Big news out of the University of Texas Longhorns football program.
Head coach Steve Sarkisian dropped some major news about quarterbacks Arch Manning & Quinn Ewers on Thursday.
According to Sarkisian, Manning will not be competing to be the team’s starting quarterback next season.
Manning was the top recruit of the 2023 class but played behind Quinn Ewers and Maalik Murphy as a true freshman, appearing in only two games and attempting only five passes.
Ewers and the Longhorns had a successful 2023 season as they won the Big 12 title and made an appearance in the College Football Playoff which resulted in a loss to Washington.
According to the Austin American-Statesman, Sarkisian doesn’t believe Ewers is a finished product.
“I don’t think that Quinn was a finished product yet. And I think there’s there’s plenty of room for growth and improvement in development in his game, going into year three,” Sarkisian said. “I do think his experience, his maturity are all going to be things he can benefit from.”
Of course, Longhorns fans are still eager to see Manning, who is the nephew of NFL legends Peyton and Eli Manning, in action but they will need to exercise some patience.
