Here is the current Texas Football roster. I've included 2015 to make it as current as possible but keep in mind these guys aren't Longhorns until the NCAA clearinghouse says so. Also, there will be some subtractions in the coming months via transfers, some might be coming down pretty soon. For now, I'm going off the Texas Sports roster. Take a peak.
Charlie Strong's inaugural Texas campaign undoubtedly proved his wizardry as a defensive mind. He took the same parts that previously comprised a soft and undisciplined defense and made them one of the Big 12's best. Heading into 2015, much of the 2014 defense's key components have been lost to senior attrition, but he was still able to reinforce his reputation in the minds of many during the Spring game, especially when you take into consideration the young, inexperienced, and injured roster.
This week's Inside Scoop takes a closer look at the athletic o-line duo from east Texas, the UT tight end situation and a pair of pass-catchers visiting soon. We also touch base with a few under the radar types that Texas is contacting, and deliver a Tevin Mack update. It's here in the Scoop.
Spring football is in the bag, let's examine the depth chart in detail. Strong removed a lot of the guesswork by fielding 1st and 2nd teams on Saturday, but we'll see who's pushing who. I'll also use my amazing powers of guess-work to take a stab at the pre-Notre Dame depth chart.
Okay, Saturday's scrimmage was clean and crisp, especially early on. Color me intrigued by much what I saw. Like many have said, the defense played better than expected, but I also saw a lot to like on offense. It's a zero sum game to be sure, but I was oddly pleased with both sides of the ball.

As our own dos bobby has noted, there’s only so much you can tell from a spring game. It’s basically a glorified scrimmage that is designed primarily for fan consumption. The coaches aren’t taking many risks here and have the mindset of a lawyer, mostly asking questions they already know the answers to.
