Steve Sarkisian has made clear who is Texas’ starting quarterback for the 2024 season.

Sarkisian spoke with reporters on Wednesday and was asked about the starting quarterback position. Sark made clear that Quinn Ewers is the team’s starter.

Ewers was very clearly the Longhorns’ starting quarterback last season. Though he missed some time due to an injury, Ewers passed for 3,479 yards, 22 touchdowns and 6 interceptions over 12 games. He also rushed for 5 TDs while leading Texas to a 12-2 record.

Arch Manning served as the team’s third-string QB for most of last season. He became the team’s No. 2 QB for the College Football Playoff game against Washington after Maalik Murphy left the program as a transfer.

Some people may be pushing for Manning to become the starter — or at least asking about it — but it seems very clear that Texas will continue with Ewers. And why wouldn’t they? He played high-quality football last season, and the results were excellent for Texas.
