David Ash Is Performing Well In Spring, Looks To Be Quarterback For Texas In 2012

The position to watch this spring for the Texas Longhorns is the quarterback spot. The two contenders are David Ash and Case McCoy, or even maybe true freshman Connor Brewer who is taking part in spring practice. Last year, Texas had a rotating door at the quarterback position with Ash and McCoy splitting time.

With spring practice just getting underway and with many practices to go Cedric Golden of the Austin American-Statesman is saying that Ash is the clear choice to be Texas' starting quarterback in 2012:

Ash is the guy and it's not even close. This shouldn't be a Simms-Applewhite replay, where Mack was torn between which one to play. If early indications mean anything, Ash will be the man behind center when the Horns open next season against Wyoming.

Christian Cornoa of the Dallas Morning News feels the same and sees Ash as being the starting quarterback:

If Friday's practice was any indication of what the depth chart will look like at quarterback, Ash will be the starter, McCoy his backup, and freshman Connor Brewer -- who completed a 10-yard pass in his only action during 11-on-11 drills -- should be the third-string signal-caller.

Texas is still extremely early in their spring practices and things can change, also to keep in mind is that there will be no post-spring depth chart announced which means that the quarterback battle will likely go into fall camp with a decision probably being made about a week before the season opener against the Wyoming Cowboys.
