Report: Strong names David Ash Texas QB starter heading into fall
David Ash will head into Texas's fall camp as the Longhorns' starting quarterback, Charlie Strong said at Big 12 Media Days.
Charlie Strong reportedly didn't wait long before letting David Ash -- and the rest of the world -- know where the Texas quarterback stands heading into fall camp.
Ash was fully medically cleared to play Monday, and per Rivals, Strong said at Big 12 media days Tuesday the junior will begin practice as the Longhorns' starting quarterback. After throwing for 19 touchdowns and 2,699 yards in 2012, Ash missed all but three games in 2013 after suffering a concussion.
Per Chip Brown, Strong said sophomore Tyrone Swoopes and freshman Jerrod Heard will still "be given the opportunity to compete" in fall camp. Swoopes appeared in five games as a true freshman in 2013.
So it's not a lock yet that Ash will be under center when the Longhorns open their season Aug. 30 against North Texas ... but given that he boasts far more experience than his competitors and has enough confidence from his head coach to make a proclamation like this one before July is even out, it seems awfully, awfully likely.
