Charlie Strong Praises True Freshman Quarterback Shane Buechele After Impressive Spring Game

The Texas Longhorns may very well start a true freshman at quarterback this season, especially if today's spring game was indicative of the race at that position. Shane Buechele, a former four-star player out of Arlington, took more snaps than senior Tyrone Swoopes, and definitely made the most of his opportunities.
