Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian underwent two massive blows to the offensive unit last weekend in the form of a couple of season-ending injuries to projected starters at key positions. Those two key Texas starters that went down over the weekend, in the first scrimmage of fall camp, were senior interior offensive lineman Junior Angilau and redshirt sophomore wide receiver Isaiah Neyor.

One of those two Longhorns players that suffered season-ending injuries over the weekend did take to social media on Aug. 15 to send a message to the fans. Neyor posted a hopeful message on his Twitter timeline on the evening of Aug. 15, saying “thank y’all” and “I’ll be back”.

That could be hinting at a return for Neyor to the Longhorns for the 2023 season. And that seems like the most realistic path forward for Neyor to make his debut wearing the burnt orange next year. But that is mostly speculation at this point.

Texas football WR Isaiah Neyor sends message to fans on social media following injury


For the time being, it’s good to at least see Neyor posting a message like this to the Longhorns faithful after suffering such an unfortunate injury before even making his debut with this team.

Neyor suffered a non-contact ACL tear during the first scrimmage of fall camp for the Longhorns, which took place on Aug. 13. Both Neyor and Angilau suffered season-ending ACL injuries during that scrimmage, which were confirmed by Sark during his press conference on Aug. 15.

There were high hopes for Neyor as the projected starting z-wide receiver for Sark and the Longhorns this fall. Texas landed a commitment from Neyor via the NCAA Transfer Portal earlier in the offseason.

Texas finished up last season with a record of 5-7 (3-6 Big 12), missing out on bowl season for the first time since 2016. Sark and the Longhorns are set to open up the 2022 regular season at home on Sep. 3 against the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.
