Russell to Return
Probably. According to the Austin American-Statesman, Kyle Russell is "pretty definite" that he will play his junior season on the 40 Acres. Russell joins a number of prominent Longhorn baseball players returning to join the 2008 squad that will seemingly have no excuses for not having a big year. The Horns get Russell back but lose starting pitchers James Russell and Adrian Alaniz as well as third baseman Bradley Suttle. Football starts in less than 3 weeks.
