3 Burning Questions For Texas Football In 2015

The Texas Longhorns have plenty of optimism to go around heading into Charlie Strong’s second year in Austin, but there’s also plenty of questions to be had around the program heading into the upcoming season. Here’s 3 Burning Questions For TheTexas Longhorns Following Spring Football.

1) Who will start at QB for Texas?

Tyrone Swoopes and Jerrod Heard remain engaged in competition for the starting quarterback job, but there’s been murmurs around the program that a potential graduate transfer like Ohio State’s Braxton Miller or Notre Dame's Everett Golson (who has already announced plans to transfer) could emerge as a potential option. For now it’s safe to assumer that Swoopes and Heard will duke it out for the job, but keep your eyes peeled for a potential out-of-house candidate.

2) Will youth be served on the defense?

There’s so many great young options on the defense (including five-star game-changer Malik Jefferson), and that could make for a very young starting eleven heading into Week 1 of the college football season. Charlie Strong has hopes that returning players like Timothy Cole and Peter Jinkens will step up and take a spot, but this could very well be the start of a major youth movement on defense.

3) Is the offensive line ready to go?

Joe Wickline has some work to do to get the O-line together, with a muddled depth chart of experienced players and talented youth to sort through. With no clear idea of just who the starting five on the line will be, there’s a little bit of nervousness in Austin when it comes to who might be protecting the eventual starting QB.
