6. Vince Young (Texas)
From the moment Vince Young was named the team’s starting quarterback midway through his redshirt freshman season, it was very apparent that the University of Texas had a very special player on their hands. After leading the Longhorns to an 11-1 record and Rose Bowl win as a redshirt sophomore, all eyes were on Young and Texas as the team that could potentially end the dynasty reigning over in Southern California.
As we all know, Young led the Longhorns to the 2005 BCS National Championship, putting up one of the most spectacular performances we’ve seen from a college athlete in history. When Young left the University of Texas as a junior, he ranked #1 among all University of Texas quarterbacks, in terms of number of wins.
