5:04 p.m.: Sark and the Longhorns actually do wind up releasing a depth chart for the opener against the Warhawks. That comes after he declined to release a depth chart earlier this week following his first media availability ahead of Week 1.

A few surprises were delivered on this, including true freshman defensive back Jaylon Guilbeau being listed as the starter at spur along with junior Jahdae Barron. We also didn’t see a single true starter along the defensive line. Every single one of those players in the two-deep were listed with an OR next to their name.

And despite him dressing out for this game, redshirt freshman wide receiver Agiye Hall was not listed on the two-deep.
