1. Anthony Morgan
You probably know him as the All-American offensive guard out of Navarro (Texas) College that OSU signed at midterm. But you will know him better by the spring game on April 18. He will start in that game and he may be on the number one offense. He is a good athlete that can block the pass, but his biggest purpose could be as the guy Zac Robinson or one of the big running backs run behind in short-yardage and goal-line situations. He will be the Cowboys' masher.
2. Justin Horton
He's a freak with his speed as he is close to 4.5 and yet weighs close to 240 pounds. He got in late last fall and for that reason wasn't looked at and was redshirted, but he tore them up on the scout team. Teammates know about him and the defense considers him a real pain in the behind.
3. Justin Blackmon
He is so athletic that if he really can master the offense and gain a little confidence then he may be a starter next season. He is that good as an athlete and he has great hands, and makes the hard catches look easy.
4. Darius Hart
He came in at 6-6, 250 pounds and is just what you want to see at defensive end. If he makes the adjustment and learns to play close to what he showed in junior college he will get plenty of time in a talented area at defensive end.
5. Nigel Nicholas
He is a tremendous athlete that came in and just ballooned up in his redshirt season and is now weighing anywhere from 265-to-285 depending on who you believe. He will make the move inside to tackle and could be an instant contributor. He needs to gain some confidence early in the spring and that could really propel him on.
