Five-star recruit Quinn Ewers is changing the course of his college football career. Ewers, who enrolled over the summer at Ohio State, has expressed his desire to transfer to the Texas Longhorns. While nothing has been conclusive, as of this writing, Ewers did share this pretty telling post to his Twitter followers.

The Longhorns should view this development as a very positive one. For one, it’s not going to take Ewers long to adapt to the atmosphere in Texas, considering he is from San Antonio.
Ewers’ short stint with the Buckeyes saw him play a total of just two snaps when he appeared in Ohio State’s 56-7 home win over the Michigan State Spartans on Nov. 20.
With Ewers headed to Texas, the Longhorns now have considerable depth at the quarterback position. In 2021, they used both freshman Hudson Card and junior Casey Thompson. Both players have the advantage over Ewers when it comes to experience, but Ewers comes with perhaps the best potential among the three.
Texas’ offense averaged 35.3 points per game in 2021, though that was mainly driven by its rushing attack that composed over 54 percent of their plays.
According to 247Sports’ composite ranking, Ewers’ 1.000 score is tied for the best recruit grade with the likes of Jadeveon Clowney, Robert Nkemdiche, Rashan Gary, Vince Young, and Ernie Sims.
