ESPN rated Texas’s quarterback position as one of the best of the next three seasons

Texas are still looking for continuity in the quarterback position following the departure of Sam Ehlinger.

Second-year head coach Steve Sarkeesian has already hit hard on the recruiting path, dropping four-star quarterback owner Murphy from the 2022 class and former five-star quarterback Quinn Ivers via the transfer portal. It has suddenly become one of the most talented quarterback rooms in the country.

ESPN recently took a look at college football’s future quarterback rankings over the next three seasons. Recruitment, the possibility of players entering the NFL Draft early and/or entering transfer portals, coaching and depth were all taken into account.

Texas landed at No. 8 overall, behind programs such as USC, Oklahoma, Texas A&M and Ohio State. Given that the Longhorns do not have a true returning starter, this appears to be a realistic place in the rankings.

Longhorn Scouting: Texas A&M has the most stocked quarterback room in the state, but the most interesting collection in Texas. The primary contenders for the Longhorns – Hudson Card, Quinn Ivers and owner Murphy – all have freshman or sophomore eligibility. Whoever pulls out of off-season competition can guide coach Steve Sarkeesian’s offense until 2023, and possibly beyond. The spotlight is undoubtedly on Evers, who leaves his senior season of high school to attend Ohio State and returns home, where he arrived late, pocketed zero dollars and didn’t attempt a pass. Evers was one of the more decorated high school quarterback prospects in recent years, and may be a natural fit to operate the Sarkeesian system. Card opened the 2021 season as a starter and benefited from a year under Sarkeesian. He’s recruited from Lake Travis High School in Austin as ESPN’s No. 40 in the 2020 class overall—not too far in Evers’ category. Although Card must navigate the Ewers hype surrounding the Texas program, he also has the opportunity to outshine her and win the job. Murphy is an ESPN 300 prospect from California, which is likely to be a good insurance option this fall. — Adam Rittenberg

While Evers has gotten a lot of attention this season, Longhorn has to feel comfortable with two other talented signal-callers in the position in case Evers gets hurt or doesn’t live up to expectations for some reason.

When you take into account the possibility that Texas is also in a solid position to land five-star Ark Manning in the 2023 class, Longhorn should have the depth and talent in the quarterback for the foreseeable future.
