2012 Roster Shape
2012 Outlook: Still Looking
Echols is the only current commitment slated specifically for corner, as Thomas was recruited as an athlete. Still, it appears that cornerback could be the starting, and ending, spot for the Copperas Cove product. That still leaves one spot that the Longhorns would like to fill at the position, though they might consider it filled if Kendall Sanders commits as a wide receiver. Sanders is the state's top cornerback prospect, and so even if he comes in at another position, you feel like one of he and Thomas will be able to emerge at corner eventually. But don't be shocked if Sanders commits AND Texas pulls the trigger on another cornerback offer.
