Texas football gets the final practice of the week in on March 29

While spring ball started less than two weeks ago, with the first day of practice taking place on March 19, it feels like we're still learning a lot about some of the rising players on both sides of the ball entering this weekend.

Through the first six or so spring practices, we've heard plenty about the depth and talent for the Longhorns on each side of the ball. There has also been plenty of buzz regarding the young players, especially the true freshman early enrollees, coming out of practice in the last couple of weeks.

It's also noteworthy that the Longhorns are likely to have the first scrimmage of spring camp next weekend.

Here are three takeaways from the Friday spring practice for the Longhorns on March 29.

Quinn Ewers continues to be pinpoint in throwing drills

There's been nothing but good things to say from the various practice reports and buzz coming out of spring ball concerning the performances of redshirt junior quarterback Quinn Ewers. The maturity and leadership Ewers displays as one of the returning upperclassmen starters on offense for Texas this offseason is more apparent than ever before.

"You can feel Year Three Quinn. You can feel Year Two Arch. Just kind of the operation of it. The anxiety lessens year to year of 'What are we doing next? What does this look like? They're both doing a really nice job. They're both in a phase in their progression systematically but also maturity of players that have been in the program."

Orangebloods reported (subscriber content) that Ewers "received a lot of praise for his performance" during the Friday spring practice on March 29. He reportedly had nice passes in team drills to new transfer wide receiver and junior Isaiah Bond in practice on March 29.

The connection between Ewers and Bond has been really impressive from the jump this spring. Their chemistry reportedly reminds some in and around the program of Ewers' connection last season with junior wide receiver Xavier Worthy.

We've already seen plenty of highlights this spring of Ewers hitting Bond in stride in passing drills. It looks like this will be one of the really special quarterback to wide receiver connections in the SEC this upcoming season.
