That leaves senior Chris Ogbannaya, sophomore Vondrell McGee and redshirt freshman Fozzy Whittaker to battle it out.
Between all three, Texas has a total of 521 career rushing yards and the cutest name on the team.
McGee, who earned the nickname "Bulldozer" in high school, would seem the early favorite after rushing for 297 yards and eight touchdowns last season.
But Whittaker impressed in the spring with his shiftiness in tight spaces. Ogbannaya's pass-catching skills helped make him a valuable third-down player last season. He's also lost weight, shedding about 25 pounds to get down to 205.
