No matter what, once it became clear that Steve Sarkisian was keeping both Quinn Ewers and Arch Manning in Austin for 2024, the offseason was a resounding success. Texas lost Maalik Murphy to Duke, but the quarterback room is more than okay without him.

After securing his quarterback of the present and the future, Sark turned his attention to the rest of the passing game, on both sides of the ball. The Longhorns lost their top four pass-catchers to the NFL, but promptly replaced them with former Alabama receiver Isaiah Bond, former Alabama tight end Amari Niblack, former Oregon State receiver Silas Bolden, and Matthew Golden from Houston. 

Ewers will have plenty of weapons to throw to in 2024, and the pass defense for Texas was improved by the activity in the portal. Jerrin Thompson who started 31 games in his career at Texas transferred to Auburn, but Thompson led Texas in missed tackles last year. He was replaced at safety by Clemson transfer Andrew Mukuba, an upgrade for the Texas secondary. 

The Longhorns will be in the College Football Playoff again next year and might even win the SEC title in Year 1.
