  09/17/20 - DeMarvion OvershownJr/2022, Texas, 6-2, 217 (DS#999 OLB) + More +

  Saturday marked 714 days since Joshua Moore last took the field for the Texas Longhorns and 435 days since Moore was arrested in downtown Austin for carrying a loaded gun without a license, prompting a season-long suspension that kept Moore off the field in 2019. Moore only needed one play to spectacularly mark his return to Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, catching a pass on the first play from scrimmage for the Longhorns and racing 78 yards for the touchdown. In an interview with the media on Tuesday, Moore admitted that he didn't necessarily expect to make a play that quickly, but he did have confidence in himself to make an impact during his first game for the Longhorns in nearly two years. "I know what I bring to the table," Moore said. "I kind of figured, I haven't played for a year and a half, Saturday was my first game back, and just me being who I am, the competitor that I am, I knew I would make a big break at some point in the game. It didn't surprise me that it was the first play of the game. I knew, like I said, I was going to have some success during the game."

Moore did indeed have some success, even after the opening play, leading the team with six receptions for 127 yards on seven recorded targets. There was some room for improvement, as Moore wasn't on the same page as senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger on one play, breaking off a route that Ehlinger expected him to continue deep, dropped a difficult, contested catch, and missed a block when he was lined up as the single receiver. Still, Moore was able to provide the best evidence yet of his explosiveness since he arrived at Texas. - Burnt Orange Nation

  09/15/20 - B.J. FosterJr/2022, Texas, 6-1, 195 (DS#999 SS) + More +

  Texas safety B.J. Foster "obviously let his frustration get the best of him" by leaving the team Saturday night but will remain with the Longhorns, coach Tom Herman said Monday. Foster was apparently upset over a lack of playing time during UT's 59-3 blowout over UTEP. He left the stadium sometime during the second half, and it was thought he was going to quit the team. But Foster returned to the football offices on Sunday and spoke with coaches. Herman said that Foster will "serve his penance" internally and then the whole issue will be "water under the bridge." "It's OK to be frustrated," Herman said. "But we've got to be able to control our actions, and he realizes that." Foster, a junior from Angleton, was expected to be a key contributor all season long. He was listed second on the depth chart for the season opener behind senior Chris Brown. - Austin American Statesman

  09/15/20 - Jordan WhittingtonrFr/2024, Texas, 6-0, 209 (DS#999 WR) + More +

  Texas football has remained COVID-free these last few weeks, but now the ninth-ranked Longhorns are dealing with normal football-related injuries after the season-opening win over UTEP. Receiver Jordan Whittington will be out 3-4 weeks with a "small tear of his lateral meniscus," UT coach Tom Herman said Monday. Groin problems ruined Whittington's freshman season. With this injury, he'll be on the shelf possibly through the Oklahoma game on Oct. 10. "He'll have surgery here in the next couple of days," Herman said. "Nothing to repair, we don't think, so just a snip and clean out. I'm being told 3-4 weeks, so plan to have him back for most of conference play. So that was good news." - Austin American Statesman

  09/15/20 - Sam EhlingerSr/2021, Texas, 6-2, 225 (DS#3 QB) + More +

  In a 59-3 beating of over UTEP on Saturday night, Ehlinger threw for 426 yards and five touchdowns. Ehlinger completed 25 of his 33 attempts. He played only one series in the second half. Ehlinger's 426 passing yards are the third-most in UT's history. Ehlinger and Texas Tech's Alan Bowman, who had 430 yards and two touchdowns in a 35-33 win over Houston Baptist, were the only Big 12 quarterbacks who topped 300 passing yards in their first games. In his postgame press conference, Ehlinger said he was actually "disappointed" with how he played against the Miners. Ehlinger noted that he missed on a couple of opportunities to put more points on the scoreboard. On the two first-half drives that Texas attempted field goals on, Ehlinger was unable to connect with receivers Tarik Black and Brennan Eagles on passes into the end zone.

