...and you need to be OK with that.
JT Barrett is what Robert Griffin would look like if Griffin played in the current era of Texas football, one dominated by shotgun spread option. Other than distance from the center and the deployment of a fullback, the two players are nearly identical. Seriously, watch one reel and then the other and try to come up with a meaningful difference.
Cody Thomas plays the position better than Aaron Rogers and Tom Brady did at the same age. Kenny Hill is a product of the productive SLC QB Cloning Program, with top scientists managing to take Chase Daniel's DNA and redistribute the excess weight from the skull to the legs. Kohl Stewart also exists.
Texas will likely have to face them all at some point, possibly more than once. You should be OK with this because our guy is better than the whole lot of them.
I will spend the next 1,800 words telling you why, starting with this hyper-technical answer: Tyrone Swoopes is the best prospect in Texas because he is enormous and he is fast. He can throw a football very far, very quickly. And our OC loves him.
