At one point, the Alabama Crimson Tide star quarterback was set to become a Texas Longhorn.

In the summer of 2019, Milroe was offered and quickly committed to the Longhorns and then-head coach Tom Herman. And for a year, it seemed like Milroe was in line to be the Longhorns’ next QB of the future.

Obviously, that never happened. Milroe de-committed from Texas in August of 2020, and Herman was fired at the end of that season.

And according to Milroe, had Texas not ‘dropped the ball’ in his recruitment, he very well could have remained a Longhorn

Yeah they did,” Milroe said on a recent episode of Bussin With The Boys when asked if Texas dropped the ball. “There (were) some things during the process that (that I looked at and said for my future), I think Alabama would be best.”

Of course, Milroe went on to commit to the Tide, eventually earning the starting job and leading them to the College Football Playoff in 2023.
