Every day the return of EA Sports College Football 25 gets more real. EA released the Top 100 players in the game on Tuesday, and five players from Texas FBS schools made the list.

See how we did at predicting the top-ranked players on each team back in February. (Hint: If it were converted to a batting average, I wouldn't make the All-Star Game.)

No. 13 Texas Longhorns LT Kelvin Banks Jr. (94 overall)

Banks checks in as the highest-ranked Texas FBS player, pulling an upset over teammate and video game coverboy Quinn Ewers. A potential First Round selection in next year's NFL Draft, Banks has started all 27 games in his Texas career and earned First Team All-Big 12 honors last season. 

Banks is the third-highest ranked offensive lineman behind LSU left tackle Will Campbell (No. 2 overall) and Georgia right guard Tate Ratledge (No. 10 overall). 

No. 27 Texas Longhorns QB Quinn Ewers (92 overall)

Spin Ewers checks in at 92 overall, four points lower than we predicted in February. He has 97 overall awareness, however. So if you throw an interception, that's user error.

Ewers is the third-highest ranked quarterback behind Colorado's Shedeur Sanders (No. 17 overall) and Georgia's Carson Beck (No.18 overall).

No. 36 Texas Tech Red Raiders RB Tahj Brooks (92 overall)

It's Tahj Time in Lubbock. Brooks is 1,167 yards away from tying Texas Tech's all-time rushing record, but he's already made history as the team's highest-ranked player on EA Sports College Football 25.

Brooks has an 84 strength rating, which is higher than some offensive linemen in the Top 100.

No. 63 SMU LG Logan Parr (91 overall)

The O'Connor alum transferred to SMU after three seasons at Texas and immediately made an impact, earning All-AAC First Team honors and a spot on the DCTF All-Second Team. Parr will lead a Mustangs offensive line transitioning to Power Four football. 

No. 88 Texas A&M DE Nic Scourton (90 overall)

Scourton transferred to College Station from Purdue after leading the Big Ten in sacks last season, one of the biggest offseason acquisitions for Mike Elko's staff.
