Can somebody tell me what happened to these players?

Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE

I used to get excited about recruiting and NSD, but over the past couple of years I have learned not to buy all the hype surrounding recruits too much - especially on this board where 95% of our commits are "studs". We all know these kids are really good. It takes tremendous talent and athletic ability to play Div I football, especially at Texas. It takes even more than that to come in and supplant the guy ahead of you on the depth chart and play right away.

With that said, I have some players on my mind who I've expected to see on the field at some point but never did (discounting the spring game). I understand player attrition - some players get in trouble, can't make the grades, transfer, etc. And since I don't have the same insight to Texas football as some of you, I just want to know where the following players went (if they're even still on the team).

2010

Taylor Bible, DT

Chris Jones, WR

Aaron Benson, LB (I saw this guy at the spring game.. never saw him again)

Greg Daniels, DE

John Harris, WR

Traylon Shead, RB

Darius Terrell, WR

Adrian White, DB

DeAires Cotton, DT

2011

Quincy Russell, DT

Taylor Doyle, OL

Miles Onyegbule, WR (heard he was being switched to TE)

Marcus Hutchins, OL

2012

Timothy Cole, LB

Orlando Thomas, ATH

Alex Norman, DT

Bryce Cottrell, DE

Caleb Bluiett, DE

I've left out the names of 2012 players that I think redshirted this season. Considering we pretty much blew it on recruiting defensive linemen this year, preventing attrition from those positions is critical.

Be excellent to each other.
