While Georgia boasts a very skilled receiving corps that could do some damage to the Texas secondary, the other group of wideouts might be the most talented. Texas has a receiving corps that is one of the best in the Big 12, if not one of the top 10 best in the nation. You could also argue that the top two wideouts for the Horns are the best duo in the nation.
Since the top two wide receivers for the Horns had such a good 2018 campaign, both of them could declare for the 2019 NFL Draft one year early. Texas would love to have both of them back in the mix next year, but the likelihood is that at least one of them will depart the Forty Acres one year early.
We’ll focus on the first of the two standout junior wide receivers for the Horns Lil’Jordan Humphrey. Everything in the passing game this year could be sparked by the efforts of Humphrey from a multitude of different looks. Humphrey gave sophomore Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger an outlet to make something happen on pretty much any play.
On the season, Humphrey has 79 catches for 1,109 yards and nine touchdowns. He also has one passing touchdown and one rushing touchdown on the season. Humphrey is piecing together a magical junior campaign that could see him off as an early round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft. He does need to finish off the year the right way with a good outing in the Sugar Bowl.
