NEWS ACROSS THE LONGHORN REPUBLIC AND BEYOND

  • Texas head coach Tom Herman says a 2020 debut still isn’t out of the realm of possibility for freshman quarterback Ja’Quinden Jackson, according to the Austin American-Statesman. From the Statesman: “Only two dual-threat quarterbacks in the 2020 recruiting class were ranked higher than Jackson, who was a four-star signee for Texas. During both his junior and senior years at Duncanville High, Jackson exceeded 1,000 rushing and 1,000 passing yards. Jackson, however, suffered a knee injury during the Class 6A, Division I playoffs this past December. Throughout UT’s fall camp, Jackson has been cleared to practice. According to Herman, Jackson looked good during Sunday’s 7-on-7 drills. Herman also said that ‘we’re kind of easing him into more and more bodies being around him.’ But despite being medically available, Herman assessed that Jackson is still working on his confidence.”
  • Senior quarterback Sam Ehlinger was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week.