During his weekly media availability on Monday, Texas coach Tom Herman was asked about Ehlinger's self-evaluation. Herman was pleased with Ehlinger's performance, but understood those comments. "Anytime you throw for 424 yards in a half and five touchdowns, that's a pretty good day at the office," Herman said. "There was a few (throws), I could see why he said what he said...Those were only a couple compared to the numerous really good reads and great throws that he made." - Austin American Statesman

  The third-year sophomore was targeted a team-high seven times and had six catches for 127 yards and the long 78-yard touchdown. Moore didn't exactly come out of nowhere, but he had played in only six career games in two years; he redshirted in 2019 after after missing all but six games of 2018 with an injury. He and Michigan graduate transfer Tarik Black (5-80-1) combined for 13 targets. That's Devin Duvernay-type of attention. - Austin American Statesman

  SEPT 14 BIG 12 OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Sam Ehlinger, QB, Sr., Texas,...A record-setting performance for Ehlinger included 424 passing yards and five touchdowns in the first half against UTEP to set Longhorn single-half records. He finished 25-for-33 with career-highs of 426 yards and five touchdowns through the air. That marks the third-most prolific passing game, in terms of yardage, in school history, and is tied for the second-most passing touchdowns in a single game on UT record. On Sunday, Ehlinger was tabbed the Walter Camp Football Foundation National Offensive Player of the Week. - Big 12 Football

  Sam Ehlinger threw a 78-yard touchdown to Joshua Moore on the first play and had career-high five scoring passes in the first half, as No. 14 Texas rolled to a 59-3 season-opening win over UTEP Saturday night. Ehlinger finished with 426 yards. He left the game midway through the third quarter with Colt McCoy's single-game records for yards (470) and touchdowns (six) easily within reach if he'd stayed on the field. Moore's first touchdown since 2018 came on an inside route when he burst past one diving defender and outran two more with an easy path to the end zone. Ehlinger's final touchdown pass came on a 6-yard toss to walk-on Kai Money in the final seconds of the first half.

Texas' original schedule had the Longhorns visiting defending national champion LSU this weekend, in a rematch of a 2019 classic. But that game was scrapped as the Big 12 and Southeastern Conference retooled their schedules amid the coronavirus pandemic. With social distancing rules and limits in place, Texas announced a crowd of 15,337 at a stadium that typically holds close to 100,000. The school required students using a special student season ticket package to pass a rapid COVID-19 test on Friday before they could go to the game. The school paid for the tests and reported 95 positives out of 1,198 administered. No other ticket holders were required to be tested. - AP College/Texas Football

  09/11/20 - Samuel CosmirJr/2022, Texas, 6-6, 309 (DS#1 OT) + More +

  For Samuel Cosmi, the decision to play this fall was made in January. Eight months ago, the Texas left tackle took to Twitter to announce that he'd return to for his redshirt junior season. He tweeted that it was a dream for both him and his family to earn a degree. He also wanted to chase a championship with his teammates. Cosmi hasn't wavered in his decision. Not even during a pandemic. When asked on Tuesday if he had thought about focusing on the NFL draft instead of a college season that has plenty of unknown variables, he replied, "I haven't thought any of opting out."

"I'm all in right now," he added. "I still see myself as the kid walking on campus and trying to get a spot and figure out what am I going to do and how am I going to get on the field. I still have that mentality. None of this has really hit me. I'm here to play football." Had Cosmi had a change of heart, he wouldn't have been alone. A few players that will likely be chosen early in the 2021 draft won't be playing this fall. - Austin American Statesman

  09/10/20 - Tarik BlackSr/2021, Texas, 6-2, 217 (DS#38 WR) + More +

  Former Michigan receiver Tarik Black was a late arrival to campus, but apparently had enough time to make a splash at Texas. Black, who transferred to Austin over the summer after graduating from Michigan, was named a starting wideout for the Longhorns' season opener on Saturday against the University of Texas, El Paso (8 p.m., ET, Longhorn Network). Texas unveiled its weekly depth chart on Monday, with the 6-foot-3, 217-pound Black listed as the No. 1 "X" receiver. He reportedly beat out junior Brennan Eagles, who started seven games last season for Texas, for the spot. "He has assimilated very well," Texas head coach Tom Herman told The Houston Chronicle last week. "The team has embraced him because of his work ethic and his contribution to the team, and the offense in particular. "Guy is very selfless. You know, he wants to be on all the special (teams) units, volunteering to do that."

