JUST IN: Texas extends mind blowing offers to prominent QBs

Which quarterbacks earn offers is the most significant decision made in a recruiting class, especially when it comes from a renowned quarterback developer like Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian.

After Alabama prospect KJ Lacey committed in the 2025 recruiting class, Sarkisian and his staff extended up to 60 offers in the 2026 cycle. On Wednesday, the first two quarterback offers were made, to Troy Huhn of San Marcos, California, and Jared Curtis of Nashville, Tennessee’s Nashville Christian School. Sarkisian personally made both of the offers.

Curtis is ranked as the top quarterback in the 247Sports Composite rankings and the top recruit overall by 247Sports. This is typical for quarterback recruits of his caliber, since he is already quite mature in the spring of his sophomore year.

Curtis, a 6’4″, 225-pound athlete, has received over 30 offers from prestigious universities across the country. His current top choices are Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Ohio State, Tennessee, and Texas A&M. Curtis just visited Oregon on an unofficial basis.

As a sophomore, Curtis completed 180 out of 321 passes (56.1%) for 2,522 yards, 25 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. He also added 543 yards and 13 scores in the air.

Offering Huhn, a 6’4 and 195-pound player who is unranked by all four services and lacks a nationally elite offer list, from Sarkisian’s home state represents a different kind of evaluation by Sarkisian. Thus far, offers have been extended by Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Nebraska, Oregon, Penn State, San Diego State, Texas A&M, and UCF. Anticipate an increase in that list over the spring review phase.

Huhn is already well-known in Texas; he attended the OT victory over Kansas State in early November and came for a camp visit there last summer.

Huhn is a quarterback to watch in the 2026 class as Texas attempts to recruit Curtis because of Sarkisian’s ties to California and his willingness to make repeated trips to the Forty Acres. However, the process is still early for the Longhorns as Sarkisian and position coach AJ Milwee are selective with their offers at this time, and several other quarterbacks who are not offered among the top 100 prospects in the country have expressed interest in Texas with Junior Day visits last Monday.
