Let’s use Texas’ roster, history and scouting reports to countdown to the start of the 2017 football season. Today, we are only 57 days away from Texas’ home game against Maryland.
Which Longhorn wears No. 57? Nobody. OL Clark Orren (2012-15); DE Taylor Silguero (2011), DS Joe Shields (2010) and OL Andrew Carroll (2007-09) have all worn that number over the past decade, though.
Who also wears No. 57? Maryland DL Kingsley Opara (41 tackles, three sacks in 2016); Baylor OL Tanner Thrift (three starts)
Fun fact about No. 57: Two members of Texas’ 2017 recruiting class — linebacker Marquez Bimage and defensive lineman Jamari Chisholm — had 57-tackle seasons in 2016. Bimage is a three-star product of Brenham High’s pipeline to Texas. A transfer from Southeastern Oklahoma A&M, Chisholm was one of the final additions to Texas’ Class of 2017.
