Another former Texas player trying to make a comeback: RB Johnathan Gray. The former No. 2 overall recruit graduated a year ago, but a torn Achilles during his draft prep killed his chances of catching on with a team. Gray looked good today and is hoping to earn a tryout with an NFL team.

Ex-Texas QB David Ash has been out of the game for two years but participated in Texas' pro day today as a quarterback and punter. Ash had ended his career in 2014 due to concussion symptoms but gained medical clearance to try playing again after discovering a migraine issue had caused those symptoms.

Former Texas QB Tyrone Swoopes worked out at tight end during today's pro day and ran a 4.65 in the 40 after checking in at 6-foot-4 and 247 pounds. Swoopes has heard from several NFL teams during this draft process and could be an athletic project worthy of a late-round flier.

Former Texas RB D'Onta Foreman said he had to get serious about his diet during the NFL draft process. The nation's leading rusher played around 245-249 pounds last season but said he ate whatever he wanted. He trimmed down to 234 for today's pro day thanks to a steady diet of salmon, brown rice and vegetables. Foreman admitted cutting out ranch dressing was tough, but he's in impressive shape these days.

Big day for former Texas RB D'Onta Foreman at his pro day. Since he was held out of the NFL combine for precautionary reasons after a doctor found a small stress fracture in his foot, Foreman came in 100 percent healthy today and ran in the 4.41 to 4.48 range in the 40-yard dash. That's a quality time for a 234-pound back coming off a 2,000-yard rushing season.

Texas announced RB Chris Warren III (hamstring) and C Zach Shackelford (ankle) will miss practice time due to injuries suffered during today's scrimmage. Right tackle Brandon Hodges will also miss time while he focuses on academics, and backup RB Tristian Houston is out with an ankle injury. Their running back depth will definitely be tested now.

Texas safety John Bonney after three spring practices and three straight seven-loss seasons: "I think we need to prove to this staff that we don't have a bunch of 5-7 guys. We need to prove to them we have very good athletes and very good football players."

Texas coach Tom Herman on pursuing a grad transfer at quarterback (LSU's Brandon Harris) even though he has promising young QBs Shane Buechele and Sam Ehlinger: "We gotta win. Lost seven games three straight years around here. If a grad transfer is better than those two and can beat them out, then we'll worry about their growth next spring." Herman said his QBs understand the situation and need for competition.

Max Olson ESPN Staff Writer 

Texas QB Matthew Merrick has decided to leave the program and focus on academics. The third-year sophomore was the Longhorns' No. 3 QB this spring. We'll see if that means Jerrod Heard moves back from WR to QB in practice today. Texas is also pursuing LSU grad transfer Brandon Harris.
