Recruiting Capsule: Quarterback

With the transfer of two of the Longhorns' four signal callers, quarterback became a huge position of need for the 2012 class.

2012 Roster Shape

Case McCoy (junior); David Ash (sophomore)

2012 Commitments

Connor Brewer, Scottsdale (Ariz.) Chaparral; Jalen Overstreet, Tatum

2012 Outlook: Finished

Not only did the Texas staff grab its top target at quarterback in Brewer, but the Longhorns grabbed an excellent later addition in Overstreet, whose skill set is totally different. Brewer is a high-level pocket passer who makes great decisions and is accurate. Overstreet is more of a dual-threat type who will give offensive coordinator Bryan Harsin scheme versatility. Overstreet is also athletic enough to switch positions if needed. So not only is Texas back to four quarterbacks, but all four are underclassmen.
