Before Texas begins its first season under Charlie Strong, we're taking a deep dive into all the talent he inherits in 2014. Our Burnt Orange Breakdown series will take a closer look at each scholarship player returning this fall and what we can expect from them.
AUSTIN, Texas -- We continue this week's five to watch series with underclassmen who could take on important roles for the Longhorns in 2014. We'll exclude offensive lineman Kent Perkins, who would definitely make this list, because he made yesterday's list of key missing parts.
Editor's note: This is the first part of a weeklong series breaking down Texas' most important spring position battles when the Longhorns begin practice in two weeks. Moving on: Texas is losing, statistically, one of the best wide receivers in its program's history in Mike Davis.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Mike Davis and Jaxon Shipley aren't practicing, and that just might be a good thing. As strange as it sounds, Texas' top two wide receivers spending the first week of fall camp sidelined ended up proving beneficial for the Longhorns offense.
While it might not make much sense to call a member of the ESPN 300 a "sleeper" in the traditional sense, it's safe to say Jacorey Warrick might begin his Longhorns career a bit underrated by the fan base.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Each week, I look at a few topics around the Texas Longhorns and college football. First down: Few O-linemen in 2014 class Expect Texas to concentrate on the 2015 offensive line class -- it already has three rising juniors committed -- and to stick with one or two offensive linemen in the 2014 class.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Time and again over the past two years, Texas coach Mack Brown has been true to his word: The best players, no matter the age or experience level, will play. That has led to 34 true freshmen -- the most in FBS -- hitting the field in the past two seasons.

Texas lost five previously committed players in its 2013 recruiting class, something that never used to be a problem for the Longhorns. But they'll finish with the Big 12's top class in 2013, featuring eight ESPN 300 signees.
