The college football world moves fast. Despite the reports that Hudson Card might be named the starting quarterback based off of fall camp thus far, Quinn Ewers has officially been named the starter in Austin.
Chip Brown of Horns247 reported on Thursday that the job didn’t appear to belong to Ewers.
“IF the season started today, it would probably be Card starting for Texas because of his overall command of the offense, two sources close to the situation said,” Brown said. “Of course, the season does NOT start today, and there’s a big-time scrimmage on Saturday that Steve Sarkisian and the Texas coaches will use to help set the depth chart to determine who gets first-team reps — on both sides of the ball — leading up to the season opener against Louisiana-Monroe on Sept. 3.”
Ewers, who transferred in from Ohio State this past offseason, attended Southlake Carroll high school in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, beat out third-year signal-caller Hudson Card for the starting job.
Ever since he transferred into Texas, Ewers has been expected to be the guy for UT in 2022 and now that it is official, Texas message boards can cool off.
On Wednesday, Ewers posted a cryptic tweet saying “something’s coming” on 08/19/2022, but it didn’t appear to be tied to being named the starter. Now, with it confirmed, it appears that Ewers was giving us a hint about the news to come.
With the quarterback battle decided, Texas can now shift its focus towards building a report with Ewers and the rest of the offense. Ewers will make the first start of his collegiate career against Louisiana-Monroe on September 3 at 7:00 p.m. CT.
