Three Texas veterans have requested to be redshirted this season, coach Mack Brown said today. The list includes safety Nolan Brewster, running back Jeremy Hills and defensive end Tevin Mims. Brown said he is unsure if he will be able to accommodate all the requests, depending on injuries, but will try to do so. Brown said Mims’ request came after he aggravated a shoulder injury in fall drills.
The requests come in the wake of Monday's initial depth chart of fall drills, which showed 13 true freshman on the Longhorns' initial depth chart of the 2010 season. Including redshirt freshmen, Texas has 18 newcomers on its initial depth chart.
