Former Carroll all-purpose back, Texas receiver signs as undrafted free agent with Saints

Former Southlake Carroll running back and Texas wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey signed as an undrafted free agent with the New Orleans Saints on Saturday.

Humphrey chose to forego his senior season at UT after he had 1,176 yards receiving and nine touchdowns on 86 catches last season for the Longhorns.

He was a standout running back at Carroll where he was a two-time all-state selection. He was first-team all-state by the TSWA as an all-purpose player, and second-team by the Associated Press as a running back in 2015.

Humphrey rushed 184 times for 1,292 yards and 14 touchdowns, and caught 57 passes for 876 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior as part of an offense that averaged 41.9 points per game. Humphrey rushed for 1,828 yards and 29 touchdowns on 289 carries while making 26 receptions for 285 yards and three touchdowns as a junior.
