Murphy appeared in the Rice and Baylor games earlier this season in mop up duty. However, the Longhorns will now rely heavily on Murphy for what could be the next few weeks as starting quarterback Quinn Ewers recovers from a shoulder injury.
The 6-foot-5 redshirt freshman shined in Texas’ Orange-White spring game back in April. He concluded the scrimmage completing 9-of-13 passes for 165 yards and one touchdown.
After spending his freshman season in Austin rehabbing from an ankle injury, Murphy is now in his second year of Steve Sarkisian’s offense and the players and staff have high confidence in him.
Here’s a look at several of Murphy’s highlights from both the high school and college level thus far.
Maalik Murphy senior season Hudl tape 2021
Keep in mind two years into Texas S&C program he’s bigger now & mechanically much more tighter & refined on his delivery.
Upside here is how he forces opponents to defend every blade of grass downfield as we saw in the spring game. pic.twitter.com/DZEpMrSFxC

Maalik Murphy fires a strike to his receiver to get the Cavaliers on the board late in this one. A missed XP keeps this one tied.
