Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline lists Texas senior CB Kris Boyd as one of his "risers" for his play on Saturday against USC.

Boyd had some ankle issues against Maryland and Tulsa, but he looked healthy against USC. " Boyd was terrific in all facets of his position posting 5 tackles, breaking up 1 pass and picking off 1 throw, which the Longhorns converted into a field goal," Pauline writes. At 6-foot, 195-pounds, Boyd has solid size, and as Pauline notes, he plays a physical brand of football. He's certainly a name to keep an eye on over the next three-plus months.

Texas received a verbal commitment from four-star 2019 RB Derrian Brown.

Brown was on an official visit to see the Longhorns take on USC, and the tailback obviously liked what he saw. The 5-foot-10, 179-pound tailback is ranked 15th in the country at the position by 247 Sports composite rankings, and the Buford, Georgia native is ranked 26th among prospects in the Peach State. They also rank Texas's class ninth overall after Brown's commitment, and second among Big 12 schools.

Texas junior WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught four passes for 84 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 37-14 win over USC.

Humphrey (6'4/225) started the 34-0 run by hauling in a 41 yard touchdown thrown by Sam Ehlinger in the second quarter. Texas' "Swiss Army Knife" is now up to 275 receiving yards and two touchdowns through three games after boasting a 37-431-1 line as a sophomore. Ehlinger has two great options -- Collin Johnson has NFL potential -- and the Longhorns offense is improving after the tough start to the season. Another big matchup awaits Texas next weekend as TCU comes to Austin.
Sep 16 - 12:24 AM

Texas sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger completed 15-of-33 passes for 223 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 37-14 win over USC.

Ehlinger (6'3"/235) led the Longhorns to their 900th win by creating many big plays through the air and adding 35 yards and one touchdown on the ground. The sophomore quarterback has made steady improvements since the opening loss against Maryland. In tonight's big win over Trojans, Ehlinger was able to link up with Lil'Jordan Humphrey and Joshua Moore for scores. The overall performance is just what Texas needed to get the narrative back on positive tracks. Unfortunately, the Longhorns play TCU next weekend but at least all three phases looked good tonight.
Sep 16 - 12:07 AM

Texas freshman RB Keontay Ingram (knee) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against USC.

No real surprise, here, as Longhorns HC Tom Herman said during the practice week that true frosh Ingram was unlikely to be able to play versus the Trojans. Tre Watson and Daniel Young figure to see the bulk of carries on Saturday now that Ingram has been ruled out.
Sep 15 - 6:26 PM

Uncommitted four-star 2019 RB Derrian Brown is taking an official visit to Texas this weekend.

Brown (5'10/180) will be in Austin for Saturday's game against USC. Rivals analyst Chad Simmons passes along that we may well see an outright commitment to the Longhorns after this visit, as Texas has been riding lead for his services for a while, now. Rivals ranks Brown as the No. 245 overall prospect in the 2019 class.

Texas HC Tom Herman said that it's unlikely that freshman RB Keontay Ingram (knee) will be able to play in Saturday's game against USC.

Ingram (6'0/205) was banged up in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over Tulsa, when he sustained a bone bruise and a strained MCL. Herman said at the beginning of the week that the freshman was in danger of missing the upcoming matchup with the Trojans, and nothing appears to have changed in the interim. Expect Tre Watson and Daniel Young to see the bulk of the carries versus Clay Helton's crew in this weekend's showdown between ghosts of good teams past.
Sep 13 - 8:09 PM

Texas announced that redshirt sophomore T Patrick Hudson has been released from the hospital after he suffered an apparent heat-related illness in practice last week.

Hudson (6'5/325) was initially taken to the hospital last Wednesday, after he came down with what Longhorns HC Tom Herman described as a "full-body cramp" during practice. He was placed in an ice bath to lower his temperature before being taken by ambulance to the ICU. Per Texas' press release, the redshirt sophomore lineman will return to class on Thursday. There's no current timetable for him to resume physical activity.
Sep 12 - 6:58 PM

Texas HC Tom Herman indicated Monday that freshman RB Keaontay Ingram (knee) will likely miss Saturday's game against USC.

Ingram, who was injured in the fourth quarter of Saturday's win over Tulsa, is listed as doubtful for the Trojans. Herman said Ingram was diagnosed with a bone bruise and a strained MCL, but the good news is that the MRI didn't reveal any meniscus damage in Ingram’s knee. Tre Watson and Daniel Young are listed as the top two RBs on UT’s updated Monday depth chart.
Sep 10 - 1:34 PM

Texas junior WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught seven passes for 109 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 28-21 win over Tulsa.

Humphrey (6'4/225) is Texas' "Swiss Army Knife" and he showcased his talents in this one. With star wideout Colin Johnson drawing coverage, Humphrey scored from 40 yards out as he dove into the end zone. Through two games, Humphrey has 191 yards and is looking like a great target for Ehlinger. The Longhorns face the Trojans next week.
Sep 9 - 12:37 AM

Texas redshirt senior RB Tre Watson rushed for 74 yards on 18 carries in Saturday's 28-21 win over Tulsa.

Watson (5'10/190) was the leading rusher for the Longhorns and will be even more involved if freshman Kaeontay Ingram's knee injury causes him to miss games. The redshirt senior missed most of last year with a torn ACL, so it is a good sign that he was able to find some success early in the year. Watson and the Longhorns have a marquee matchup with the Trojans next Saturday.
Sep 9 - 12:30 AM

Texas freshman RB Keaontay Ingram will have his knee reevaluated tomorrow.

Coach Tom Hermann said Ingram (6'1/187) suffered a knee injury late in the game and the team will figure out what exactly is wrong with it tomorrow. Ingram was excellent once again before his injury. On his 10 carries, Ingram ran for 64 yards and a touchdown. Hopefully the knee injury isn't bad because Ingram has the talent to be one of the nation's most exciting backs. The four-star recruit would play USC at home if he is able to suit up, but we won't know his availability for a bit.
Sep 9 - 12:24 AM

Texas sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger completed 21-of-27 passes for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 28-21 win over Tulsa.

Ehlinger also added 51 yards and a score on the ground. The sophomore drew the start over Shane Buechele and played well enough to stay in the game the entire time. Ehlinger was much better in tonight's win than last weeks loss to Maryland. Lil'Jordan Humphrey scored from 40 yards out and running back Tre Watson scored a red zone touchdown on a Ehlinger pass. With the win, Ehlinger is definitely the favorite to start next weekend against USC, but if he struggles, Buechele is likely to enter.
Sep 9 - 12:19 AM

Texas redshirt sophomore T Patrick Hudson was hospitalized for a heat-related illness on Wednesday.

Hudson (6'5/325) had what HC Tom Herman described as "a full body cramp" during Wednesday's practice. He was put in an ice bath before being taken by ambulance to the hospital. The redshirt sophomore was removed from the ICU after his temperature returned to normal, but remained in the hospital as of Thursday night. Understandably, he won't be taking the field with the rest of his Longhorn teammates when times comes for Saturday's kickoff against Tulsa. There's no immediate timetable for his return to action.

Sep 7 - 6:20 PM

Texas freshman RB Keaontay Ingram will play more against Tulsa next Saturday.

Texas OC Tim Beck said Ingram (6'1/187) will "probably" get more touches "each and every week." In the season opener, Ingram rushed six times for 37 yards -- 6.2 YPC -- and a touchdown. It was an impressive start, but he was the third in carries between running backs. Tre Watson led the Longhorns in carries with 12 followed by Daniel Young's eight. Ingram will start stealing some of those carries as the year progresses. The four-star recruit was the No. 102 overall recruit according to ESPN.
