For LB and CB, yes.

Our long snapper is taking snaps at ILB rn. We have like 5 scholarship guys there. We’re gonna have to take someone.
Our long snapper is doing that because he sucks at long snapping. (Have to find a home for him) A walk-on is snapping for us.

Obviously we will have to take someone but these dudes haven’t even been offered.

How many other SEC teams do you think have a freaking former long snapper playing LBer? We need LBs dude. At this point there isn’t anything wrong with seeing what options are out there.

we have done similar things in the past..... maybe not a former long snapper but definitely walk one playing big roles in the spring due to injury or guys not on campus yet..... This year.... we have one out injured and two suspended..... we also have two really good linebacking prospects at running back right.... we could definitely use a transfer or two if the right ones are available but it’s not as desperate as it seems.

Albright played LB at a pretty high level in high school I believe. Not your typical long snapper. Not claiming he's an SEC caliber LB, just stating that he is athletic.

Why he left Texas:
Mitchell was held out of team activities in early winter to tend to academic issues. Then, upon returning to the field, Mitchell ran with the twos in the first practice of spring.

Rather than taking it as a sign that he needed to pick things up and move forward, Mitchell allegedly pouted and didn’t participate in team functions for the next couple of days.

Mitchell is a fire brand as a player. His tenacity, style and relative production will be missed on the field.

But it’s obvious that Steve Sarkisian and Pete Kwiatkowski didn’t come to town to play around.

They’re asking for buy-in from all players at all times. It’s clear that Mitchell wasn’t bought in all of the time.

It seems like a lot of people think they know and understand what Albright is proficient at. In reality, none of us knows ****.

All I got.
He hasn't proved proficient at anything .. even what he got scolly for .. he was terrible last year snapping .. and watching the practice Sat .. he is definitely not a LB

Don’t have the sub, can someone post it
snips

Why Mitchell entered the portal is anyone's guess. There's been speculation about possible academic struggles, but Horns247 has also stated that team sources claim Steve Sarkisian's new staff "wouldn't want him leaving the team, even if he had to serve some kind of academic suspension".

"I was thinking I might go catch Tennessee's spring game on the 24th because they've offered as well."

Expect a decision to come from the Big 12 playmaker by the end of this month or early May at the latest.

Sorry but if the long snapper can’t long snap, you send him home. It’s a business these days.
