Texas football and head coach Steve Sarkisian threw their hat in the ring for the recruitment of the No. 1 quarterback in the nation in the 2026 class (according to all major recruiting services) on Feb. 14.

The elite five-star Nashville Christian School (TN) quarterback Jared Curtis announced on his Twitter/X account on Feb. 14 that he had officially received an offer from Texas. He said in this post on his X account that he received the Texas offer via a phone call with Sarkisian.

Texas football sends an offer to No. 1 2026 QB recruit Jared Curtis

Curtis is the first quarterback recruit that Sarkisian and the Longhorns staff has offered in the 2026 class.

Texas joins many of the nation's elite programs among those that have offered Curtis. The Alabama Crimson Tide, Tennessee Volunteers, Georgia Bulldogs, Ohio State Buckeyes, Florida State Seminoles, Oregon Ducks, and Oklahoma Sooners, are just a few of the top college programs that have offered Curtis already.

He's already visited Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Tennessee, and the Texas A&M Aggies multiple times. Return visits to Georgia and Ohio State are also on the docket for Curtis and his family this spring.

Curtis told 247Sports director of recruiting Steve Wiltfong that he thinks Texas's move to the SEC is "big time" and he likes "the way they run an NFL-like offense".

Curtis visited Texas last offseason

Last summer was the first time Curtis visited Texas. He participated in the Texas Elite Camp in early-June during his visit to Austin last offseason.

And it sounds like he's looking to get back to Austin at some point this year after officially receiving the offer from the Longhorns.
