While ace quarterback Quinn Ewers returns, there is concern about the receiving group’s loss of skill. That was until Steve Sarkisian went out and signed three of the best transfer portal pass catchers. One of them is regarded as one of the top all-around receivers in college football.

ESPN just ranked the top receivers in college football, with Quinn Ewers’ anticipated new No. 1 target coming in at No. 10. “A former Georgia high school sprint champion in the 100 and 200 meters, Bond has blazing speed and should develop into a reliable deep threat for the Longhorns,” according to ESPN’s Mark Schlabach. Notable players who joined Bond on the list included Colorado’s Travis Hunter, Michigan’s Colston Loveland, and Oregon’s Tez Johnson.

Bond caught 48 receptions from Jalen Milroe this season, totaling 668 yards and four touchdowns. Assuming Ewers continues to improve like he did last season, Bond’s numbers will skyrocket, since both Xavier Worthy and Adonai Mitchell had at least 55 catches for 800+ yards. Bond will also have the opportunity to pair up with Houston transfer Matthew Golden and Oregon State transfer Silas Bolden, creating one of college football’s most electrifying trios.

Bond ranked as the portal’s No. 4 player and No. 1 receiver after his transfer. With a more confident Ewers tossing him the ball, Bond is on track to break nearly every Texas school record in 2024.
