Even though former Texas Longhorns play caller and current quarterbacks coach Shawn Watson is still on staff in Austin, the changes made on Tuesday by head coach Charlie Strong will likely have some recruiting ramifications.

So the reaction of Longhorns quarterback commit Shane Buechele was especially important -- not only is he the key pledge in the 2016 class, he's also coming off of a strong summer and looks like the signal caller most prepared to play early at Texas in years.

Here's what Buechele had to say on Twitter:

Strong, Watson, and new play caller Jay Norvell will need to spend some time with Buechele on his visit this weekend to allay any potential concerns about the Longhorns offense moving forward, as losing the Arlington Lamar product would represent a huge blow to recruiting efforts at the position. That's because all of the top quarterbacks around the country are all currently committed -- only two of the top 25 dual-threat quarterbacks are still uncommitted, while 24 of the top 25 pro-style quarterbacks have already given verbal pledges.
