Longhorn newcomers reveal jersey numbers as Texas holds its first football practice

Posted July 31st, 2017


On Monday, the Class of 2017 made its debut.

Texas opened the week with its first football practice of the season, and 16 members of Texas’ 2017 recruiting class were at the Denius Fields. (Defensive lineman Jamari Chisholm and receiver Damion Miller are not yet with the team). Quarterback Sam Ehlinger, running back Toneil Carter and kicker Joshua Rowland went through spring drills at UT, so they were already on the Texas roster. Monday, though, provided onlookers with a first glimpse at the other newcomers.

Some of the players — like Spring Westfield running back Daniel Young and Humble Atascocita offensive lineman Samuel Cosmi — were suited up in the same jersey numbers they wore in high school. Other players had to switch numbers because their jersey was taken by an established veteran (in wide receiver Jordan Pouncey’s case, that was incumbent quarterback Shane Buechele). Cade Brewer is wearing a new number since the No. 10 he wore at Lake Travis is retired at Texas.


Here are the jersey numbers that were assigned to the incoming players. Graduate transfer Kendall Moore, a tight end from Syracuse, will wear No. 88:


  • No. 11: Sam Ehlinger
