Report: Hudson Card named starting quarterback


Recommended Posts


A few weeks ago, Steve Sarkisian called the QB competition between Casey Thompson and Hudson Card the closest one he's overseen in his career. After battling it out throughout spring practice and fall camp, the competition appears to have concluded. Sarkisian informed both quarterbacks Friday that Hudson Card would open the year as the starter, as first reported by Horns247.

The redshirt freshman will be the first freshman QB to start an opener for Texas since Shane Buechele in 2016. Card was a standout at Lake Travis high school and was considered the 2nd ranked dual threat QB in the country in the 2020 class according to the 247 composite rankings. He played in 3 games in 2020 while taking a redshirt year.

Thompson entered the competition with the most experience as he entered his 4th year in the program, but turnovers became an issue throughout the spring and into fall camp. It is unknown whether Thompson will stick around for the 2021 season as the backup or potentially enter his name into the transfer portal. 

#21 Texas is 7 days away from opening the season against #23 Louisiana and will start the Steve Sarkisian era with Card leading the offense.
