As the Texas Longhorns get set to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys in the Big 12 Championship Game on Saturday, many fans are wondering what will happen at the quarterback position upon completion of the 2023 season.
Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers is one of the many talented quarterbacks considering the NFL Draft in 2024, and while conversations surrounding Ewers have likely been about a possible return to Texas, the Texas native shot down any questions about what the future may hold.
Ewers was asked following the team’s 57-7 win over Texas Tech about his plans for the future, Ewers shrugged off speculations saying, “Right now, I’m just trying to win a Big 12 Championship. You can’t look too far ahead or you’ll miss what’s right in front of you.”
Texas quarterback room is loaded with talent behind Ewers with both Maalik Murphy and Arch Manning on the roster, but with Ewers continuing to elevate his on-the-field play, Longhorns fans are hoping to keep the sophomore signal caller around for the move to the SEC.
Despite missing games in 2023 due to an AC joint injury, Ewers has been one of the league’s best passers. The Longhorns quarterback has totaled 2,709 yards and a touchdown to interception ratio of 17-5. While Ewers isn’t necessarily known for his mobility, he added five touchdowns on the ground in his sophomore season.
With one more game on the line in the Big 12 Conference pending an invite to the College Football Playoff, Ewers will have a chance to boost his draft stock even higher should he decide to enter his name into the 2024 NFL Draft.
