Matthews ready to step up

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

So far in his col­lege ca­reer, sopho­more Bar­rett Matthews’ ré­sumé con­sists of one tackle on spe­cial teams. But that should change dra­mat­i­cally this year.

The 6-2 235-pounder has found a home in the tight end/H-back role in Texas’ new run­ning schemes. Al­though Brown says Matthews’ pass-catch­ing skills need pol­ish­ing, he caught some eyes in the spring and will get his chance to shine.

An­other po­ten­tial step­per-up­per? Wide re­ceiver DeSean Hales. In the spring, the sopho­more and Gil­bert showed a nice rap­port.
