Texas football fans witnessed one of the most exciting spring games we've seen at DKR in recent memory during the Orange-White Game on April 20. Texas quarterbacks stole the show amid an outburst of scoring that saw the two teams tally up nearly 70 total points.

At the conclusion of spring practice, head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns looked to be in pretty good shape regarding depth and talent, especially on the offensive side of the ball. However, some concerns remained during the spring game this weekend, given that the defense let up over 550 passing yards between the two units.

Entering the spring game, Sarkisian said that this is essentially the best he's felt about his team in any offseason in his four years at Texas. This team goes three or four deep at most position groups on each side of the ball. And the staff still has the spring portal window to try and address any additional positional needs before preseason camp.

It was redshirt freshman quarterback Arch Manning who dominated the headlines this weekend, with over 300 passing yards, three touchdowns, and no picks in the Orange-White Game on April 20. While redshirt junior quarterback Quinn Ewers was sidelined for most of the spring game, Arch took advantage of the extra reps on offense.

Here are three overreactions after the Longhorns' spring game on April 20.

Ryan Wingo will be a top 3 wideout for Texas this season

The brightest star of all the Texas wideouts in yesterday's spring game was true freshman Ryan Wingo. The former elite five-star recruit from St. Louis, MO, had a tremendous performance during the spring game, including a game-high two touchdown catches.

Wingo got going early in the spring game, with an impressive deep touchdown catch from true freshman quarterback Trey Owens in the first half. Wingo generated good separation and Owens hit him in stride for the deep touchdown play.

The second of two touchdowns on the day for Wingo was the game-winning score in the final minute of the fourth quarter. Wingo got open with a route to the corner of the end zone where he made a nice over the shoulder catch from Owens.

Regarding his yards after the catch ability, separation, and reliable hands, Wingo proved he belongs with the top group of four or five wideouts for Sarkisian and the Longhorns after spring ball.
