Michael Brewer's injury has allowed preferred walk-on Baker Mayfield a shot at the starting job.
True freshman Davis Webb started preseason workouts battling Michael Brewer for the starting job. Now it appears he's battling another Lake Travis product.
Baker Mayfield is considered a preferred walk-on but was recruited by plenty Division I schools. He reportedly received scholarship offers from Rice, New Mexico and Florida Atlantic but held out for an offer from TCU that never came.
Mayfield threw for more than 6,200 yards and 87 touchdowns in two seasons at Lake Travis and led the school to the 2011 4A state title.
