While at the University of Texas, Augustin was named to the 2008 Academic All-Big 12 First Team. Augustin enjoys playing the drums and is active in real estate.

He was an All-American First Team honoree in 2007-08 and led the Longhorns to the Big 12 tournament final (losing to Kansas), where he was named to the All-Big 12 tournament First Team. As the postseason went on, Augustin helped lead Texas to the 2008 NCAA Tournament Elite Eight.
