All three players were freshmen this season.

Bonner played seven games in 2012 before being suspended indefinitely in November for a violation of team rules. Phillips and Taylor each played in one game.

Bonner was rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals and ESPN and a three-star recruit by 247Sports and Scout. Taylor was rated a four-star prospect by Scout and a three-star recruit by Rivals, ESPN and 247Sports. Phillips was a consensus four-star recruit.
