The Texas Longhorns planed to have David Ash at quarterback, but concussion-like symptoms kept him out for most of the year. The symptoms stemmed from a concussion he sustained in the second game of the year against BYU. He has finally been cleared to resume football activities in time for spring practices.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Texas junior quarterback David Ash has been cleared to resume full football activities, the school announced Saturday evening. He is expected to be a full participant in spring practice.

Colt McCoy’s brother Case replaced Ash as the starter last season. In the 2014 season Ash is expected to start but he will have to compete with freshman quarterback Tyrone Swoopes for the starting job. With a new system from head coach Charlie Strong, Ash might not have a leg up in this race.

“You have two good players there right now, now it’s just about developing this position,” Strong said. “It’s the leader of your team and has to make a lot of decisions for you at a critical time.”
