Texas coach Steve Sarkisian met with reporters on Tuesday as the 2022 season rapidly approaches, and of course he addressed the high-profile battle under center entering fall camp for the Longhorns. Sophomore Hudson Card and redshirt freshman Quinn Ewers will be duking it out for the starting job, and Sarkisian expressed his excitement over the two viable options to lead his high-powered offense.
"I'm excited for both of these guys," Sarkisian said. "They're both great teammates, both are really coachable, both highly competitive, highly driven young men that both would love to take the field when the team takes the field on Sept. 3."
Sarkisian went on to admit he does not have a timeline to name a starting quarterback, though he did play coy when asked the question.
"I think I have an idea in my head," Sarkisian said. "But I'm not going to tell you guys."
At some point, however, either Ewers or Card will emerge as the winner and ultimately take the first snaps when the Longhorns face off against ULM to begin the season. This program desperately needs a shot in the arm after Sarkisian led Texas to the worst season for a first-year coach on the 40 Acres since Dana X. Bible in 1937, and selecting the right option would provide just that.
Here's everything you need to know about the Longhorns' quarterback battle as Ewers and Card gear up for the competition this month.
