Texas publishes an in-depth chart ahead of the opening of the Louisiana season

On Monday, the Texas Longhorns released an in-depth graph in preparation for Saturday’s season opener against the Louisiana Ragin ’Cajuns at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium.

The first official depth chart for new head coach Steve Sarkisian contained no real surprises among the headlines after Saturday’s reports that first-year red-shirt Hudson Card won the initial battle against junior Casey Thompson.

First, the depth graph and then some reflections.

  • Sarkisian went with the talented young quarterback who has all the advantages in the world. Perhaps Thompson would have been the safest choice with his experience, but it’s time to see what all the talented arm talent and athletics can produce for Card.
  • Running back is a box office: don’t expect to see much of seniors Daniel Young and Gabe Watson this season unless they can form some special team units.
  • There are also no surprises among the headliners of the great receiver, with the impact that Xavier Worthy has had since he arrived as a registrant in the summer.
  • The big losers for the big receiver are senior Montrell Estell, who didn’t make the depth chart thanks to inclusions from freshman Casey Cain and the exclusion of fast freshman Jaden Alexis, who signed up early.
  • The first year Gunnar Helm pushes young Jared Wiley young enough to win a co-headline role, as the online closure is further proof that Helm has exceeded first expectations with his ability as a blocker and has not disappointed in flashing. the ability to capture made him an intriguing prospect when he signed. Ja’Tavion Sanders has a lot of work to do to block the rotation.
  • Serving as a backup for left-handed super-striker Denzel Okafor is a positive development for sophomore Tyler Johnson, who started a game last season but was not guaranteed his place in the rotation.
  • The main loser on the offensive line could be right-back Isaiah Hookfin, second in the third team, who spent the first year in red shirt Hayden Conner. Meanwhile, young Raifit Ghirmai took over the backup center from a younger player with red-shirt freshman Logan Parr and student Max Merril, a small future when he signed, who plays on guard.
  • Former player Jett Bush is back in a defensive position after starting with inside defenders, while his former teammate Luke Brockermeyer officially won the job at center-back thanks to his impressive play since the coach arrived. of the position Jeff Choate.
  • In the position of strong defender, Ovie Oghoufo, the transfer of Notre Dame, is the incumbent after receiving public praise from Sarkisian. The question is how much defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski will actually use this position, with nickel, mainly the basis of college football, as it has been for years.
  • Speaking of nickel, Anthony Cook never gave up on winning this job with junior Chris Adimora serving as the main backup.
  • Senior BJ Foster is the only clear starter in safety with Brenden School super senior, co-starting with sophomore Jerrin Thompson, who played so well towards the end of last season.
  • There are no big surprises on special teams after what coordinator Jeff Banks recently said, but Card is the starting lineup. And there is certainly a lot of speed in the return units.
