Adam Rittenberg believes that Texas was one of the big winners to come out of the draft early-entry deadline.

We agree. Texas is losing Lil'Jordan Humphrey at wideout, but they're bringing back Collin Johnson, and pretty much everything else of significance on offense. They'll also bring back Brandon Jones, a safety who was a likely top 75 pick if he had left for the NFL. Texas still has some issues to iron out before they're title contenders, but they certainly are closer than they were a few years ago. Rittenberg also lists Oregon, Michigan State, LSU and Auburn as big winners.

Texas redshirt senior T Calvin Anderson accepted an invitation to the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

Anderson (6'5/300) spent the first four years of his collegiate career at Rice, and was among the most high-profile recruited transfers despite playing for a program that hasn't exactly rivaled Alabama. He was a starter all year for the Longhorns, and helped lead Texas to a Sugar Bowl victory over Georgia and a 10-4 season. He currently profiles as a Day 3 pick, but his pedigree could help him improve that stock if he plays well in events like this.

Texas freshman QB Cameron Rising is visiting Utah this weekend.

Rising entered the now infamous transfer portal in December, and the 6-foot-2, 230-pound quarterback has taken his first -- as far as we know for now -- official visit to the Utes. He was a four-star recruit for the Longhorns, but the Texas quarterback room has gotten quite cluttered, and Utah could offer Rising a chance to play earlier than if he sticks around in Austin.

Texas junior S Brandon Jones will return to school for the 2019 season.

This was the general feeling back at the beginning of December, one month and a Sugar Bowl win over Georgia later, Jones will, indeed, be returning to Austin for the 2019 campaign as he looks to help Texas make a renewed push for the Big 12 title. The 6-foot, 205-pound junior registered 70 tackles (5.5 for loss), an interception and two passes defensed across 10 games played during the just-completed season.

Texas junior WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey declared for the 2019 NFL Draft.

Humphrey (6'4/225) heads to the NFL coming off a breakout junior season when he posted an impressive 86-1,176-9 receiving line while averaging 8.8 yards per target. Pro Football Focus gave Humphrey positive grades as a slot receiver, but he's also capable of making contested catches on the perimeter. Draft analysts also like his ability to break tackles and make plays after the catch, so an impressive NFL Combine will round out his draft stock as a Day 2 candidate.
Jan 8 - 3:30 PM

Texas four-star WR signee Marcus Washington was named the MVP of the "Ballaholics" team at the Under Armour All-America Game on Thursday.

Washington (6'2/177) posted a 7-89-2 receiving line during Thursday's high school all-star affair. It was his 15-yard scoring grab on a Jayden Daniels pass with 3:41 remaining in the contest which gave the Ballaholics a 28-27 lead, a lead which they would hold through to the end of the game. Washington signed on with Texas during the early December window and will be looking to carve out a role with the team this offseason.

Rivals' Josh Helmholdt said multiple receivers "looked the part physically" at the All-American Bowl, but "maybe none more than" Texas four-star 2019 ATH Jordan Whittington.

Helmholdt called Whittington a "specimen" and that his "strength and athleticism" will help him at wide receiver. Not only did Whittington improve his stock at the All-American Bowl, but Whittington just set a Texas high school record by scoring six touchdowns in the state title game. Already Rivals' No. 6 recruit in the state, Whittington may close in the top-five when the final rankings come out.

Texas junior WR Collin Johnson will return to school for the 2019 season.

Johnson (6'6/220) was kicking around a potential draft declaration, but will now instead be looking to help Texas make another push for the Big 12 title come the start of the 2019 campaign. The junior wideout posted a 68-985-7 receiving line over the course of 13 games played in the Longhorns' just-completed season.
Jan 3 - 2:49 PM

Texas sophomore QB Sam Ehlinger completed 19-of-27 passes for 169 yards while rushing for 64 yards and three touchdowns in Tuesday's 28-21 upset win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

Ehlinger (6'3/235) didn't light the field aflame as a passer, but repeatedly burned Georgia with his legs in Tuesday's upset bid, scoring rushing touchdowns in the first, second and fourth quarters. His 2018 season as a whole represented a stellar step forward from what he achieved a year ago. On the whole, the dual-threat signal-caller accounted for 41 touchdowns across 14 games played. He accounted for just 13 in nine games as a true freshman. Texas will enter the 2019 season with high expectations after the team made a run to the Big 12 title game before pulling off Tuesday's clutch unseating of the boys from Athens.
Jan 2 - 12:39 AM

Texas junior WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey caught seven passes for 67 yards in Tuesday's 28-21 win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

No touchdowns for Humphrey, but as has been the case in most every one of Texas' games this season, he made several slick catches. The 6-foot-4, 225-pound junior rocked a breakout 86-1176-9 receiving line for the campaign as a whole. He comes equipped with a palatable frame for pro work and a wicked ability to make contested catches. We shall see if a draft declaration will be forthcoming from Humphrey in the coming days.
Jan 2 - 12:34 AM

Texas redshirt senior RB Tre Watson rushed for 91 yards on 18 carries in Tuesday's 28-21 win over Georgia in the Sugar Bowl.

Watson (5'11/195) put forth his second-best yardage total of the campaign in this one, averaging 5.1 YPC with a long run of 20 yards to help the Longhorns pull off the upset. The Cal transfer ends his lone year in Austin with 786 rushing yards and three touchdowns. It was a very respectable showing for the redshirt senior, though he is unlikely to see much NFL love in the spring barring a surprisingly strong showing during the draft process.
Jan 2 - 12:30 AM

The Draft Network's Jon Ledyard believes that Texas senior DE Charles Omenihu has a chance to secure a top-50 selection with a strong performance at the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Ledyard thinks we could be about to see a groundswell of hype around Omenihu, who logged 43 tackles (16.0 for loss), 9.5 sacks and a forced fumble during the regular season. If you want a sneak peak of the standout defensive end, tune into the Sugar Bowl (currently airing).
Jan 1 - 9:30 PM

Texas freshman S Caden Sterns (knee) is expected to play in the upcoming bowl game.

An MRI for his injured knee after the Big 12 Championship Game revealed that Sterns did not need surgery, and the freshman was able to practice on Wednesday. As of now, it would be surprising if he's ruled out. Sterns has 62 tackles, four passes defended and four interceptions while appearing in all 13 of Texas' games.

Texas freshman DT Michael Williams will transfer.

Williams (6'2/240) did not appear in a game for the Longhorns this season and will be able to take a redshirt for 2018, preserving a year of eligibility in the process. He signed with Texas as a three-star recruit last winter. Barring a transfer out of the FBS, Williams will be required to sit out the 2019 campaign in order to satisfy NCAA transfer regulations.

Texas freshman QB Casey Thompson is listed in the NCAA transfer database.

Thompson was a four-star commit for the Longhorns who picked Texas over schools like Miami, North Carolina and UCF. With Sam Ehlinger entrenched as the starter for the next year or possibly two, it's likely that Thompson is looking for a chance to play soon. He'll have to sit out the 2019 season if he ends up at an FBS school, unless he's able to receive a hardship from the NCAA
