SAD NEWS: The Texas Longhorns Steve Sarkisian Confirmed Big Blow in their chase for a defensive line during this offseason… 

Coach Steve Sarkisian’s concerns about bolstering the defensive line this offseason have been underscored by recent developments. Following the spring game, Sarkisian openly acknowledged the team’s lack of depth in the defensive line, stressing the urgency for reinforcements.

“The depth on the defensive line is not where we need it to be,” Sarkisian expressed. “Hopefully we can address that. That’s a bit concerning… We don’t have enough bodies. There’s not enough big humans. It’s simple math.”

Despite securing commitments from Arizona transfers Bill Norton and Tiaoalii Savea, the failure to land Williams represents a significant setback for Texas.

Williams brings a formidable track record to the table, having started 27 games since the 2022 season, tallying impressive stats including 60 total tackles, 4.5 sacks, 9.5 tackles for loss, and one forced fumble. His pivotal role in TCU’s journey to the CFP National Championship adds to his appeal.


With defensive linemen T’Vondre Sweat and Byron Murphy departing for the draft, Texas now faces the challenge of replenishing lost experience, particularly in maintaining its formidable run defense from the previous season. Players such as Barryn Sorrell, Ethan Burke, Alfred Collins, and Vernon Broughton will be crucial in striving to replicate those defensive achievements. Additionally, the Longhorns have reinforced their defensive line with transfers Trey Moore from UTSA and Tiaoalii Savea from Arizona, while also welcoming five-star freshman Colin Simmons.
