It’s no secret that the Texas Longhorns will have a high-powered offense in 2022.

While there are still a few holes to fill, particularly along the offensive line, it’s hard to ignore the firepower that Steve Sarkisian was able to bring in via the transfer portal this offseason.

Shortly after Texas landed a commitment from former Alabama wide receiver Agiye Hall on Tuesday evening, many began discussing how dangerous the Longhorns offense will be this upcoming season, so much so that some proclaimed it could be the best in the country.

Josh Pate of 247Sports doesn’t think it’s bold to believe that Texas could have the No. 1 scoring offense behind the likes of Bijan Robinson, Xavier Worthy and several other new additions.

Robinson and Worthy will still be the focal point of Sarkisian’s offense, but the wide receiver room took a significant step this offseason by landing Isaiah Neyor and Agiye Hall. Not to mention, speedster Brennen Thompson will arrive on campus this summer.

It’s still too early to deem Quinn Ewers the starting quarterback for the season opener on Sept. 3, as he’s amidst a close position battle with third-year player Hudson Card, but his ability to stretch the field only heightens the excitement for this new wide receiver room.

“Texas could absolutely end up locking down the number one scoring offense. Now the follow up is how much of that is out of necessity? Because they find themselves still having to score 35 or 40 to win, which is a defensive question,” Pate said.
