Horns Three Days into Fall Camp
Updated: Wednesday, August 7 2013, 11:52 PM CDT
University of Texas Head Coach Mack Brown said Wednesday night after football practice that Quandre Diggs has come back quicker than they thought he would from his injury and could be cleared soon. Mike Davis and Jackson Shipley are still limited, but the Horns continue to show progress in all areas.
The Horns added shells for day three of practice, and Wednesday was just as spirited as the first two days. Coach Brown said this early on he is just focusing on individual players as well as the young meshing with the veterans.
"The first two days are just orientation because they are in shorts," Brown said. "You can't learn to swim without a pool and you can't learn to play football without pads."
After two average seasons, Brown believes Texas is on track to get back in the mix for a Big 12 title.
"We got the talent and we've played well enough at times; we've got to do it all the time," Brown said.
To be more competitive in the fast-flying conference, the horns added an up-tempo offense with more plays, and improved quarterback and solid set of receivers. It was apparent in three days of practice new faces had already started to shine, and among the standouts were sophomore Kendall Sanders who has the potential for a big breakout year.
"All of those young ones have shown ability, but we probably wouldn't have gotten them as many snaps if Jackson and Mike were out there, but really been impressed with Kendall sanders," Brown said.
Young talent that will complement so many experienced players on the field is one of the reason Texas is expected to be a top conference contender this year. Brown is returning 19 of 22 starters, which helps explain Brown's confidence after the first three days of practice.
"Both staffs are ahead of where they were last spring, we have more depth, we have more speed, more size and strength," Brown said.
The Horns will strap-up in full gear on Friday, and fans will also be able to come to practice and watch the team for the rest of the week.
