Easter has passed and after having to entertain family and friends, it was difficult to get grades done. But now, it’s time to grade the Texas Longhorns spring game and see how each position group did.


David Ash made some good passes but also had some questionable decision making on some passes (both of his interceptions). A solid day, but nothing spectacular. The real show was the three freshmen quarterbacks. Tyrone Swoopes captured the imagination of Longhorns fans with his elusiveness and his size. Connor Brewer showed that he isn’t going away without a fight. Jalen Overstreet showed his quickness but really didn’t get a good look at his arm. Overall a solid day.

Grade: B

Running Backs:

Jonathan Gray solidified himself as the number 1 back. Malcolm Brown was MIA but Joe Bergeron showed he can make some moves and be a valuable part of the rotation and not just a short yardage back. All 3 need to be healthy because no one else besides those 3 impressed me.

Grade: B+

Wide Receivers:

With Jaxon Shipley out, much of the work in the spring game went to the younger receivers. They didn’t disappoint. Bryant Jackson, Josh Harris and Kendall Sanders all showed flashes of greatness. Mike Davis showed why he’s the Longhorns’s top target. This was the most impressive group during the spring game.

Grade: A

Tight Ends:

MJ McFarland had 2 catches on the opening drive but not much else after that. Geoff Swaim really showed his versatility in this offense and I was wrong about him. He will be a valuable addition to this team.

Grade: B-

Offensive line

Holes opened up for the running game (against the second team defense). They protected the quarterback but again, the second team defense isn’t Alabama. They did a decent job but nothing spectacular.

Grade: C
