Let's start out with a true freshman, a player in Texas coach Tom Herman's loaded class who will have both the opportunity and the talent to do huge things right away in Austin. 

That would be California linebacker De'Gabriel Floyd, an early enrollee who is still waiting to be medically cleared for contact this spring after a neck injury suffered in high school, according to Horns247's Chip Brown

It won't matter in the long run as long as he eventually gets on the field. The 6'½", 232-pound former Westlake Christian High School standout was a major coup out of Pac-12 country, and he has the physical ability to compete right away.

The Longhorns need instant-impact guys on the second level, and Floyd will be competing with another former high-profile recruit in Ayodele Adeoye for reps. Adeoye was limited a year ago with injuries as well, and people tend to forget about his promise.

The bottom line is the 'Horns need linebackers, and this spring is big for all of them to help improve a defense that needs to get better if they're going to compete for the national title. Floyd will be fine once the season rolls around, and he's going to be a major part of coordinator Todd Orlando's defense.

His ability and work ethic will ensure he is one of the top freshman defenders in the nation.
