After rocketing up the depth chart in his premiere season as a Texas Longhorn, Johnathan Gray is set for a monster year in 2013. In his sophomore year, the young tailback has a chance to establish himself as one of the country's best.
He may not exactly be a favorite to be named an All-American after rushing for under 1,000 yards last season, but Gray certainly has the talent to burst onto the scene. He set the national record with 205 touchdowns in high school against some of the best competition Texas has to offer, and he led the Longhorns in rushing last year despite making only four starts.
Now that Gray will be in an offense that suits all of his strengths with a full offseason under his belt, this coming season will be his breakout year. For the following reasons, that breakout could very well mean becoming Texas' first offensive All-American since Colt McCoy in 2008.
