Texas Longhorns 2022 Offensive Personnel Preview
Texas is coming into the 2022 season with major hype surrounding this team. Consistently year in and year out we hear the same question, “Is Texas back?”. Will this be the year Texas responds to the hype? The offensive personnel can be a juggernaut this year with the additions on the offensive side of the ball, but the answers will all come from the quarterback.
1A- Quinn Ewers
The 2021 5 star and #1 recruit that transferred from Ohio State is prepared to take over the starting job. Ewers proved in the spring game that his big arm is worth all the talk but can the big arm make up for the freshman mistakes? All things considered, The expectation is that Ewers will get every chance to prove that he’s their guy.
1b- Hudson Card
Card was hesitant his first year under center. The quarterbacks decision making was lacking and this year he must prove that he has improved drastically for the Longhorns to trust him as their #1. The difference between these two Quarterbacks is simple; risk/reward. Ewers can sling it but will make plenty of mistakes, while Card last year proved he’s a little hesitant and is limited to big plays
1: Bijan robinson
Coming off a 1,000 yard season, Robinson is featured as a clear Heisman favorite. If the Texas Longhorns are going to get back to the top of the BIG 12 then it will be on the shoulders of the RB1 to make plays once again.
WR- Xavier worthy, Isaiah Neyor, Jordan Whittington
Coming off a big freshman season with 981 yards and 12 touchdowns receiving, Worthy is going to be the big play machine for Texas this year. Neyor, The transfer from Wyoming is coming off a big year in which receiving all Mountain West First Team honors. The Redshirt Junior is going to need to be a big weapon on the outside to help with the attention Xavier Worthy will be receiving from the defense. Whittington, The redshirt junior has all the ability in the world but the one question remains, can Whittington stay healthy? Despite the injury concerns, when healthy Whittington has proved he can make plays all over the field.
Ja’Tavion Sanders, Jahleel Billingsly
This tight ends group is ready to make a big splash on the field with Billingsly and Sanders. The transfer from Alabama who has had his share of off the field issues for the Tide. When on the field for the Crimson Tide, Billingsly made a big impact. Ja’tavion Sanders, The former 5 star recruit who has a made huge strides in spring balls is ready to prove he can become that security blanket in the passing game.
The biggest question of Texas this year is the men in the trenches. Which freshman will show up and what other guys can fill the gap of the guys that graduated. With the additions of 5 stars, Kelvin Banks, Devon Campbell, and Neto Umeozulu can these guys step up and be the anchor on this O-line? Texas will struggle to get back to the top of BIG 12 if these young guys don’t step up.
