At this point of fall camp, it’s becoming more and more clear that the most potent tight end in this position room is the former elite five-star recruit and sophomore Ja’Tavion Sanders. This Denton-Ryan High School product continues to impress in fall camp, and he apparently looked like one of the most dominant players in the second fall scrimmage this weekend.

It’s not only the threat that Sanders poses in the passing game that makes him such a potent tight end for Sark and the Longhorns. He also shows that he can thrive as a blocking tight end when necessary.

It sounds like Sanders made an impression on the staff in terms of the ability he showed in the blocking game in this scrimmage. He and sophomore tight end Gunnar Helm apparently remained the two best blockers at the position this weekend.

Yet, all we hear regarding Sanders’ performance in fall camp thus far is how stellar he looks in almost every phase of the game. To put the cherry on top of Sanders’ performance in the second scrimmage of fall camp, he apparently had a nice touchdown catch on a good ball from Ewers.

Sanders is heading into the 2022 season with the potential to become not just one of the best tight ends in the Big 12, but one of the most impressive in the entire country.
