We are exactly 2 weeks away (as I write this) from opening day in DKR Memorial. So I’ve decided it is time to jump into the prediction part of the offseason. Today we’ll be looking at potential breakout players on the Offensive side of the ball.
Worthy is a speedy WR that transferred in from Michigan. He is only a True Freshman, but from all reports coming out of camp he is tearing it up. Worthy has the speed that Sark loves to utilizes in the passing game. For example look at Jaylen Waddle before injury and DeVonta Smith (2020 Heisman trophy winner). Those are both prime examples of how Sark will use Worthy’s elite speed.
This one might seem obvious, but we were never able to see Bijan play at his full potential because of how Tom Herman rotated his running backs. Every Texas fan I know is expecting Bijan to build on how he finished last season. Some are even putting his name up for Heisman contention. I won’t go that far just yet, but I also wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up in NYC at the end of the year.
Tight end Room
Cade Brewer and Jared Wiley should feast in Sark’s offense. Not to mention there is also Ja’Tavion Sanders, Juan Davis, Gunnar Helm, and Brayden Liebrock in this room. This position group has the potential to be outstanding. I think Brewer and Wiley will take the biggest steps forward here, but when you also look at the other guys it lets me know that Texas is set at the TE position for quite sometime.
Jake is a major (no pun intended) piece of this offensive line at the center position. As only a Freshman Jake came in after Derek Kerstetter suffered a season ending injury against K-State. He not only was adequate, but was dominant filling in. Expect Majors to have a massive season leading the Texas Offensive line group.
