AUSTIN — John Tyler lineman Ashton Dorsey, Athens wide receiver Kendall Sanders and Van linebacker Dalton Santos have been named to the Texas Longhorns’ three-deep roster, announced Wednesday.
Sanders (6-0, 183) is a member of a nine-player receiving corps. Santos (6-3, 250) is on a linebacker unit that also features Daingerfield’s Steve Edmond (6-3, 255), a starter, and Carthage’s Kendall Thompson (6-3, 237).
Dorsey is in the rotation on the defensive line.
Davis Ash was named UT’s starting quarterback.
Meanwhile, the Longhorn Network will carry two Texas football games again this season, though it hasn’t announced any Big 12 contests on its schedule.
ESPN said Wednesday that the Longhorns’ first two games — both at home — will be televised on the network, which still hasn’t struck deals with most major national distributors.
The opponents are Wyoming in the season opener Sept. 1 and New Mexico on Sept. 8. Both games will start at 7 p.m. Central time.
The network, which is a 20-year, $300 million partnership between Texas and ESPN, aired two Texas games when it debuted last year, including a Big 12 game against Kansas. It will also televise two Texas State home games, Sept. 29 against Nevada and Nov. 10 against Louisiana Tech.
