The Next Ramonce: Vondrell McGee?

Okay, so most of us are prepared for 2006 Texas football sans Ramonce Taylor, but who might step in to fill his role as a guy that is dangerous to break a long one on any touch?

Hank the Tank and Selvin Young are solid, but don't possess that elusiveness or breakaway speed.

We do know that Jamaal Charles is dangerous to break a long run, as we saw against Oklahoma, and you can be sure that the Big 12 100 meter track champion will break some long ones.

But don't count out seeing some interesting carries from incoming freshman Vondrell McGee. He's quick, elusive, fast, and could play a similar role to Ramonce Taylor in what's going to be a punishing Texas running attack.

McGee is listed at 5-10, 190, a four-star Rivals recruit from Longview known for his elusiveness and ability to dance away from tackles. But he's already been working hard in the weight room, and Rivals reports that he's already added nearly 10 pounds of muscle.

To get an idea of McGee's big play abilities, enjoy this eye-popping 90 yard run.

And for a look at a full highlight reel from his days at Longview, here's a series of clips.

The pipeline of incredible tailback talent at Texas just never dries up.
