With Texas Longhorns redshirt freshman Maalik Murphy named as this week’s starter versus the BYU Cougars, Texas coaches still have to decide whether backup true freshman Arch Manning will get a share of playing time.
“I haven’t made a decision if I want to get Arch in there just to get him in there or not, but we have discussed that some,” head coach Steve Sarkisian said, per Inside Texas. “Because I do think there’s some valuable experience for him in that, but I have to make sure that’s in the best interest of the team, and I have to make sure that the team comes first in everything that we do, but I do see the value in something like that. I’m just not ready to make that call, yet.”
