Rivals.com 2009 All-Big 12 freshman team

Texas A&M and Oklahoma were good enough to reach bowl games this season, but both have reason to aim much higher in upcoming years.

The Aggies and Sooners combined to fill 11 positions on the Rivals.com Big 12 all-freshman team. A&M running back Christine Michael is the offensive freshman of the year and Missouri defensive end Aldon Smith is the top first-year defender.

The team is lacking a kicker, but no first-year player stood out at the position this season.
