Ryan Wingo, WR

Stellar and talented true freshman wide receiver Ryan Wingo has stolen the show for the Longhorns among the first-year players on campus since the start of spring ball and offseason workouts. Wingo showed during the spring why he was considered to be one of the top recruits as an early enrollee in the 2024 signing class.

Wingo's coaches and teammates have continuously praised his talent and efforts this summer. Second-year quarterback Arch Manning recently had some kind words for Wingo during his time at his family's Manning Passing Academy in Louisiana in the last week.

"Wingo is going to be a stud. He's going to play a lot this year. He's just everything you want in a wide receiver."

Arch Manning on Ryan Wingo

The quarterback-to-wide receiver connection between Arch and Wingo has become special almost immediately since spring ball and during 7-on-7 work this summer through the air. Wingo definitely has an NFL future from what he showed us in the last few months since the start of spring ball.

So far this summer, Wingo has looked like one of the "burners" among Texas's receiving corps. That's impressive, considering just how much speed Sarkisian and the Longhorns have in the wide receiver room this offseason, with track-like speed guys including Isaiah Bond, Johntay Cook II, Silas Bolden, and Ryan Niblett.
