Hometown: Austin, TX (Anderson)
HS Rating: NR

Height: 6-foot-2

An excellent student, Ryan was a first team Academic All-Big 12 selection in 2007 and is also a five-time member of Texas’ Athletics Director’s Honor Roll.

Tray Allen

Name: Tray Allen #56
Position: Offensive Tackle
Hometown: Grand Prairie, TX (South GP)
HS Rating: Star ratingStar ratingStar ratingStar ratingStar rating

Height: 6-foot-5
Weight: 320 lbs
Class: Sophomore


Tray Allen was the premier recruit in the 2007 class. A dominant offensive lineman in the mold of Justin Blalock and probably the most upside of any lineman signed in the last several years by the Longhorns. Lined up at offensive tackle as a true freshman but might be more suited to play inside and that’s where his NFL future likely lies. He has the chance to be great in pass protection and a dominant run blocker for the Horns.

Played in 9 games on the line and special teams as a true freshman.

Ben Alexander

Name: Ben Alexander #92
Position: Defensive Tackle
Hometown: Anderson, SC (T.L. Hanna)
HS Rating: Star ratingStar ratingStar rating

Height: 6-foot-0
Weight: 310 lbs
Class: Junior


The rare out-of-state recruit for the Horns, Ben Alexander lacked ideal size but was still heavily recruited by the ACC and SEC schools in the area even after committing to Texas. By the end of the recruiting process he held offers from Georgia, Florida State, Notre Dame, and other national powers.

Alexander attended TL Hanna High School, the same school as Radio from the popular Disney movie. At Hanna he was a two time first-team all-state defensive tackle and also athletic enough to play fullback and tight end.
