AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas released its depth chart for the season opener against Maryland Monday.
There’s a massive split between the number of veterans and freshmen on the two-deep. Some of the hype surrounding Texas’ expectations stems from 13 seniors earning a starting role.
While youth is served from the exceptional 2018 recruiting class, eight freshmen are listed on the two-deep.
Freshman safety Caden Sterns enrolled early and made the most of his time taking a starting spot on defense.
The freshmen offensive skill position players are in the best position to make an immediate impact. For running backs and wide receivers, the talent usually shines through rather quickly.
Running back Keontay Ingram, from Carthage, was the top running back in the state for the 2018 class. Ingram is in the upper-tier of Texas backs to start the season.
Freshmen wideouts D’shawn Jamison, Joshua Moore and Brennan Eagles will each get a chance to break through listed behind Collin Johnson and Lil’Jordan Humphrey.
