Anthony Fera, Texas Longhorn.

Fera Faucet rains woe on Longhorn opponents.

The former Penn State kicker is a Longhorn now. He's immediately eligible, has two years remaining, and should solidify the Longhorn kicking game in all major phases; a kicking game previously considered to be a major question mark heading into the 2012 season. This is a major coup and an important development in complementing a strong Longhorn defense and running game. The invisible yardage of special teams don't always show up in game analysis, but it always shows up on the scoreboard.

The vital statistics:

Fera is a senior all-purpose kicking specialist who place kicked, kicked off, and punted for the Nittany Lions last year. He was 14 of 17 on field goals (a perfect 11 of 11 inside the 40) and averaged 42 yards per kick on 64 punts (18 inside the 20). His all-around performance was good enough to garner 2nd Team All Big 10 honors and 3x Big 10 Special Teams Player of The Week.

While Duke transfer Alex King, former 2nd Team All-ACC punter, gets first crack at punting duties, Fera's experience and leg give him the inside track on placekicker. Should King falter, it's nice to have insurance.

The best reason to like Fera, beyond his kicking prowess?
