Pro Football Network Place Longhorns 23rd in Way-Too-Early Top 25

Texas is ranked 23 on the Pro Football Network Way-Too-Early Top 25. This is in large part due to the job Sarkisian’s staff has done both on the recruiting trail and in the transfer portal since the conclusion of his first season.

In the time since the 2021 season ended, Sarkisian and his staff have added cornerback Ryan Watts from Ohio State to fill a hole vacated by former Longhorn Josh Thompson. They have added tight end, Jahleel Billingsley, from Alabama, a talented player who shined in Sarkisian’s offense during Alabama’s 2020 national championship run.
