back Traylon Shead is leaving the No. 21 Longhorns and will transfer to another school.

A former high school All-American at Cayuga High School, Shead announced his decision Sunday night through a team spokesman. Shead did not say which school he will attend.

Shead played high school football in Class 1A, the state’s division for the smallest schools. He set a Texas record for career touchdowns with 141 and rushed for 10,291 yards. Shead redshirted in 2010 but his playing time has been limited this season with the Longhorns, who have turned to freshmen running backs Malcolm Brown and Joe Bergeron.

Texas (6-2) plays at Missouri (4-5) on Saturday.
