Texas' O-line takes another hit
AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas' offensive line has taken another significant hit after losing its most experienced starter.
Without Harrison, Estelle and senior center Dominic Espinosa, Texas now has the youngest starting offensive line in the nation with a combined five career starts. Espinosa suffered a broken ankle against North Texas and could miss the season.
Harrison, a 6-foot-8, 313-pound senior, had been suspended Texas' season opener, but Strong said Monday the lineman was going to be reinstated. The junior college transfer appeared in seven games last season.
Estelle, a 6-foot-6, 285-pound junior, made his ninth career start at right tackle against North Texas. He was ruled academically ineligible for last season's Alamo Bowl.
