UT interested in LaBradford Barnes

AUSTIN, Texas -- Depth at quarterback was a luxury for the Longhorns just a few weeks ago. But that has drastically changed in the time it has taken Texas to improve to 3-0 on the season.

In August, fourth-string quarterback Connor Wood transferred to Colorado.

This week, former starter Garrett Gilbert had shoulder surgery and is on the shelf for the remainder of the season. His future as a Longhorn beyond 2011 is anyone's guess.
