Texas Longhorns football team could potentially add another player to its defensive line through transfer. The team is interested in Trill Carter, the mammoth-sized defensive tackle from Minnesota. The Longhorns are set to host the player, who stands 6-foot-2 and weighs 300 pounds, this week. Carter might not have remarkable production stats, with only 19 total tackles and 1.5 sacks on record from last season, but he fits well within defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski’s scheme.
Kwiatkowski, who also prides himself on recruiting big players upfront, needs imposing figures at the defensive pivot to prevent opponents from disrupting the linebackers’ game. It’s still uncertain whether Carter would be a transformative or rotational player, but Texas is wise to add more talent to their ranks.
The Longhorns have high expectations for Jalen Milroe this season. According to reports, Alabama thinks that the young quarterback is “1000 times better” than where he was last year. Texas should have a stable starting quarterback situation with Casey Thompson and Hudson Card, but Milroe is also fighting for the backup role.
The Longhorn’s young defense is showing some promise with secondary as a potential stronghold. There are plenty of young players on the squad, but with promising talent, the veterans are starting to take notice. The team will have plenty of competition this year, especially after a disappointing 2022 season that saw the team finished eight in the Big 12.
