The battle between Cody Thomas and Justice Hansen will go into the fall.
Thomas, a redshirt freshman, was 5 of 9 for 52 yards and a touchdown in the spring game. Hansen, a true freshman, was 4 for 8 for 58 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.
Hansen didn’t enter the game until well after the others had played.
“I thought they did a nice job,” coach Bob Stoops said of the two. “They threw nice balls. They didn’t throw any awful passes right to a guy. They did a nice job letting the game come to them for the most part.”
JOHNSON BANGED UP
Junior Cortez Johnson has been in a tight position battle with sophomore Dakota Austin for the open cornerback spot opposite Zack Sanchez.
But Johnson had to sit out Saturday’s game with a lingering injury.
Stoops said Johnson’s injury was minor, and he was nearly able to play.
Austin had three tackles Saturday.
Stoops said Julian Wilson, who sat out the spring recovering from shoulder surgery, could play either cornerback or safety this fall after spending most of the last two seasons at nickelback.
