Steve Sarkisian confirms Texas’ starting QB for 2024 season

Steve Sarkisian addressed reporters on Wednesday, clarifying the starting quarterback position for the Texas Longhorns’ upcoming 2024 season.

Sarkisian explicitly stated that Quinn Ewers will be the team’s starting quarterback. Ewers held this role prominently during the previous season, despite facing some injury setbacks. Across 12 games, Ewers showcased his skills by throwing for 3,479 yards, 22 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions, while also recording 5 rushing touchdowns, leading Texas to an impressive 12-2 record.

Arch Manning, on the other hand, predominantly served as the team’s third-string QB last season. He briefly moved up to the No. 2 spot for the College Football Playoff game against Washington following Maalik Murphy’s departure from the program via transfer.

While there may be speculation or inquiries regarding Manning’s potential as a starter, it appears evident that Texas intends to stick with Ewers. This decision is supported by Ewers’ strong performance last season and the positive outcomes he achieved for the Longhorns.

For enthusiastic Texas fans, Steve Sarkisian’s leadership brings promise of an electrifying offense.
