Longhorns announce date of Spring game

Posted February 3rd, 2016


At the end of Charlie Strong’s national signing day press conference, Texas announced the annual spring game would take place on April 16. Kickoff time will be at 1 p.m.

Spring football practices will commence on March 7.

Texas has four early enrollees in the class of 2016. Quarterback Shane Buechele, wide receiver Collin Johnson, offensive lineman Zach Shackelford and linebacker Demarco Boyd are enrolled in class and eligible to participate in spring practices.

National signing day was a success for Charlie Strong and his coaches, as the Longhorns’ class started the day as the 32nd-ranked class nationally and ended up as high as the Top 10 by some services.
