The 2012 College Football Hall of Fame class will be announced Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. CT and there are several candidates from the field of 76 who played ball in the Lone Star State.

Check out the full list of candidates right here.

The most noteworthy possible inductee has to be Eric Dickerson from the Southern Methodist Mustangs. Of course, Dickerson was apart of the huge pay-for-play scandal that set the SMU athletic program back for years when they were eventually hit with the death penalty.

Aside from that, the running back out of rural Sealy High School gained 4,450 yards on 790 carries in his college career, which lasted from 1979-1982.

A pair of former Texas Longhorns are on the list of candidates as well - Bob McKay (offensive tackle 1968-69) and Jerry Gray (defensive back 1981-84). Also, former Baylor Bears quarterback Don Trull (1961-63) is up for possible Hall of Fame induction.
