The changing of the guard in Texas is reflected in the 16 semifinalists up for the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award announced Tuesday, as six players from Baylor and Texas A&M are included, but only one from the Longhorns.
Texas A&M wide receiver Mike Evans, Baylor wide receivers Antwan Goodley and Tevin Reese and running back Lache Seastrunk also made the cut, while running back Johnathan Gray is the only player from Texas included.

The other players recognized include Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro, Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Kolton Browning, East Carolina quarterback Shane Carden, Minnesota running back David Cobb, Missouri quarterback James Franklin, SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert, Arizona State running back Marion Grice, SMU wide receiver Jeremy Johnson, and West Virginia running back Charles Sims.
