Texas Longhorns quarterback Connor Brewer was arrested on Friday night for public intoxication and minor in possession, according to Orangebloods.com's Geoff Ketchum. The redshirt freshman from Scottsdale, AZ sat out this past season, and is expected to compete for the backup quarterback spot behind David Ash in 2013. The school has not issued a statement.
Brewer's arrest just adds to the strange situation going on with the Texas football program, who unexpectedly announced co-offensive coordinator Major Applewhite had sex with a student in January of 2009. Applewhite himself played quarterback for the Longhorns from 1998-2001 and has served as an offensive assistant for Texas, Syracuse, Rice, and Alabama. Many thought that Applewhite could be a possible successor to Mack Brown as the head coach at Texas, but that scenario could be in question now.
