Texas will have players drafted in the first two rounds. That should help defend against the annual negative recruiting attack a Texas staff (choose any of the last four staffs) finds itself under.
Texas safety Caden Sterns comes from a football family. One older brother, Jordan, played at Oklahoma State and spent time in the NFL. Another older brother, Jamison, played at West Texas A&M.
Quarterback Sam Ehlinger, offensive lineman Samuel Cosmi, linebacker Joseph Ossai, safety Caden Sterns, and cornerback D'Shawn Jamison all were named to the Preseason All-Big 12 team, the conference announced Thursday.
In his sophomore season, linebacker Joseph Ossai was second on the Longhorns in tackles (81), tackles for loss (7.5), and interceptions (2). He did this bouncing between the boundary linebacker and rover positions, often playing both over the course of any of Texas’ 12 games.
