Sergio Kindle to Return for his Senior Year

According to the Dallas Morning News Sports Blog.

Somebody should alert Chief Lazy Eye up in Norman. Megatron is coming for that ass. It's probably best to go ahead and high tail it to Mo-Town where crying in press conferences is perfectly acceptable.

All-Big 12 linebacker Sergio Kindle will return to Texas for his senior season, according to his father, Johnny Walker, and high school coach, Bobby Estes.

Kindle (6-4, 239) had a breakout junior season but would not have projected as a first-round pick. In his first season under defensive coordinator Will Muschamp, Kindle had 53 tackles (14 for losses) and 10 sacks, beginning to fulfill the potential he had as one of the nation's top recruits coming out of Woodrow Wilson High.

Kindle, whose freshman and sophomore seasons were marred by injuries, returns to Austin with a list of lofty goals. He wants to help the Longhorns win a national championship, earn the Lombardi and Nagurski awards that graduating teammate Brian Orakpo claimed this season and establish himself as a first-round lock before leaving UT with a degree.

It's on.
