We start with the nation's top 2023 tailback, then catch up with a top 2022 target, followed by one of UT's priority running backs for 2022, an East Texan linebacker boasts about the Horns, and a Cali-bred linebacker wants to return to the ATX. Enjoy the evening news.
You don’t want to take too much away from a spring game when it comes to X’s and O’s, but Pete Kwiatkowski showed some interesting dimensions to his defense in Texas' public scrimmage.

The first spring game of the Steve Sarkisian era is now in the books. While it was technically a “vanilla” gameplan on both sides of the ball, they didn’t just run inside zone from 12 personnel 50 times into a 4-3 Over backed by cover 1. Each unit ran a variety of base schemes and gave a snapshot into what this team’s strategic identity will be in year one under Sark’s staff.
