ESPN.com All-Big 12 underclassman team

On our All-Big 12 team that came out Monday only two underclassmen made the cut. And one of those was West Virginia punter Nick “Boomstache” O’Toole (Texas Tech offensive tackle Le’Raven Clark was the other).

But that doesn’t mean the Big 12 is bereft of young talent that impacted this season. And to underscore that, we put together our All-Big 12 underclassman team (freshmen and sophomores).

This team is based on 2013 performance, not future potential -- though many on this list also have bright futures.
