Many Texas fans are disappointed that stud prospect Russell Shepard won’t be a Longhorn, but the coaches did reel in the player I think is an even bigger recruit in Lake Travis quarterback Garrett Gilbert. The elite QB can sling the football around the field with the best the state’s ever produced at the position. He’s intelligent, talented, and polished, and with the talent that will be around him at Texas my expectations for him are incredibly high.

If you’ve got any doubts, check out the highlight video below from his sophomore season:

I can’t help but think Gilbert’s career leading the Longhorns is going to be a fun time to be a Texas fan.

    This kid is better than I thought, and you can just tell he has room to get better.

    Remember that’s from his sophomore season, I’ve seen some junior season stiff and it’s incredible. The kid is going to light up the scoreboard as a Horn.

    I hope he does. He better play great all four years, at least 2 national championships.
