Running back

Starter: Bijan Robinson

Backup: Roschon Johnson

As one of the few position groups on either side of the ball for the Longhorns that won’t have really any shake-ups since the conclusion of spring ball, running back is still a real strength for this team. In fact, the running back room might be deeper and more talented than any other position on either side of the ball for the Longhorns at this point of the offseason.

The wide receiver room might try and argue that, though, especially after some of their portal additions this offseason.

Moreover, the key cog in this offense this coming season is definitely going to be the junior star running back Bijan Robinson. As the player with by far the most Heisman hype for Texas this year, Bijan will be the spark that Sark leans on this fall to get the offense going week in and week out.

Behind Bijan on the running back depth chart will almost certainly be the rising senior and former converted quarterback Roschon Johnson. In fact, if it were up to me, I would say that Roschon should get even more touches this season compared to last fall.

Good things tend to happen when Roschon gets the ball 10 or 12 times per game. And there are so many ways in which Roschon can make a positive impact on this offense whether it be as a blocker, receiver, or rusher.

We should also mention the other talented backs that Texas will feature in this loaded backfield this coming season. Rising redshirt junior Keilan Robinson, sophomore Jonathon Brooks, and freshman Jaydon Blue will highlight the other backs for the Longhorns that should see the field often this fall.
