Texas Spring Game 2012: Quarterback Play Is Slowly Improving

The Texas Longhorns completed their spring practices with the annual Orange/White spring game on Sunday. The scrimmage featured a lot of the same young talent that struggled this past season to an 8-5 record.

The main focus was on the quarterback position which has been a complete mess ever since Colt McCoy moved on. The first team reps were split between David Ash and Case McCoy with Connor Brewer getting the third-team reps. Head coach Mack Brown said that if he is able to that he would like to have Brewer redshirt in 2012.

Even though McCoy scored a touchdown pass and connected on a nice deep pass to tight end M.J. McFarland. Ash was more consistent but not great however he looks to have the inside edge over McCoy to be named the starter. McCoy had two passes intercepted in the endzone and nearly had a third pass which was tipped.

Offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin talked about the quarterback play:

The best thing to come out of the spring game was that there were no injuries.
