NFL Media Analyst notes that Tyrone Swoopes is an "erratic passer still mastering the nuances of the passing game."
"Swoopes, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound sophomore, is a talented athlete with exceptional size and running skills, but he's an erratic passer still mastering the nuances of the passing game," Brooks wrote. In the second start of his career, Swoopes will face a UCLA defense that scored three defensive touchdowns in their opener. Brooks notes that UCLA "features a host of athletic defenders along the front line." Sep 12 - 2:27 PM

NFL Media Analyst Bucky Brooks notes that it's "a cause of concern" for Texas sophomore QB Tyrone Swoopes, without three starters who are responsible for protecting him.

"Whenever an offensive line loses three starters in a week, it is a cause of concern, particularly when the front line is responsible for protecting a young quarterback (Tyrone Swoopes) poised to make his first collegiate start," Brooks wrote. The young Longhorns prospect will be without lineman Kennedy Estelle, Desmond Harrison and Dominic Espinosa, who will all be sidelined this week. Brooks adds that, "it could be a rough night for the Longhorns against an experienced BYU defense that brings tremendous pressure at the point of attack."

Texas sophomore QB Tyrone Swoopes will make his first start against BYU.

"I'm very confident in Tyrone. I am," head coach Charlie Strong said. "I'm confident with any player on this football team." Swoopes was very much a reserve last year, totaling five completions on 13 attempts while taking two sacks. He added 79 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Texas HC Charlie Strong told reporters sophomore QB Tyrone Swoopes "is the clear No. 2 quarterback."

David Ash is entrenched as the starter, but as we've seen there is no lock for him to play in every game. Swoopes only played in five games last season and completed five of 13 attempts for 26 yards, adding 79 rushing yards and a touchdown. He could grab the starting job in 2015.

Texas freshman QB Tyrone Swoopes could play against Kansas State if junior David Ash is held out, according to head coach Bob Stoops.

Junior Case McCoy earned the start last week against Ole Miss, but Longhorn fans have been itching to see Swoopes. The freshman looked solid in the school's spring game, and Mack Brown might not have the luxury of redshirting him. Swoopes did log more carries (118) than pass completions (81) as a high school senior.

Texas freshman QB Tyrone Swoopes has been limited in practice by a sore hamstring, according to Longhorns coach Mack Brown.

Swoopes looked great in the spring game, but Texas has the depth at quarterback to redshirt him, if they so desire. With David Ash entrenched as starter and Case McCoy the ostensible No. 2, Swoopes, a four-star athlete in the Class of 2013, is in a battle with Connor Brewer and Jalen Overstreet for third-string duties. Swoopes, who logged more carries (118) than pass completions (81) as a high school senior, will need more time with new quarterbacks coach Major Applewhite before Brown will feel comfortable handing over the keys to the offense. If the 6-foot-4, 245 pounder plays in 2013, it will be in sub-packages which utilize his unique blend of size and speed.
