Texas football coach Steve Sarkisian thinks Quinn Ewers is geared up for a successful season in Austin.
More than anything, Sarkisian thinks Ewers is in a better position to have success than he was last season as a true freshman with the Buckeyes.
“I think for us, naturally he knows some of the guys on this team, being from Texas (and that) makes sense to him. He got himself an entire offseason to get acclimated, I just think all in all, it’s just a better set up for success. I don’t think it’s anything against Ohio State, I just think it was difficult for Ryan (Day) and his team to get him acclimated the way they needed to when we had months to (get him ready),” Sarkisian explained on “The Rich Eisen Show” when talking about Ewers’ situation with the Longhorns, according to 247Sports.
However, Sarkisian is very aware there will still be some bumps in the road when dealing with a 19-year-old kid under center who has never thrown a pass in a game.
The head coach of the Longhorns previously said there will be “growing pains” when dealing with the QB position.
However, it’s clear Sarkisian feels he finally has his man and expectations couldn’t be higher for Quinn Ewers.
He skipped his final year of high school to enroll early with the Buckeyes as the top recruit in his class. With C.J. Stroud becoming a Heisman contender and possible first pick in the draft, Ewers left Columbus and landed in Austin in an attempt to get on the field.
Now, he’s QB1 for one of the most historic programs in college football history, and Sarkisian likes the situation.
If you’re a fan of the Longhorns, there’s no doubt there’s lots to be optimistic about. Let’s wait to officially announce Texas is back, but Quinn Ewers might certainly be spinning it this season.
