The Longhorns will de­pend on a rel­a­tively large num­ber of play­ers this sea­son who won’t need a GPS to find their way around Austin.

The ros­ter in­cludes 13 play­ers from the metro area. Sev­eral are ex­pected to play vi­tal roles, in­clud­ing safety Blake Gideon of Le­an­der, wide re­ceiver James Kirk­endoll of Round Rock, de­fen­sive ends Alex Okafor of Pflugerville and Tevin Mims of Stony Point, and place­kicker/punter Justin Tucker of West­lake.

Oh yeah, there’s also that other guy, sopho­more quar­ter­back Gar­rett Gil­bert of Lake Travis. He might be kind of im­por­tant, too.
