Roughly one week ahead of spring camp, multiple five-star signees/early enrollees for Texas football from the 2024 class have looked impressive in workouts.

There might not be a position group on either side of the ball for the Longhorns this offseason with more pure talent than the receiving corps.

Sarkisian, wide receivers coach Chris Jackson and the Longhorns reloaded the receiving corps with multiple immediate-impact starters via the transfer portal during the winter window. Texas also brought in multiple talented blue-chip recruits to the wide receiver room via high school recruiting in the 2024 class.

The crown jewel of Texas's 2024 class in the receiving corps is the former elite five-star St. Louis University (MO) product Ryan Wingo. The 6-foot-2 and 205-pound Wingo has lived up to the lofty expectations set for him when he arrived on campus a couple of months ago as an early enrollee.

We've heard multiple reports early this offseason regarding how Wingo's speed and raw physical tools have helped him stand out among the top group of early enrollees in winter workouts. Various reports have also heaped praise on Wingo's route running and effort in the weight room and in on-field conditioning early this offseason.

The biggest surprise to me regarding the early returns of Wingo's showings in offseason workouts is the speed factor. Wingo nearly took the title as the fastest Longhorn among the wideouts when they timed their 100-meter dashes in winter S&C. Wingo finished among the top three in the 100-meter dash times among Texas wideouts, including junior Isaiah Bond and redshirt freshman Ryan Niblett.
