The Texas Longhorns will boast one of the most talented running backs corps in the country, and a big piece of that will be sophomore running back Johnathan Gray.
Gray was forced into bigger action much earlier than anticipated with Malcolm Brown suffering an injury midseason, but Gray managed to roll with the punches and performed about as well as one could have expected from a true freshman.
With the Longhorns moving with more tempo on offense, the running backs have been getting a myriad of looks in the passing game. Gray has performed solidly in that area, along with his two counterparts, Brown and Joe Bergeron.
Gray was Texas' top performer in the backfield a season ago, and a seasoned offensive unit could definitely help his numbers increase as a sophomore.
