The real problem, though, is that the Longhorns are going to need some freshmen to start in 2015, and they lack commits to fill several expected vacancies.
Just based on graduation, the 'Horns will lose at least five defenders and four offensive players after this coming season. The defensive backfield will need the most help after losing three starters, while the offense will be facing an identity crisis without bruising ball-carriers Malcolm Brown and Joe Bergeron.
As soon as Texas adds players like Kendall Sheffield and Chris Warren to fill these voids, you can write them into the starting lineup. The same can be said about the tight end position if the Longhorns ever land a reliable one.
