Quinn Ewers, a former five-star recruit also announced that he will transfer to Texas. He was committed to Texas and was the number 1 QB in the 2022 class. Maalik Murphy, a four-star quarterback recruit from California was signed by Sarkisian
“He’s a heck of a player,” Sarkisian said of Ewers on Wednesday after he signed with the Longhorns. “He’s a heck of a talent. I think there’s a big sigh of relief for him. I think this is where he kind of wanted to be. Now we start the process of the development of him in our system and with the players around him and see how far we can take it.”
