AUSTIN, Texas -- Chris Whaley came into Texas at 235 pounds and as a running back.

He played four games at that position as a freshman, never making his mark on the field, or in the stat book, for that matter.

Fifty pounds and a year later, Whaley had moved to the other side of the ball and into the role of a rush end. He started a game, played in 12, had a sack and a couple of tackles for loss. More than that, he was seen as a player on the rise.
