The Texas Longhorns made a quick exit in this year’s NCAA Tournament, but they have plenty to build on for the upcoming season. Assuming the many underclassmen on this young roster return to Austin for another year, stars J’Covan Brown and Myck Kabongo will have a chance to lead the 2012-13 Longhorns to something much more impressive than a No. 11 seed.
To make that happen, though, they’ll need more production from a supporting cast loaded with potential. Sheldon McClellan put in a solid effort in his freshman season, but a more reliable jump shot would make the 6'4" guard a far more dangerous complement to penetrating classmate Kabongo.
Herein, a closer look at McClellan and some of the other Longhorns who will need to raise their games to make Texas a contender in 2012-13.
