It’s no secret that Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian is opening up the program’s starting quarterback competition between returning starter and redshirt sophomore Quinn Ewers and true freshman Arch Manning, who joined the program earlier this spring.

“Open competition is really healthy for everybody,” Sarkisian said, per Inside Texas. “Everybody should feel like ‘man, if I can push myself to perform at a higher level in order to push the guys around me, whether they’re the guys in front of me on the depth chart or behind me, everybody’s play should step up. It’s easy to point to the quarterback ‘competition.’ Every position is an open competition.”
