The Wichita Falls, Texas, native led Tech in receptions (84), yards (800) and TDs (11) last season. And he can be a flat-out game-breaker: In the 2011 season finale against Baylor he set a school record with 16 catches (for 151 yards and two TDs) at Cowboys Stadium.
DE DARTWAN BUSH JUNIOR
Bush tied for the Big 12 lead with four forced fumbles in 2011 and had two sacks in the spring game. Tuberville looks forward to seeing Bush and sophomore tackle Delvon Simmons boost a line that lacked depth last year.
WR MARCUS KENNARD SENIOR
The 6' 3" wideout could be the playmaker Tech needs
The Red Raiders' offense is at its best when it features a receiver who can stretch the field, and Kennard is a great candidate for the job. After spending 2010 at Butler Community College in El Dorado, Kans., Kennard only had 12 receptions for Tech in '11, but he led the team in yards per catch (15.2) and excelled in the spring game with five receptions for 97 yards and two TDs.
