There is no quarterback controversy at Texas
Every position is open for the Texas Longhorns this spring. Every player will earn his starting role.
For that reason, Quinn Ewers will compete with Arch Manning and an injured Maalik Murphy. So, too, will Jaylan Ford compete with Jett Bush and Jalen Catalon compete with Michael Taaffe.
There is no quarterback controversy at Texas. Barring an unforeseen collapse by Ewers, the 2022 starter will remain in the starting role in 2023. That’s not an indictment of Manning. Ewers is simply primed for a strong season this year should he put in the work necessary to thrive in the offense.
Arch Manning has a bright future on the Forty Acres. He has the traits and athleticism to earn his own statue outside DKR Memorial Stadium by the end of his career. Manning is also a freshman, and would likely endure some of the same growing pains Ewers went through last season.
Quinn Ewers will likely win the starting job. If he does, Texas should be in good hands.
