Spring camp wrapped up for head coach Steve Sarkisian and Texas football with the annual Orange-White spring football game at DKR on April 20. Texas had a good crowd on hand while the weather held up at DKR in Austin to get some sort of live-game action in front of the fans for the first time since last fall.

Expectations are high for Sarkisian and the Longhorns entering the first year of competition in the SEC for the 2024 season. Texas is coming off a Big 12 Championship and the program's first ever appearance in the College Football Playoff last season.

Sarkisian has stated multiple times over that the squad he has this year is the deepest he's had in his four years at Texas. The depth and talent is abundant on both sides of the ball for the Longhorns this spring camp.

Much of that talent was put on display, outside of a handful of upperclassmen who were held out of the action, at DKR for the spring game this weekend.

Here are three Longhorns players that shined in the Orange-White Game on April 20.

Trey Owens, QB

Many of the quarterback reps in the spring game went to true freshman Trey Owens with Team Orange. Owens went toe-to-toe with redshirt freshman quarterback Arch Manning and held his own for much of this spring game, including a couple of touchdown passes in the first half alone.

Owens looked very composed in the pocket and made some nice throws with his feet planted and on the run when the pocket collapsed in this spring game.

The first touchdown throw for Owens in the spring game was a nice 50-yard connection to senior walk-on wide receiver Thatcher Milton. The score was originally negated for a penatly, but Sarkisian negated the negation to let the touchdown stand.

The biggest highlight of the day from Owens was a nice deep ball connection with true freshman wide receiver Ryan Wingo for his second touchdown of the day. Owens found Wingo with a pinpoint deep ball in stride to let the talented early enrollee get his first career score in a Texas spring game.
