The long-awaited news that a new NCAA Football video game is coming out arrived with the announcement and trailer for EA Sports College Football 25 last week. EA announced on its website that a full reveal of the new college football video game is coming this May, and the release is expected for the summer.

Best bets for the top Texas football players in EA Sports College Football 25

This will be the first EA Sports NCAA Football video game in over a decade. The last time an officially licensed EA Sports college football video game was released was in 2013, officially titled NCAA Football 14.

While no official release date has been announced for the EA Sports College Football 25 video game, the debates have already started raging regarding which players and teams should be the highest rated.

There is no shortage of debate from Texas football fans regarding which players from their squad should be the highest rated. Texas is a team that is expected to contend for an SEC title and a spot in the new 12-team College Football Playoff during the upcoming 2024 season.

Thus, you would expect that the combination of starpower and team expectations for the 2024 would mean the Longhorns have plenty of highly-rated players in the new college football video game.

Here's a prediction of the five highest-rated Longhorns players in the new EA Sports College Football 25 video game.

5. Alfred Collins, DL

Overall rating projection: 90

Texas's best returning defensive lineman for the 2024 season is senior defensive tackle Alfred Collins. The 6-foot-5 and 305-pound defensive tackle Collins is not only Texas's highest-graded returning defensive lineman in 2024, but he is also the most physically gifted.

Between his length, agility, and overall athleticism, Collins has the upside to be a potential first round pick in the 2025 NFL Draft.

The combination of Collins putting it all together on the field for the Longhorns in the last season or two along with his insane physical tools makes him a no-brainer as Texas's highest-rated defensive tackle in EA Sports College Football 25.
