With two more days until Steve Sarkisian reveals the starting quarterback against the Jayhawks, the Longhorns officially have co-starters at the position.

Facing a four-game losing streak heading into Saturday’s home game against the Kansas Jayhawks, the Texas Longhorns are also facing some roster churn and a quarterback competition in practice this week.

This week’s depth chart reflects both realities.

  • Junior quarterback Casey Thompson’s benching and redshirt freshman quarterback Hudson Card’s subsequent shaky play against Iowa State resulted in a competition at the position this week that head coach Steve Sarkisian will resolve on Thursday. The major factor is the health of Thompson’s right thumb that he injured against Oklahoma and was bothering him in Ames. As a result, Thompson and Card are currently listed as co-starters.
  • The new third-string quarterback is third-year walk-on Ben Ballard, who is making his first appearance on the depth chart after beating out freshman Charles Wright.
  • With the departure of junior wide receiver Joshua Moore following last week’s practice incident with Sarkisian, redshirt freshman Kelvontay Dixon is in line to receive his second career start if Sarkisian opts to open in 11 personnel against Kansas.
  • The shuffling means that junior wide receiver Kai Money, the former walk on, is now the backup to junior wide receiver Marcus Washington.
  • The departure of freshman linebacker Terrence Cooks II last week leaves junior Ovie Oghoufo and super senior Ben Davis as the only two strong-side linebackers listed on the depth chart.
  • At safety, super senior Brenden School remains the co-starter ahead of sophomore Jerrin Thompson after leading the team in tackles against Iowa State with 12, all solo.
