Will Texas Have Nation’s Most Influenced Explosive Offense?

Last season, the Texas Longhorns almost missed out on the national championship game, losing a heartbreaker to the Washington Huskies in the Sugar Bowl. Following the loss, many of the Longhorns’ top players, including their top four pass catchers, Ja’Tavion Sanders, Xavier Worthy, Adonai Mitchell, and Jordan Whittington, chose to join the NFL. Not to mention, their star running back, Jonathon Brooks, pushed his game to the next level.

To help offset this, the Longhorns secured an excellent harvest from the NCAA Transfer Portal, adding names like Isaiah Bond and Amari Niblack from Alabama, as well as Matthew Golden from Houston, to an already talented core of returning players.

With that in mind, 247Sports college football analyst Brad Crawford ranked the college football offenses that might be the most explosive in 2024, with the Longhorns ranking near the top at No. 5.

Crawford explained: Texas, led by a top-tier offensive line, enters the SEC with the goal of winning the league and securing the top playoff seed. The return of Quinn Ewers at quarterback will be the most essential factor in the Longhorns’ dynamic offense in 2024. He’s going to keep everything running for this unit and will have 15 practices this spring — without being touched — to create relationships with several of these newcomers, including Alabama transfers Bond and Amari Niblack, as well as Oregon State’s Silas Bolden, who is slated to take over the slot job. Steve Sarkisian, the master play-caller, has another loaded group.

Ohio State ranked first, followed by Oregon at second, Ole Miss at third, and Liberty at fourth. Meanwhile, Memphis ranked sixth behind Texas, followed by Georgia, Miami, Oklahoma, and LSU.
