AUSTIN, Texas -- There was a time not too long ago around Texas that the quarterback was not a liability, but an asset.

He was a player who could pass and run. He was the one who kept defenses guessing and off balance. The Texas quarterback was not just the best player on his team but one of the best players in the nation.

That six-year run ended in 2009, when Colt McCoy exhausted his eligibility. Texas took a step toward starting another such run when it secured the commitment of Tyrone Swoopes (Whitewright, Texas/Whitewright), arguably the top quarterback in the state and possibly the country.
