Editor's note: This is the first part of a weeklong series breaking down Texas' most important spring position battles when the Longhorns begin practice in two weeks. Moving on: Texas is losing, statistically, one of the best wide receivers in its program's history in Mike Davis.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Mike Davis and Jaxon Shipley aren't practicing, and that just might be a good thing. As strange as it sounds, Texas' top two wide receivers spending the first week of fall camp sidelined ended up proving beneficial for the Longhorns offense.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Each week, I look at a few topics around the Texas Longhorns and college football. First down: Few O-linemen in 2014 class Expect Texas to concentrate on the 2015 offensive line class -- it already has three rising juniors committed -- and to stick with one or two offensive linemen in the 2014 class.
AUSTIN, Texas -- Time and again over the past two years, Texas coach Mack Brown has been true to his word: The best players, no matter the age or experience level, will play. That has led to 34 true freshmen -- the most in FBS -- hitting the field in the past two seasons.
