Texas Longhorns Quarterback Is Reportedly Entering Transfer Portal

Texas Football: 5 Newcomers to Watch for the Longhorns

Just days after their 2022 regular-season finale against Baylor, one University of Texas quarterback is apparently planning to enter the transfer portal. 

Sources close to the Longhorns program appear to indicate that Hudson Card will seek a fresh start with a new team in 2023. 

Card, a former ESPN top 40 recruit, is reportedly looking to transfer to another Power Five program. 

"Sources: Texas quarterback Hudson Card plans to enter the enter the transfer portal. He’s a former ESPN Top 40 recruit who is looking to land at a Power Five school. His priorities are winning and finding a place that fits his skill set to continue to develop," Pete Thamel tweeted Tuesday, 

Hudson Card has been a Longhorn since his 2020 arrival on Texas' campus. 

After seeing very limited action during his first two years with the program, Card underwent a trial by fire early this season after a Week 2 injury to usual-starter Quinn Ewers against Alabama. 

Following Ewers' departure against the Tide, Card was efficient but couldn't get the Longhorns into the end zone. Settling for three second-half field goals, Texas fell to Alabama 20-19 despite Card completing 14 of 22 passes for 158 yards.   

Card started the next three games for Texas and continued his effective play, albeit against less-than-elite competition. 

His best performance came against West Virginia in the last of his three starts. Card completed nearly 80% of his passes for 303 yards and three touchdowns in a 38-20 Texas victory. 

Over 108 total attempts in 2022, Card is completing nearly 70% of his passes and has thrown six touchdowns compared to just one interception. 

Stay on the lookout for Card's next destination as the college football season comes to a close.
