Special Teams

2012 Roster Shape

William Russ (sophomore)

2012 Commitments

Nicholas Jordan, Coppell

2012 Outlook: Finished

Word from within the Texas program is that the Longhorns haven't been overly pleased with the development of William Russ as a placekicker. That meant that Texas needed to go out and pursue one of the state's top players at that position, somebody capable of coming right in and kicking in pressure situations. That somebody is Jordan, who has displayed accuracy, a sense for the clutch and the leg to drill long field goals. He was a great pickup.
