Isaiah Neyor and Xavier Worthy could be the top WR duo in the Big 12

This might fall into the bucket as an overreaction coming out of the first week of fall practice. But it doesn’t seem out of the realm of reality that Texas could boast the best wide receiver duo in the Big 12 in 2022 between star sophomore Xavier Worthy and the former Wyoming Cowboys redshirt sophomore transfer Isaiah Neyor.

All we’ve heard coming out of fall practice thus far is how effective this wide receiver duo of Neyor and Worthy can be. These are usually the first two names we hear about when talking about the standout Texas wideouts coming out of summer workouts and in the early phases of fall camp.

We continue to hear that Neyor is commonly winning battles on one-on-one drills in practice and seven-on-seven work. The 6-foot-3 and 215-pound outside receiver is going to be a load for opposing defenses to deal with at the z this season.

Another important aspect of the development of Neyor at the outset of fall camp is the apparent connection he’s formed with both Texas quarterbacks. His large catch-radius and ability to high point the football and bring down those tough contested balls on the outside will tremendously benefit either Card or Ewers this fall.

It goes without saying that Texas will have an insane starting trio of wide receivers this fall between Neyor, Worthy, and redshirt junior Jordan Whittington. If all three of these standout wide receivers can stay healthy throughout the 2022 season for the Longhorns, the sky appears to be the limit for this passing game.
