AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas coach Mack Brown announced Sunday that special teams contributors Cade McCrary and Nate Boyer will be put on scholarship this season.

McCrary is a junior wide receiver from Austin's Lake Travis High School. He has served as the Longhorns' holder for the past two seasons, including on Justin Tucker's game-winning field goal against Texas A&M last fall.

Boyer joined the program last season as a 30-year-old walk-on after spending the previous nine years in the Army.

The former Green Beret staff sergeant -- he served for two tours of duty in Iraq -- is competing with freshman Kyle Ashby for Texas' long-snapping duties.
