Both Armanti and D’Onta Foreman are expected to have bigger roles for the University of Texas next season, as the Texas City duo have been listed among the top five sophomores capable of providing an impact for the Longhorns.
Ranked third in the 247sports.com piece, Armanti Foreman averaged nearly 20 yards per touch last season and will see more than the 12 combined rushes and receptions he tallied as a freshman. He is projected to benefit from the arrival of new receivers coach Jay Norvell, who recruited him when Norvell had the same position at Oklahoma.
D’Onta Foreman is third behind Jonathan Gray and Donald Catalon on the depth chart. With Gray already established, the plan is to have Foreman see an extensive look during the spring football schedule in hopes of him taking a step forward to a bigger role.
