There’s not much better that Texas football can do on the transfer market this off-season than acquiring some help for the offensive line. Texas is about to lose four departing seniors that were key starters along the offensive line. This line does have some talent returning for 2019, but the turnover will be a detriment to some degree.
Bringing in the former Rice Owls offensive tackle Calvin Anderson to plug the hole on the line left by former All-American Connor Williams last season was huge for the fortunes of the entire offense. Anderson got some huge pushes for the Horns for the ground game and helped the pocket hold up longer for the passing game to develop.
However, what the former Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets All-ACC offensive guard Parker Braun could bring for the Texas offensive line might be the best out of any transfer linemen it ever had. Braun is a stout offensive lineman that can set the edge and get a big push to help the ground game.
At 6-foot-3 and 280 pounds, Braun does have good size that he could bring to the Forty Acres and make an instant impact for the offensive line. What’s good for Texas offensive line coach Herb Hand is that Braun might already have some interest in coming to Austin. Braun is reportedly considering a visit to Texas soon.
