Texas Football: Analyzing Pros and Cons of  Starting Case McCoy

The Texas Longhorns and head coach Mack Brown will have quite the decision to make this fall with their quarterback situation.

After Garrett Gilbert transferred, the job fell squarely on the shoulders of junior Case McCoy and sophomore David Ash.

McCoy was a 3-star recruit in 2010 and part of the third-rated recruiting class that year. Only USC and Florida had better recruiting classes.

Everyone knew McCoy would be headed to Texas, even after the Longhorns signed Gilbert, a 5-star recruit in 2009. 

A program that is built on tradition fit the McCoy family tradition perfectly.

Then, in 2011, the Longhorns brought in another 3-star quarterback in Ash. Ash was part of another strong recruiting class that was again third in the country.

On paper, Ash and McCoy are eerily similar. On the field, it's the same story. 

While Brown hasn't named a starting quarterback, a good portion of Longhorn fans would prefer Ash be the signal caller.

McCoy has put on 15 lbs this offseason in an attempt to get his starting spot back. We will see how that affects his mobility and throwing abilities.

Regardless, here are the pros and cons to McCoy being named the Longhorns' starting quarterback for 2012-13.
