Longhorns Daily News: Texas’ Cedric Baxter gets nod as potential 2023 impact freshman

NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Days Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The Texas Longhorns might have an easy time replacing outgoing running back Bijan Robinson, who’s expected to go as high as the first round in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The ease, of course, comes in the form of true freshman Cedric Baxter. 247Sports recently noted Baxter as one of their 13 potential impact freshmen heading into the 2023 season.

From 247Sports, per Josh Pate: “Cedric Baxter was the No. 1 running back in this class. Texas lost some guys, and the guys they do have on the roster have been out at various points, which has given Cedric Baxter time to get some very, very valuable reps in the spring. A guy like him, especially at the position he plays, will be able to transition into college life fairly effectively as a freshman. But when you’re also giving him extra reps in spring, it becomes all the more likely that he’s about to be a player this year.”
