Ryan Wingo showing his playmaking and versatility

Speaking of Texas wide receivers who have stood out early this spring, true freshman early enrollee Ryan Wingo has really looked the part in the last couple of weeks. Wingo has been the most impressive of the freshmen wide receivers for the Longhorns this spring.

It took almost no time at all for Wingo to establish himself among the top four or five wideouts in the rotation in receiver and team drills this spring. He's often been running with the first and second teams on the boundary at receiver in the first half-dozen spring practices.

Wingo specifically made a nice play where he reportedly scored a touchdown on a reverse run play. He apparently made some defenders miss in the open field and scored diving to the pylon in the end zone.

The fact that Sarkisian and the Longhorns are already finding creative ways to get Wingo the ball in simulated live-game action and team drills in practice is a good sign of how mature his game is already. Inside Texas reported on March 30 (paid content) that Wingo is "ahead of the curve athletically and mentally".

There's no doubt in my mind that Wingo will be one of the top early contributors to watch among this highly touted group of early enrollees who signed with the Longhorns in a 2024 class that ranked in the top five nationally in the 247Sports Composite.
