Texas Football: Longhorns QB David Ash granted medical redshirt by NCAA

Earlier on Friday evening, it was announced that projected Texas Longhorns QB David Ash would be missing the rest of the spring season with a fractured foot, however he will be ready for fall camp.

But, that’s not all the news that Ash would be involved in on Friday as Jeremy Fowler over at CBS is reporting that the NCAA has granted Ash a medical redshirt following the concussions he suffered from that derailed his 2013 season. Now, Ash has two more seasons of eligibility in Austin.

While Ash is projected to be the starter once again, this time for new head coach Charlie Strong, getting back under center wasn’t going to be easy to being with as he’s going to receive some stiff competition from sophomore phenom Tyrone Swoopes.

Then, there’s the possible transfer in of former USC quarterback Max Wittek, who is said to be leaning heavily toward making the move to Austin.

But with Ash now granted the extra season, Wittek may be re-thinking his decision.
