Another underrated recruit in the Longhorns 2023 class that arrived on campus for the summer semester is the former high-three-star offensive tackle out of Melissa High School, Trevor Goosby. The 6-foot-7 and 280-pound true freshman offensive tackle Goosby was one of the signees in the 2023 class for offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the Longhorns with some real long-term upside.

But it appears that some of that upside is being displayed early in summer workouts for Goosby. Some of the work Goosby put in to get his body right before he arrived on campus this summer is catching the staff’s attention.

Nahlin of Inside Texas reported (paid content) that Goosby’s “readiness upon arrival” was evident in the early stages of summer workouts. We’ve heard that Goosby has looked like one of the most impressive true freshman offensive linemen a few weeks into the summer strength and conditioning program.

Moreover, while I don’t necessarily think that Goosby getting off to a strong start in summer workouts will put him in a spot to get a spot on the two-deep this fall, it can help him get a jump start in his development track.

A strong start to summer workouts can also help Goosby make up some ground that he lost compared to the other 2023 signees that enrolled early to participate in spring ball. We all know how much Sark and the Longhorns staff like their spring enrollees among the true freshmen.

If Goosby can continue to look the part of one of the most physically-impressive true freshman offensive linemen for the rest of the summer workout program, he should be able to push the likes of Andre Cojoe, Jaydon Chatman, and Payton Kirkland for positioning on the depth chart this fall.
