Earlier we posted 5 thoughts on the spring game, you can find that here. Now here are 5 players that impressed in their performance on Saturday.
1. RB D’Angelo Brewer
This one is obvious. Brewer had a monster day on Saturday, and I’m excited to see him take over the starting role this year. The Golden Hurricane ranked 57th last year in rushing yards, I would expect that rank to rise this year behind the two-headed monster of Brewer and Warren.
2. CB Reginald Robinson
Robinson was TU’s second highest rated recruit in the 2015 class behind Chad President. After redshirting his freshman year, Robinson made some noise when he ran a blazing 4.28 unofficial 40 yard dash in spring drills. Robinson has nice size, and according to this article from the Cleburne Times Review he has a chance to start next year. Regardless, “Reggie” will be on the field next year and he’ll certainly be one to watch.
3. RB Ramadi Warren
Warren had a couple of shifty moves on Saturday that brought the crowd to their feet. Despite being the 3rd string running back last year as a Redshirt freshman, he found the end zone 6 times including a 65 yarder against Cincinnati. Warren has the “homerun” ability, and every time he touches the ball he has the chance to go all the way.
4. WR Jarion Anderson
A relative unknown coming into Saturday, the freshman from Texarkana made himself known with a touchdown reception in the spring game. Anderson is very quick, and proved himself to be a playmaker.
5. WR Rashad Ray
I made sure to keep an eye on number 6 during the spring game because I was curious to see how the point guard would transition from the court to the field after 4 years away from the game. The 5’10” Louisiana product looked really, really quick on the field. His routes in warmups were sharp, and he has good hands too. It will certainly be an adjustment for Ray, but if he continues to work and get reps then I wouldn’t be surprised to see him on the field next year.
