Texas Football: 7 Longhorns Who Could Surprise This Spring

Who will make a big impression on Charlie Strong this spring?

Charlie Strong's first spring practice with the Texas Longhorns begins on March 18. Which unknowns will make an impression on their new head coach?

Every spring begins with expectations for the returning starters as well as the rotational players that saw regular action. This is the time for them to show that they are ready for extra reps and to seize their roles for next season.

It is also the time for the relative unknowns to burst on to the scene, especially in front of their new coaching staff. Whether they are redshirts or simply looking to find a spot before it's too late, these guys have as much to gain (or lose) as any of the returning regulars.

Aside from Hassan Ridgeway, a little-used but immensely talented tackle, this list is all about the Longhorns that can go from occupying a roster spot to a budding star with a big showing.
