With the National Letter of Intent in from consensus five-star running back Bijan Robinson, the 16 commits for the Texas Longhorns are all officially in the fold on Early Signing Day, so it’s worth taking a look at the overall scholarship distribution for head coach Tom Herman’s program heading into next season.

*Denotes players on track to redshirt this season

With the medical retirement of linebacker De’Gabriel Floyd, the graduate transfer of offensive lineman JP Urquidez, and the removal of the seniors, Texas is currently sitting at 81 scholarships for next season.

Expect the normal level of attrition during the offseason — probably between four and six players — and note that there are a handful of walk ons who might or might not remain on scholarship this year. In all likelihood, Texas won’t need those scholarships next fall and committed to keeping those players on scholarship for multiple years.
