AUSTIN, Texas – The day that Texas' coaches will have to make a decision on its freshmen is fast approaching.
Which of them will play and who will wait a year? Last season, Texas had a school-record 18 freshmen play, with many of them seeing significant time.
In 2012, few freshmen are expected to make the impact that those did in 2011.
Texas played 18 true freshmen in 2011. The Longhorns might not use that many this season, but several will see a lot of playing time. We look at the chances for each freshman.
