Athlon Sports previews Texas’ offense for 2022

Texas’ Bijan Robinson tops PFF’s 2023 RB big board

Texas has no shortage of weapons on the offensive side of the ball.

Opposing teams will essentially have to pick their poison when attempting to slow down Steve Sarkisian’s offense throughout the 2022 college football season.

The best running back in college football, Bijan Robinson, is entering his junior season and freshman All-American wide receiver Xavier Worthy leads a revamped wide receiver room.

The Longhorns brought in several immediate impact players via the transfer portal on the offensive side of the ball as well. Isaiah Neyor, Jahleel Billingsley, Quinn Ewers and Agiye Hall are expected to receive significant playing time.

Athlon Sports recently previewed Texas’ offense for 2022, and it’s sure to make Longhorn fans excited.

Quarterback competition

The offense was the strength of the team last season but will have a new starting quarterback after Casey Thompson, who started 10 games in 2021 and led the Big 12 in TD passes (24), transferred to Nebraska.

Sarkisian will now decide between Ewers and redshirt sophomore Hudson Card. Card started the first two games in 2021, completing 61.4 percent of his passes with five touchdowns and one interception, but he lacked pocket presence before being replaced by Thompson. Ewers is UT’s highest-rated recruit since Vince Young (in 2002) but hasn’t started a football game since he helped Southlake Carroll reach the 2020 Texas 6A state championship. Ewers graduated early from high school, reclassified and enrolled at Ohio State in the fall of 2021, taking two regular-season snaps — both handoffs. Athlon Sports
