Texas Football: 7 Players to Watch in the Longhorns' Spring Game

David Ash's fractured foot will place much of the spotlight on Tyrone Swoopes, but the sophomore quarterback is just one of several Longhorns that are must-see in Saturday's Orange-White Game.

This is the program's first spring game under new coach Charlie Strong, and therefore our first real look at the direction he is taking it. There's been plenty of talk about toughness and culture change, but few have been able to physically see the difference. 

Even with the quarterback debate on hold for a few months, the game offers valuable insight. Questions surrounding the safety position, who has stepped up to replace the departed starters and how the offensive line will shape up all get their first semblance of an answer when the team takes the field.

Be sure to watch Tyrone Swoopes, but the performances of Daje Johnson and Josh Turner will be just as important to next season's results.
