3. Quarterback is set for a long time
This 2019 Texas football recruiting class is going to have a few signees that will make an impact up until the 2022 or 2023 season. Among those long-term impact signees was mainly a group of players that will fill in the skill positions for the Horns for the better part of the next three or four seasons.
Head coach Tom Herman didn’t need more than one quarterback signee in this class. Since he has sophomore Sam Ehlinger, junior Shane Buechele, and the pair of true freshmen Cameron Rising and Casey Thompson already on campus, he’s mostly set at the position. Ehlinger is the set starter for the next year or two. Rising could be the answer after that.
Texas has so much quarterback talent lined up to make its way to the Forty Acres for the next two recruiting cycles. Four-star dual-threat quarterback Roschon Johnson was the only signee at this position in the class, but he’s a very talented prospect. Johnson is rated as the nation’s No. 4 dual-threat quarterback.
For the 2020 Texas football recruiting class, the quarterback position already has a strong presence. Four-star hometown dual-threat quarterback Hudson Card is one of the few commits in that class. The line of quarterback talent for this program doesn’t seem to be dying off any time soon with the amount of highly touted recruits signed and/or committed to Herman.
