Other than recruiting there isn't a whole lot in the off-season to tide us over other than talking about the team. Because of that, most of you know the current roster about as well as anyone. However, I do find it a worthwhile exercise to reassess each position and player one more time ahead of the season as a way to resharpen our familiarity with each.
At this same point in the 2018 recruiting cycle nobody -- coaches included -- foresaw the following players signing with Texas: wide receiver Josh Moore, defensive lineman Moro Ojomo, defensive lineman Daniel Carson, defensive lineman Michael Williams, offensive lineman Christian Jones, and offensive lineman Mikey Grandy. Even with Grandy giving up football this grouping increased the ceiling of the class immensely.
AUSTIN -- Texas' class of 2018 continues to grow in size and talent. Today, the Longhorns added someone with both. 2018 Independence (MO) William Chrisman DL Daniel Carson committed to Texas today. Carson had competing offers from Oklahoma, Nebraska, Missouri, Miami (FL), and Ohio State among others.
