AUSTIN (KXAN) — EA Sports released the ranking of the top 100 players The Texas Longhorns’ roster isn’t as big as you might think since the upcoming College Football 25 video game is out.

Quarterback Quinn Ewers and offensive lineman Kelvin Banks Jr. are the Longhorns players in the top 100. Overall, Banks ranks 13th at 94, while Ewers ranks 27th at 92. Banks’ top attributes are awareness at 96 and strength at 92, while Ewers has an awareness rating of 97 and a speed rating of 81. EA Sports has not released any specific attributes that make up the top 100 (such as arm strength for quarterbacks).

Positionally, Ewers is the No. 3 quarterback overall, behind Georgia’s Carson Beck and Colorado’s Shadeur Sanders, while Banks is the No. 2 left tackle.

Texas will see one of the game’s top-rated players in Week 2 of the season. Michigan cornerback Will Johnson is one of three players with a 96 overall rating to top the list. Ewers and what is expected to be a dynamic offense will have to figure out how to limit Johnson’s impact when the teams meet in Ann Arbor on Sept. 7. Other 96-rated players are Louisiana State left tackle Will Campbell and Oklahoma State running back Ollie Gordon II.
