NCAA Football 2012: Will Texas Longhorns Be A Top 25 Team?

The Texas Longhorns struggled mightily last season and much of that has to do with their spotty quarterback play. That will still be an issue for the Longhorns going forward, without a proven player on the roster at that position.

Still, the National Football Post says the Horns have enough on the defensive side of the ball to at least be a top 25 team, for whatever its worth:

Quarterback play is still the biggest issue for the Longhorns. David Ash looks like the starter for now, but will the ‘Horns be forced to use true freshman Connor Brewer? Either way, a sound rushing attack led by Malcolm Brown and a stingy Manny Diaz defense will be enough to make this squad a Top 25 team.

Ash is entering his sophomore season after throwing for 1,079 yards for four touchdowns and eight interceptions in his freshman campaign.
