As you probably heard, quarterback David Ash has decided to quit football. Longhorns coach Charlie Strong announced the news Wednesday at his bye week news conference. Several of Ash’s teammates and other key figures at Texas took to Twitter to wish Ash well.
Former Longhorns coach Mack Brown recruited Ash to Texas.
Thank You David Ash for all the hard work and effort you gave Texas FB. May God Bless You moving forward. Good Luck!

Former Longhorns basketball player Kevin Durant called Ash “a brother.”
Thank you David Ash, you gave your all to the University of Texas. I respect your decision and good luck in the future my brother

Tight end M.J. McFarland caught a touchdown pass last week from Ash’s replacement, Tyrone Swoopes.
Love you bro! @david_ash14

Wide receiver Jaxon Shipley was one of Ash’s go-to targets.
So much respect for @david_ash14. Love you bro.
