Newsome discusses Orange-White Scrimmage

2015 Texas commit four-star wide receiver Ryan Newsome (Aledo, Texas) liked what he saw from the Longhorns on Saturday.

He was especially impressed by what he saw from the quarterbacks.

“I was glad to see Tyrone [Swoopes] and Jerrod [Heard] compete,” Newsome said.

The 5-foot-8, 198 pound speedster from Aledo also liked what he saw from the offensive changes.

“The tempo of the game was a lot quicker but efficient,” Newsome said. “Everyone appears more focused than I remember last year. I think the desire to win is more evident.”

Newsome added that he sees himself playing the same role Texas wide receiver/running back Daje Johnson plays.

“The role that Daje [Johnson] plays, I see myself playing those roles,” he said. “I know they plan to do some wildcat formations with me. As well as lining me up at running back from time-to-time. Those are the tentative plans.”

DeMarco Boyd on Texas

2016 Longhorn commit three-star outside linebacker Demarco Boyd (Gilmer, Texas) enjoyed his visit to Austin.

“I loved it like always,” he said.

While the Gilmer native liked what he saw at Texas’ spring game, he knows the Longhorns can get better.

“I enjoyed it,” Boyd said. “We’re making progress but we’re not where we need to be. After that 2015 class gets in there then we are going to start rolling.”

The 5-foot-11.5, 215 pound junior outside linebacker also noticed an issue with Texas’ depth.

“The depth is short,” he said. “I could [tell] that certain positions were short and they plugged guys into certain spots.”

Anderson talks Spring game

2016 three-star defensive tackle Darius Anderson (Sugar Land, Texas) had a great time on the Forty Acres at Texas’ annual Orange-White Scrimmage.

“It was great,” he said.

Anderson added that he noticed the Longhorns improvement and he saw promise in Texas.

The 6-foot-0.5, 295 junior defensive tackle said he had an opportunity to talk with Coach Robinson and Coach Haley at the game.

“[We talked about] everything honestly,” Anderson said.

He said he had two favorite things about Saturday.

“The atmosphere and talking with the coaches,” Anderson said.

Anderson is the No. 11 defensive tackle in Texas. He currently holds an offer from East Carolina. The Sugar Land native is getting recruited by Florida, LSU, Missouri, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M and UCLA.
