The Longhorns finally acknowledge the split in playing time between Jerrin Thompson and Brenden Schooler.
- The most only notable change since last week is sophomore Jerrin Thompson becoming the first listed co-starter at safety over super senior Brenden Schooler. Thompson has received more playing time in the last several weeks, but after Schooler’s collision with senior cornerback D’Shawn Jamison that helped produce one of the long touchdowns last week, Thompson has officially moved in front of the former wide receiver.
- During Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian’s Monday press conference, he said that the injury situation is “status quo.” Since redshirt freshman wide receiver Troy Omeire (knee) is not listed on the depth chart and neither is sophomore cornerback Jahdae Barron (knee), both are presumably out for this weekend’s game against TCU. Freshman cornerback Ishmael Ibraheem is no longer on the depth chart after suffering a season-ending knee injury against Rice.
- Super senior Darion Dunn is listed as the backup to senior Josh Thompson, but when he came in the game against Texas Tech, it was to replace Jamison, who gave up the two long passing plays. Dunn tackled well and hasn’t had any notable coverage busts, so it could be an important week of practice for Jamison in holding off the McNeese State transfer.
