“It’s tough because you want to be out there playing with your boys,” he said in an interview with The Athletic. “But [it came down to] just realizing there’s nowhere else I want to be, and it was my dream to play at Texas. I’m going to stick it out and play there eventually.”

Manning turned heads at the spring game this year. He was 19 of 25 with 355 passing yards and three touchdowns, including a 75-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Moore.

Ewers told the outlet that he believes Manning understands Texas will best prepare him for the NFL.

“I think his actions definitely go to show that the kid’s got some patience, for sure,” Ewers added. “I know it’s tough, because when I went to Ohio State, obviously it’s tough sitting behind somebody.”

Manning got a chance to play against Texas Tech in November. He was 2 of 5 with 30 passing yards. He also made an appearance in the Big 12 Championship against Oklahoma State but didn’t throw a pass.

Texas is poised to have its quarterback situation set for at least the next three seasons if Manning decides to stay through his senior season.

Ewers led Texas to a 12-2 season but lost in the Sugar Bowl to Washington.
