Texas Longhorns 2010 Season Texas Longhorns Off-Season Update The Texas Longhorns are geared and ready for next season. The Coaches and recruiting assitants have blazed the trail and brought in the currently #1 ranked class in the nation, filled with talent across the board. Highlighting the class 5* #1 ranked MLB Maurice Bailey. Bailey has the speed and athleticism to move sideline to sideline and make big time plays for us. With the loss of starting MLB Jared Norton, a void needs to be filled for the 2nd MLB position in the 3-4 defensive scheme. The Coaches feel Bailey can come in and take on that role. Bailey will be a nice addition to a defense that loss alot of talent on all 3 levels. The Longhorns do return 1st Team All-Big 12DE Eddie Jones and 2nd Teamers CB Chykie Brown and Blake Gideon. Texas will also be bringing in 4* commits DT Trevor Burnette, MLB JJ Pickens, OLBs Justin Cooper and Michael Roland. We will need to wait until spring ball to evaluate these players and see if any will earn some plays this fall. On offensive side of the ball is where the Longhorns bring in most of the talent. With loss of 1st Team All-American WR Jordan Shipley and 2nd Team All-American QB Colt McCoy, the Longhorns definitely needed to reload. They did this by bringing in 5* #2 WR Lewis Crosby who is looking to be a huge impact to the Texas offense. The WR corps was already deep with talent even after the loss of Shipley, the addition of Crosby will definitely make the unit better. It remains to be see if Crosby will see time his first year, but he will be a factor for years to come. To an already deep, talented backfield, Texas was able to bring in 5* #2 HB Robert Johnson. Johnson will undoubtly redshirt his first year as the Longhorns feature 3 Junior running backs whom have starting potential. The offensive line got some added depth by bringing in commits 5* G Jermaine Harris, 5* T Santonio Daniel and 4* C Cole Broussard. The offensive cordinator was able to wrangle 4* QB Shannon Murphy away from Nebraska bringing in a backup for Sr QB Sherrod Harris. It has not been determined where 4* Athlete Terrance Phillips will play, the coaches will have to take a look at him after spring ball rolls around. It is sure to be an exciting season for the Longhorns as they try to go through the tough South and North divisions of the Big 12 conference.
