Former Longhorn and NFL player Donald Hakwins on new commit Andrej Karic

Donald Hawkins was a JUCO offensive line transfer on the 2012 and 2013 teams. Though he only spent two years in Austin, he started 24 games. He was a good player on some not-so-great but decent teams. He went undrafted and bounced around the league on a number of teams before a concussion sidelined him in 2017. He's since been cleared and the 27-year-old awaits being drafted into the XFL ahead of making another run at the NFL.

He’s a Longhorn though and through, just like the rest of the Johnson family. But Collin has his own small spin on 1-0 that he applies to his on field exploits and his off-field ventures.
