Lennard has plenty to replace after losing its leading passer (Gavin Henley) and receiver (Ha’keem Monroe), both of whom graduated. The Longhorns also are without several other playmakers who transferred elsewhere. With such a mass exodus, Lennard will be going through a youth movement in order to build for the future. Anthony Hunt likely be the featured ball carrier on offense and Duval Galite will be a dependable target for whoever takes over at quarterback. The top returner on defense is Elijah Darcueil, who had 20 tackles last season.
