Texas Longhorns Post Spring Game Thoughts - Three Quick Takes

Mitch Lovell

Steve Sarkisian and the Texas Longhorns wrapped up Spring Camp with the annual Orange and White scrimmage on Saturday.  There were a multitude of positions and players to discuss, some which wowed and some which are still a work in progress.  Here are several thoughts on what transpired at Darrell K. Royal - Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday evening.

1.  Quinn Ewers is the guy to lead the offense. He is young and still has room to grow but the offense just has a different groove with him at the helm than when Hudson Card is leading. Card isn't a bad option by any stretch of the imagination, but with Ewers there is a different ceiling that is possible. The deep ball to wide receiver Isaiah Neyor that resulted in a touchdown was an absolute beauty.


2.  The offensive line still is a work in progress. The spring game is a zero sum game but there were times that both Card and Ewers were under pressure to the point of having no time to do anything in the pocket. While that could indicate the defensive line is just better, we know what this offensive line was last year. If the offensive line can manage to be just average, the Longhorns can have one of the best offenses in the nation.

3.  Isaiah Neyor is someone who really passes the eye test.  The zip ball from Ewers was exceptional, but Neyor looks like the player Texas needs that will take pressure off of Xavier Worthy. When Jordan Whittington went down last year, the offense experienced a drop-off in performance. With the addition of Neyor, Sark has another extremely reliable receiver.  Neyor could very well solidify himself as the number two guy in the receiving corps when the season gets underway.  Big offseason pickup for Steve Sarkisian.
