and DJ Grant at the slot on 4 WR sets next year?
I wouldn't be surprised to see Shipley move to the slot. That's where his brother played and had a lot of success. Jake Oliver could see some time there too if he plays are a true freshman. On the outside we have a ton of guys that could replace Goodwin...Cayleb Jones, Marcus Johnson, John Harris, Miles O, Daje Johnson. We're very deep at WR and I wouldn't be surprised to see one or two guys transfer as a result.
I would have probably said Cayleb had the lead, but who knows if he'll be here judging by his father's comments.
Shouldn't be hard, he only had 14 catches all year.
The logical guess in my opinion would be Kendall Sanders because he has the most similar skillset. Disappointed we wasted a year he could have got a shirt though.
Kendall Sanders will get on the field next year somehow as long as he stays healthy.
Texas wants another speed guy outside. It's why the Horns are so high on James Clark.

Twitter comment during the game when the offense was struggling. Something to the effect of "Why don't they put my son in to get things moving?"
Twitter is a lot like game threads. Just an opportunity for an emotional outburst without giving it any thought. Some people are treating it as significant. I choose not to.
It's significant if Robert Jones feels that strongly and wants Cayleb to transfer. I doubt anything comes of it, but it is something to watch.
+1 good post! Concur

Grant probably can receive a medical red-shirt if he wants to come back for another year. I don't know if he wants to or not. I'm certain the staff will welcome him back if he does. Onyegbule will be in the discussion as well. It actually too bad that we wasted his red-shirt as freshman. He's already being listed at 235 lbs.
Well said. Moving right along
Wouldn't be surprised to see Shipley and Davis on the outside, and Daje in the slot. If Daje can catch the ball (unlike DJ) from the slot, then jet sweeps and reverses become far less obvious to the defense. Also, would love to see Daje matched up with Safeties with his open field moves and strength to break arm tackles. Not sure if Daje has the tools to run routes, get himself open, and catch the ball consistently in the underneath zones, but I'd give him a look.
If not, then I'm in the camp that moves Shipley inside to the Slot, and leave Davis, Jones, Sanders, et al on the outside.
i was thinking sanders on the outside as well... stretch the field... then if mcfarland can catch the ball... there's your TE...
There's a few options out there for Texas with the players already there. I hope Jake Oliver is a redshirt but no one will replace Goodwin.
Does anyone know if Evans can catch the ball? He has great speed. If we are not going use him on D, He has speed to run by people and has good size.
