Just a few days away from the start of fall camp for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Texas football program, the fans on the Forty Acres are getting ready to see what happens during the looming quarterback competition. This quarterback competition for Texas in fall camp is set to take place between redshirt freshman Quinn Ewers and junior Hudson Card.

Most of the hype pegs the former Ohio State Buckeyes transfer and ex-Texas commit Ewers as the projected starter for the Longhorns in Week 1 against Louisiana-Monroe at home on Sep. 3. The common school of thought is that Sark and the Longhorns weren’t going to go out and Ewers in the manner they did out of the NCAA Transfer Portal without wanting him to be the starter right away in 2022.

Moreover, the potential for this Texas offense if Ewers does live up to the hype this fall is absolutely mind-boggling. Texas has so much talent at the skill positions that it feels like Ewers could be the connecting piece that really takes this group to new heights.

Ewers’ fit in this Sark offense could also really open up the playbook this season. And JD PicKell of On3 talked about how Ewers is really “perfect” for this Texas offense in 2022.

PicKell cites the crazy arm talent of Ewers and how effective he could be in getting the ball into the hands of the multitude of Texas’ playmakers at the skill positions this fall as to why he is “perfect” for this offense.

This all makes sense if Ewers is able to win the starting job coming out of fall camp and at least come close to living up to the hype this season. Ewers doesn’t need to fulfill that massive five-star quarterback hype right away for him to really open up the offensive playbook for Sark and the Longhorns.

If Ewers can even marginally improve the production that Texas gets from the quarterback position this fall, that should take this offense to another level compared to last season. And PicKell talks about this in his quick analysis of Ewers’ fit with the Texas offense.

He mentioned how Sark didn’t necessarily have a poor scheme on offense last season, he just didn’t have the right personnel leading the way at the skill positions.

Texas finished up last season with a record of 5-7 (3-6 Big 12), missing out on bowl season for the first time since 2016. Ewers and the Longhorns will face a difficult non-conference schedule that opens up against ULM on Sep. 3 and also includes the Alabama Crimson Tide and UTSA Roadrunners.
