David Ash has not played football since 2014. That’s when the Texas quarterback decided to give up the sport after suffering multiple concussions.
Well, it appears that over two years later, Ash has changed his mind.
Ash originally came to Texas as part of its 2011 recruiting class under Mack Brown. He played in 25 games over his first two years in Austin, throwing for 23 touchdowns with 16 interceptions. He then missed most of the 2013 season due to a concussion, playing in only three games. In 2014, under Charlie Strong, Ash began the season as Texas starter but suffered another concussion during the team’s season opener.
It was then that he decided to give up football.
It remains to be seen what kind of interest there will be in Ash, but having a shot to perform at Texas’ pro day at least gives him a chance to show scouts what he’s capable of doing in such a setting.
