Chemistry with receiving corps still a work in progress

Texas's receivers had some really nice plays for both teams in the spring game. Sophomore wide receiver Johntay Cook II, true freshman Ryan Wingo, Moore, and Bond each had respective highlight-reel catches throughout the Orange-White Game.

The talent and depth in the receiving corps were on display as Owens and Manning both had big connections to multiple different receivers, adding up to five passing touchdowns.

Wingo, Bond, and Moore each had 50+ yard deep ball touchdown catches. Cook, along with tight ends Amari Niblack and Jordan Washington, also came up with some nice contested catches on the day.

There were also some big plays left on the table for the Longhorns on offense in the spring game. A combination of catchable balls either dropped or falling to the ground haulted what could've been a spring game that saw 80+ points scored from both offenses.

Bond had a handful of catchable passes that he wasn't able to come up with. It was also a pretty quiet day for Texas's other highly touted transfer wide receiver in the spring game, former Houston Cougars junior Matthew Golden.

Chemistry with the receiving corps was a big point of discussion from various practice and scrimmage reports late in spring ball. Ewers and Manning must continue to improve their timing and consistency with all these new transfer receivers and new projected starters in the receiving corps entering preseason camp.
