The Texas Longhorns put in a 7-5 year following an offseason that was marred by changes and injected with fresh blood in a season that saw heavy reliance on young players.
Malcolm Brown, Joe Bergeron, David Ash, Josh Cochran, Quandre Diggs and Jaxon Shipley all seemed to have bought into Mack Brown's rebuilding plan as true freshmen, though there were plenty of upperclassmen and graduating seniors who did more than chip in their fair share.
Several players have already left the Texas program via transfer or medical hardships. Others have simply graduated.
The Longhorns will turn over a new leaf next season, but without the presence of a handful of solid veterans.
Here are seven players that Texas will miss the most in 2012.
