After two years as a starter and a strong spring, Texas's Dominic Espinosa has been named to the spring watch list for the Rimington Trophy, an award given annually to the nation's top center.

Espinosa has played in 26 games as a Longhorn, all starts, after redshirting his freshman year. In 2012, he was a part of the 23rd-best scoring offense in the country, one that averaged 35.7 points per game and 434.6 total yards per game. Additionally, the Longhorn line did an outstanding job of keeping opponents out of its backfield, with Texas ranking third nationally in tackles for loss per game with 4.1, and 22nd nationally in sacks allowed per game with 1.23.

The Cedar Park native was named to the 2011 Yahoo! Sports Freshman All-America second team. As a high school player, Espinosa was an all-state player and a two-time first-team all-district selection. He played in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl and was ranked the No. 6 center by Scout.com.

The Rimington Trophy winner is chosen through the votes of four All-America teams, including the American Football Coaches Association, the Walter Camp Football Foundation, the Sporting News and the Football Writers Association of America.

Former Longhorn Chris Hall was a Rimington Trophy finalist in 2009.
