Longhorns Daily News: Texas named among nation’s top two WR groups, behind Ohio State

Plus: A record-setting weekend for Texas baseball

Syndication: USA TODAY Aaron E. Martinez / USA TODAY NETWORK

The Texas Longhorns wide receiver room is getting an exceptional amount of buzz this offseason. To be expected, with third-year returning players like Xavier Worthy and top true freshmen recruits like Johntay Cook in the lineup. In fact, On3 recently described Texas’ wide receiver room as the nation’s second-best, behind the Ohio State Buckeyes, but ahead of the LSU Tigers.

From On3: “If not for Ohio State, the Longhorns would have the best receiver corps in 2023, with a dynamic trio in Xavier Worthy, AD Mitchell and Jordan Whittington. Worthy is a future 1st Round pick, while Mitchell, who transferred from Georgia this offseason, has similar upside and has been a key playmaker for the Bulldogs in multiple College Football Playoff games. Whittington isn’t flashy but the veteran is a reliable target who can play multiple spots. Texas also has the luxury of backups like Isaiah Neyor, who was a big-time transfer addition last year but tore his ACL in fall camp, and 5-star freshman Johntay Cook II — both of whom would start for most schools.”
