D J Monroe is a sophomore RB for the Longhorns who so far has only one carry this season (he rushed for 14 yards). The kid is a speedster and a fan favorite among the Longhorn faithful. At 5-9, 171 he sounds about the size of our Damien Thigpen. They have been clamoring for him (similar manner we have been clamoring for Josh Smith, Randal Carroll yadi, yada, yada).
Per the link from Barking Carnival (which is another excellent Texas fanblog that you all need to be reading this week) Monroe has been getting a lot of reps this week in practice. Just something to keep an eye out for on Saturday.
