With August approaching and Texas set to prepare for the 2022 season, a number of players can improve their standing within the depth chart.

Multiple positions are up for grabs, with none more important than quarterback and left tackle. Quinn Ewers and Hudson Card will battle for the right to run Sarkisian’s offense, while Andrej Karic and Kelvin Banks will battle for the premier offensive line spot.

With Xavier Worthy and Isaiah Neyor figuring to take the most snaps at receiver, Jordan Whittington, Ja’Tavion Sanders, Jahleel Billingsley, Agiye Hall and others will jockey for the remaining spots.

Texas could have another open spot on the offensive line. The defense should have quite a few openings as well. Here are players with the most to gain from a strong fall camp.

Quinn Ewers

Ohio State Football Training Camp

Ewers came to Texas in part to win the quarterback competition. A strong performance could win him the starting job for his childhood favorite team.

Cole Hutson

Austin American-Statesman

The blue chip talent was one of the few early enrollees for Texas. Should he follow his strong spring with another good camp, he could take hold playing time at center or guard this season.

Hall is in the Xavier Worthy tier of receiver talents. If he can do it on a consistent basis, Texas may have to reshuffle the offense to make room for the elite receiver.

Kelvin Banks

Banks showed his physical prowess at the high school level. If he can prove to pick up the Texas offense quickly, the left tackle job may be his for the taking.

Devon Campbell

Texas won a big battle over Oklahoma for Campbell. He and Cole Hudson will push Hayden Conner for one of the guard spots. Campbell could also spend time at right tackle if needed as well.

Murphy is perhaps the best interior defensive lineman on the team. His job is to leave no doubt for the Texas coaching staff this fall.

There’s an opening at linebacker next to Jaylan Ford. The James Madison transfer can earn his playing time this season.

Crawford is making the move from cornerback to safety. If he can prove to process the game at safety, he can secure a starting role.
