Texas already has one quarterback commit for the 2021 cycle in Katy Thompkins’ Jalen Milroe, but it looks like the Longhorns are on the hunt for a second quarterback for the class.
The newly minted Texas offensive coordinator Mike Yurcich made his first quarterback offer this evening as the signal caller in Austin and it went out to Lubbock Coronado four star Sawyer Robertson.
Congratulations to Sawyer Robertson (@SawRobertson12) on getting an offer from The University of Texas @8_parr @Cstangsfootball @TexasFootball @CoachTomHerman @Coach_Yurcich pic.twitter.com/6ZkSlevqPn— LBK Coronado FB (@Cstangsfootball) January 24, 2020
Robertson now holds 10 FBS offers to date after netting one this evening from Texas and already holds offers from Mississippi State, Louisville, Washington State, and Wisconsin.
Robertson has thrown for 7,597 yards over the past two seasons and has thrown for 87 touchdowns during that time frame.
Taking two quarterbacks seems like a wise decision for the long run with recent signee Ja’Quinden Jackson recovering from a knee injury suffered during the playoff run and given that your quarterback room can thin out quickly either due to injury or the transfer portal.
It will be interesting to see how many more quarterback offers go out this cycle and to see who the staff decides to focus on as things play out throughout the year.
