Texas Longhorns quarterback Casey Thompson, a redshirt junior, made an impression in his first career start against the Rice Owls over the weekend, in which Texas won 58-0.

In particular, it’s his confidence that made an impression on Thompson’s teammates.

Take this one piece of sentiment from sophomore running back Bijan Thompson, via 247Sports: “Just seeing how he studies and what he studies in defenses and how confident he is, it’s pretty cool to be next to him.”
