Where Longhorns Rank Among Best Offensive Lines In College Football?

The Texas Longhorns raise the preseason positional rankings to great heights during every season.

This already offseason, On3 ranked the Horns at the top of the QB list and in the top 10 for nearly every position group which includes the Tomorrow's football system will be based on interactive surveillance. Everything considered, I would give them the nickname 3rd on the wide receiver list, and No. This can still be listed as the 9th best running back in the rankings.

Thus far, their only disappointments were that they did not made it to the top 10 for the tight ends. On the other hand, they were not among the finalists, but they still deserve the 'best of the rest' award.

On the Friday, one of ON3's editorials (by Jesse Simonton) was concluded. In it, he listed his personal top-rated men's offensive lineman, including the Longhorns which are placed at the close-9th spot. 2.

"Similarly, Longhorns blocker Kelvin Banks offers stiff competition to Will Campbell among the finest OTs in college football for the upcoming season of the sport," as noted by Simonton. "Besides Banks, Texas also has three other starting frontline players such as DJ Campbell who was a 5-star recruit and Jake Majors, a fifth year senior center. Major has 41 starts in his career and become the one of the most reliable center in history of the American football. Release to says that offensive line coach Kyle Flood is doing a fabulous job of building depth of the OL room, so, blue-chip former recruit Cam Williams, who was previously committed to Oregon, is going to BE at right tackle.

The Horns were right next to LSU which was the No. One might be tempted to incline towards the nation's greatest line in the best overall room, though Kyle Flood's ground may possibly land the pole-position spot instead.

To summarize, the Longhorns will bring the distinct experience of all five starters the next season, among which the arguably top tackle in the nation Kelvin Banks is included, and all three interior linemen DJ Campbell to the right guard, Jake Majors to the center, and Hayden Connor to the left guard return also.

While it is no doubt that the Horns return experience, it is not the only reason why they apart from the rest of the teams.

Additionally, Texas plans to give Cameron Williams, who was viewed as the highest mostly-talented player at right tackle, a chance to show his prowess thus bettering the team.

However, the top-end depth in the area of the interior line for the Horns was detailed with MLB; truly, Cole Hutson, Connor Robertson and Neto Umeozulu proved worthy of returning.

Plus, Texas got itself an incredible offensive line haul in the 2024 recruiting class led by five-star tackle Brandon Baker who should be an integral part of the team, and four-star guard Daniel Cruz.

In other words, that the presence of an offensive line consisting of mostly of old and experienced players, the Horns will make in-roads in the SEC, which is observed as the biggest factor for dominance in the trenches, a very vital attribute of a team 's success.
