WATCH: Offensive lineman Austin Allsup receives a scholarship ahead of his senior season at Texas

Posted August 25th, 2018


For the second time this week, Texas has awarded a walk-on with a scholarship.

In a team meeting on Saturday, senior offensive lineman Austin Allsup received a scholarship. Texas senior Andrew Beck, who was also named a team captain on Saturday, made the announcement. After the declaration, the Longhorns celebrated with Allsup in a video the team posted on its Twitter page.

Two days earlier, defensive back Jarmarquis Durst was also placed on scholarship.


Allsup walked onto the football team during the spring of 2016. After serving on the team’s practice squad that fall, Allsup appeared in UT’s routs of San Jose State and Baylor in 2017. He also played in a 42-27 win over Kansas.

Allsup, who is studying architectural engineering, hails from Lorena.
