In less than a year, Texas will be at a quarterback crossroads. Sam Ehlinger will have played his final snap in a Longhorn uniform, and the process of finding his successor will be in full swing. Luckily for Tom Herman and the Longhorns, there’s a promise-filled season to be played before that occurs.
There have been many stories written about the newest Texas quarterback signee here at IT. Hometown kid. Born a Longhorn fan. Lead one of the best football programs in-state to deep runs in the playoffs. Elite 11 finalist. Georgia begged for him on his porch. Then he hit a flight for Orlando, FL last week for the Under Armour All-American game. If Hudson Card wasn't a household name then, he is now.
2020 Longhorn QB commitment Hudson Card had a nice showing at the Elite 11 camp in Frisco, finishing near the top of all performers overall. Granted, Elite 11 is far from real football and a lot of the simulations in shorts are virtually useless in projecting QBs, but there were a few format agnostic traits Card displayed that caught my attention worth bringing to yours.
