Who are the five high school quarterbacks in the 2020 recruiting cycle that are worth targeting for the Texas football program?
The 2020 recruiting cycle is in full swing for the Texas football program following the National Signing Day which officially put the 2019 class in the books.
An emerging need for the 2020 Texas football recruiting class is at quarterback, since current starter Sam Ehlinger will he entering his junior campaign this year. And, while having the former four-star dual-threat quarterback signee and early enrollee Roschon Johnson looks like a solid option to run this offense after Ehlinger’s time is done, the talent does need to keep rolling in.
The 2020 recruiting class for Texas football does have one quarterback commit in line already. We are keeping that in mind when formulating the big board for the 2020 Texas football recruiting class at this position. The sole quarterback commit in the 2020 class is four-star dual-threat Austin native Hudson Card.
It’s still early in the 2020 recruiting cycle so anything can happen, but having a pledge like Card in the mix that seems fully committed to the program and is from right in the backyard of the Texas football program means good things for retention. The situation with Card is not as it was with former four-star pro-style California native quarterback Cameron Rising.
What Texas football was able to haul in from the 2019 recruiting class was almost the ideal scenario, with Johnson and a very potent three-star hometown pro-style quarterback preferred walk-on that is much more skilled than you usually get for that.
Here’s a look at the five targets at quarterback among the 2020 recruits that the Texas Longhorns should pursue the most to haul in a well-rounded class.
