Left guard

Starter: Junior Angilau

Backup: Cole Hutson

There is some movement to our projections along the interior offensive line heading into fall camp compared to our two-deep depth chart in this spot back in the spring and early in the summer.

Yet, that won’t impact our projected starter at the left guard position for the Longhorns heading into the fall. It’s hard to see a situation where the Longhorns won’t be starting senior Junior Angilau at one of the offensive guard spots this fall. Angilau is the most proven and experienced offensive linemen returning for Texas in 2022 and he’s going to anchor this spot in the trenches.

Backing up Angilau will likely be one of the incoming freshmen from the 2022 recruiting class. There’s a multitude of options that offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood could choose to backup Angilau, but freshman Cole Hutson makes sense here.


Starter: Jake Majors

Backup: Logan Parr

The only spot along the interior offensive line that hasn’t changed in our projections since the start of spring ball is at center. Texas is still going to have sophomore Jake Majors starting at the center position this fall. Majors steadily improved down the stretch last season as he got more and more accustomed to taking starting reps at this spot.

Backing up Majors at center should be redshirt freshman Logan Parr. Unless Flood and the Longhorns work on crosstraining some of the other backup linemen in the mix this fall, Parr makes the most sense as a natural fit at center out of the gates.

Freshman Conner Robertson will be another candidate to make it on the two-deep at center by the start of Big 12 play.

Right guard

Starter: Hayden Conner

Backup: Devon Campbell

This one could change in a hurry depending on how the Longhorns shape the offensive line for Week 1 against Louisiana-Monroe. There is a case to be made for sophomore Hayden Conner to get reps at just about every position, outside of center, along the offensive line heading into fall camp.

Conner could wind up being one of the true x-factors that impact how the rest of the offensive line is laid out this fall. If Flood and the Longhorns roll with Conner at right guard, then it’s hard to see where the former five-star recruit and talented freshman Devon Campbell can fit into the picture as a starter along the interior offensive line in the opener.

To keep it simple for now, Conner could be the safe option that rose to the occasion for the Longhorns down the stretch last season. If there are any injuries or necessary adjustments that must be made a few weeks into the regular season, that’s where we could start to see Campbell getting more starting reps if Conner has to cover another spot along the line.
