With the Texas Longhorns starting preseason camp on Friday, the school released the 2021 football roster.

Some notes on new numbers and notable weights as skill position players largely lost weight and offensive linemen gained weight during the first offseason under strength and conditioning coach Torre Becton.

  • After suffering a shoulder injury during the offseason, senior linebacker DeMarvion Overshown was limited in how much weight he could gain, eventually adding six pounds over last season’s roster to reach 223 pounds.
  • Junior nickel back Chris Adimora is down 10 pounds after playing at 214 last season.
  • Junior running back Roschon Johnson lost eight pounds and will start preseason camp at 219.
  • Freshman Ja’Tavion Sanders is listed solely as a tight end and will wear No. 3 this season. He’s at 6’4, 256 pounds, up about 20 pounds from his last listed weight on 247Sports. Since new head coach Steve Sarkisian took over, he’s said that Sanders will get some time on defense before the staff settles on a permanent position.
  • Sophomore running back Bijan Robinson is down eight pounds from last season to 214.
  • Senior transfer Ben Davis is listed at the edge position — there was some discussion about whether he would play inside linebacker. He’s listed at 6’4, 236 pounds and will wear No. 6. Alabama listed Davis at 250 pounds for the 2020 season. He’ll be limited to start preseason camp after an injury during the offseason.
