Only a few weeks remain for Texas football before the start of preseason camp. It's also worth noting that the start of the 2024 regular season is only two months away.

Texas football underclassmen showing off their talent and progress this summer in workouts

Time is winding down for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns before the start of the highly anticipated inaugural campaign in the SEC in 2024. Texas has a very talented squad entering the SEC for the 2024 season, expected to be a contender for the conference title and for the expanded 12-team College Football Playoff.

Before the season begins, the Longhorns have a couple more months for the players to get their bodies right and in shape during the summer strength and conditioning program and preseason camp. Texas is well now the halfway mark of summer workouts at this point of the offseason in early July.

The Longhorns have already welcomed all new enrollees for the summer and spring semesters into the program and on campus. With just a few weeks remaining for summer S&C, we've heard a lot about the progress that underclassmen have made on both sides of the ball in the weight room and the practice field.

Here are three underclassmen for the Longhorns who have made rapid progress and impressed the coaches during summer workouts.

Trevor Goosby, OT

Among the most promising young offensive linemen Kyle Flood and the Longhorns have in the fold this summer is redshirt freshman offensive tackle Trevor Goosby. The big 6-foot-7 and 315-pound lineman from Melissa, TX, has made tremendous progress with his fundamentals on the practice field and getting his body right in offseason workouts this year.

We heard during the spring that Goosby was one of the most impressive and fast developing offensive tackles among the underclassmen.

It sounds like Goosby continues to add necessary weight to fill out his frame and get in the best shape possible entering preseason camp and the 2024 campaign.

Orangebloods' Anwar Richardson reported last week (subscriber content) that those in and around the program have taken notice of Goosby's attitude and work ethic to set the tone for the young linemen this summer. Goosby is really showing why he's such an important part of the future of this offensive line unit on and off the field for the program in 2024.

Goosby also reportedly has emerged as a legitimate challenger to be the next up to be the starting left tackle after junior Kelvin Banks Jr. gets drafted into the NFL in 2025.