The Longhorns expect to utilize a three-receiver set for senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger, who threw for 3,663 yards and 32 touchdowns (with 10 interceptions) and earned honorable mention all-Big 12 honors in 2019. Black, a Hamden, Conn., native, is the most experienced of the wideout group, starting alongside sophomores Jake Smith and Joshua Moore (redshirt). He played in 21 games from 2017 to 2019, starting nine of them, but was hampered by foot injuries during his first two seasons. Black's most productive season came last fall, when he played in 12 games and caught 25 passes for 323 yards and a touchdown. - Ann Arbor News

  Graduate transfer Tarik Black is officially the starter over junior Brennan Eagles after a disappointing camp for Eagles, the team's leading returning receiver. Throughout the offseason, the expectation was that Eagles would take a big leap this season, but that's now in question as he starts the season as a backup. Black has been impressive in his own right, however. - Burnt Orange Nation

  09/08/20 - Gabriel WatsonrSr/2021, Texas, 5-11, 219 (DS#59 RB) + More +

  With its 2020 football season set to start this weekend, Texas has added two new names to its roster. Running back Gabriel Watson and receiver Brenden Schooler have officially joined the Longhorns as graduate transfers. The additions of Watson and Schooler were previously reported, but Texas had not acknowledged their arrivals. Watson will wear No. 25 this season. The No. 81 jersey has been assigned to Schooler. According to Texas coach Tom Herman, both Watson and Schooler will be available for the Longhorns' opener against UTEP on Saturday. Herman said that Schooler was recently cleared to practice and has been running with the second-string offense. Herman added that Watson added depth and a different skill set to his room of running backs. "In a year like this you can never have too much depth," Herman said. "Those guys are veteran guys that will add a lot of value to their respective rooms." - Austin American Statesman

  08/30/20 - Bijan RobinsonFr/2024, Texas, 6-0, 220 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  Mesquite Poteet linebacker Malik Jefferson was the most-hyped recruit UT signed on Charlie Strong's watch. Robinson earns that distinction thus far for Tom Herman. The running back from Tucson, Ariz., was a high school All-American and two-time state player of the year. He also set a new state rushing record with 7,036 yards. The five-star prospect was the No. 1-ranked running back recruit in the country, according to 247Sports' composite ratings. He's not likely to be the opening-game starter against UTEP. He may not even be second in the rotation. All freshmen must earn their spot through practice, and in Herman's world, everyone must protect the football at all costs. Other recent freshmen have come in with great fanfare. Injuries slowed Jordan Whittington. Jake Smith had to wait his turn. But Robinson is someone that fans will get to know soon. He's simply too electric. - Austin American Statesman

  08/30/20 - Brenden SchoolerrSr/2021, Texas, 6-2, 196 (DS#90 WR) + More +

  Texas continues to work the grad transfer market and expects to add a Pac-12 castoff in receiver Brenden Schooler, a source familiar with the situation told the American-Statesman. Schooler spent most of his career at Oregon, piling up 43 catches for 521 yards and four touchdowns from 2016-19. He transferred to Arizona for the 2020 season but the league canceled football over coronavirus fears. Horns247 first reported the transfer, although it's still unclear when Schooler will join the team and whether he'll play in the season opener against UTEP. Graduate transfers are eligible immediately. Texas coaches have felt the receiver group needed more depth. UT signed Michigan grad transfer Tarik Black during the offseason. Now, they're adding another one in Schooler. - Austin American Statesman
