Jordan Washington has earned more early reps

The future looks very bright in the entire receiving corps for the Longhorns on this year's team. Between the talented true freshmen wideouts, including Wingo and the speedy Aaron Butler, and the ever-improving tight end room, the Longhorns are in a good spot entering the SEC this upcoming season regarding its skill talent.

Wingo was the star highlighting the young depth and talent in Texas's receiving corps at wideout in the spring game this weekend. At tight end, we saw why there has been much hype regarding the receiving threat that true freshman early enrollee Jordan Washington poses to opposing linebackers and safeties in coverage.

Washington had a couple of nice catches during the spring game, including one in the second half where he jumped a few feet in the air to come down with the football for a first down.

Not only did Washington show great hands and good body control, but he also ran clean routes and showed the ability to get separation running down the seems and in intermediate routes.

I still think Washington has some strides he needs to make as a blocker and to get a bit stronger to handle the contact in the SEC week in and week out, but he definitely flashed a bright future ahead with his potential this spring. He's the future for the Longhorns at receiving tight end.
