During the summer, HornsNation will analyze each of the scholarship players on the Texas roster -- excluding the Longhorns' 2013 recruiting class -- in our Burnt Orange Breakdown series. Starting with No. 1 Mike Davis, we will go through the roster numerically, finishing with No. 99 Desmond Jackson.

No. 17 Adrian Phillips
Senior safety


Expectations for 2013: Phillips had a miserable 2012 season. He was one of the main reasons Texas was so poor at tackling and, as a result, porous on defense. The coaches blamed that season on Phillips’ shoulder. Phillips had missed the previous spring with the shoulder injury and was unable to tackle in fall practice.
