Texas coach Charlie Strong said his quarterback competition is "wide open."
Monday marked the Longhorns' first spring practice, with senior QB Tyrone Swoopes a slight early favorite for the starting job over soph Jerrod Heard and true freshman Shane Buechele. "It'll be enough reps where we'll know fairly quickly who the guy will be," Strong said. "I think you'll be able to see it." Strong indicated that redshirt freshmen Kai Locksley and Matthew Merrick will also be even fair looks as the team transitions to a new, Baylor-style, up-tempo offense under former Tulsa OC Sterlin Gilbert. "Sterlin, whoever he's comfortable with, he'll be able to know that right away," Strong said. "We'll give the guys enough reps to where he'll be able to place them in that position. Then he can just say, 'Hey, this is the guy we've got to go with.'" Mar 8 - 3:03 PM
