Garrett Gilbert is the Texas quarterback now and for a sophomore with no starts in his career, he's taking the role of grizzled veteran for the Longhorns.

With No. 2 quarterback Sherrod Harris' decision to leave the team on the eve of training camp, Gilbert and the Longhorns reported for the 2010 season with a serious lack of depth at the position where Colt McCoy spent the past four seasons winning 45 games.

Gilbert is best known for taking over for McCoy early in last season's national championship game when McCoy got hurt early in Texas' 37-21 loss to Alabama.

Harris, who would have been a fifth-year senior, has already earned his degree and left the team Friday. That leaves true freshmen Case McCoy, Colt's younger brother, and Connor Woods battling for the No. 2 spot.
