ESPN.com's Big 12 All-Freshman team

You saw my picks for the All-Big 12 team earlier this week.

Now, here's who I'm taking for the All-Freshman team. And no worries, the party is for everybody. True freshmen and redshirts are invited. (Blackshirts not allowed, but only because they play almost no freshmen, with apologies to Ciante Evans and his stellar performance against Missouri.)


QB: Taylor Martinez, Nebraska

RB: James Sims, Kansas

RB: Joseph Randle, Oklahoma State

WR: Kenny Stills, Oklahoma

WR: Paul Richardson, Colorado

WR: Mike Davis, Texas

FB: Trey Millard, Oklahoma

OL: Jeremiah Sirles, Nebraska

OL: Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M

OL: Cyril Richardson, Baylor

OL: David Bakhtiari, Colorado

OL: Jake Matthews, Texas A&M


DL: Damontre Moore, Texas A&M

DL: Michael Sam, Missouri

DL: Tevin Elliott, Baylor

DL: Jackson Jeffcoat, Texas

LB: Shaun Lewis, Oklahoma State

LB: Tom Wort, Oklahoma

LB: Jordan Hicks, Texas

CB: Tre' Porter, Texas Tech

CB: Jarvis Phillips, Texas Tech

S: Tony Jefferson, Oklahoma

S: Ty Zimmerman, Kansas State


P: Kirby Van Der Kamp, Iowa State

K: Aaron Jones, Baylor

KR: Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State

PR: Tramaine Thompson, Kansas State

Selections by team: Oklahoma (4), Oklahoma State (3), Texas (3), Texas A&M (3), Baylor (3), Colorado (2), Nebraska (2), Texas Tech (2), Kansas State (2), Iowa State (1), Kansas (1), Missouri (1)

With freshmen, putting together these teams is a little tougher, but I feel pretty good about this group. We'll get to see plenty of these guys in the future.

Who got snubbed, and who doesn't belong?
