The spring tradition happened a little late with the cancelation of practice, but it’s finally here nonetheless.

Instead of preparing for the Orange-White game and going through spring practice, Texas Longhorns early enrollees from the 2020 class are currently at home weathering the coronavirus pandemic with their families, but the school did release jersey numbers and recent weights for those players over the weekend when the roster was updated.

Here’s a look at those updates:

  • No. 1 — Quarterback Hudson Card. The Lake Travis product is currently listed at 183 pounds, which is two pounds lighter than he was listed when he signed back in December. Since Card has the thinnest frame of any Longhorns quarterback since Case McCoy, getting stronger and adding some mass is a big priority for him in the offseason, so hopefully he has a home setup conducive to those goals.
  • No. 23 — Safety Xavion Alford. Listed at 182 pounds, Alford is two pounds lighter than his listed weight from December. He’s coming back from a knee injury that cost him most of his senior season, so ensuring that he’s fully healed from that is the biggest immediate priority before he competes for special teams reps this fall.
  • No. 28 — safety Jerrin Thompson. The Lufkin product is still listed at 180 pounds, so consider him below that weight as he works to add mass to his frame.
  • No. 48 — defensive end Vernon Broughton. Head coach Tom Herman mentioned Broughton as a player who will benefit from playing on the edges, but he’s also listed at 295 pounds, up 10 pounds from when he signed in December. So unless he loses some weight this summer, it’s hard to see him remaining outside.
  • No. 71 — offensive guard Logan Parr. Listed at 278 pounds when he signed in December, Parr is now up to 294 pounds, so he’s quickly getting closer to his eventual playing weight.
  • No. 73 — offensive center Jake Majors. Like Parr, Majors gained significant weight during winter conditioning, going from 284 pounds to 313 pounds.
  • No. 82 — wide receiver Troy Omeire. When Omeire signed in December, he was listed at 202 pounds, but is now up to 211 pounds.
  • No. 91 — defensive tackle Sawyer Goram-Welch. The Longview product is listed at 297 pounds, up 12 pounds from December.

Among the notable position changes from the spring, junior linebacker DeMarvion Overshown is listed at 215 pounds, five pounds heavier than his listed weight from last season when he was at safety. Texas also provided further confirmation of other position changes, including junior Reese Leitao from tight end to defensive line. Sophomore Tyler Owens remains at safety at 210 pounds.

With the move to a four-man front, senior defensive end Jacoby Jones has dropped 10 pounds down to 265. Redshirt freshman defensive lineman Myron Warren is up 20 pounds to 290, so consider him officially an inside player moving forward. Sophomore nose tackle T’Vondre Sweat continues to gain weight — he’s up to 335 pounds from 320 pounds last season. Sophomore Jack linebacker Byron Vaughns is listed at 225 pounds, 20 pounds lighter than last season. Sophomore linebacker Ayodele Adeoye is down five pounds to 245 pounds, likely in an effort to improve his range from sideline to sideline. After missing the regular season last year, sophomore offensive tackle Reese Moore is listed at 285 pounds, down from 295 pounds in 2019. At the Spur position, the term for the nickel back in Chris Ash’s defense, sophomore Chris Adimora is up from 185 pounds last season to 212 pounds now.

In a promising development, redshirt freshman wide receiver Kennedy Lewis is still listed on the roster despite his suspension in February.

Texas has also added several walk-on players to the roster — freshman kicker Zach Lidner and freshman kicker/punter Logan Smith — to improve depth after the loss of backup Chris Naggar, who opted to become a graduate transfer.
