Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian knows what he has to work with going into the 2021 college football season. And according to 247Sports, he’s actually feeling “pretty good” about the quarterback situation room in particular. “I do like the maturity of Casey [Thompson.] I like what he brought in the [Alamo Bowl] game. You got a pretty good feel. We’ve obviously dug into a lot of practice tape. I like the skill set of Hudson Card. I think he’s a really talented player, and you see that when you dig into the practice tape,” Sarkisian said.
He continued, “I think we’ve got two kind-of frontline guys to start the process, and then bringing Charles [Wright] here. And then we’ll see what we end up doing moving forward in the ’22 and ’23 class.”
