Southlake Carroll High School incoming senior and top-ranked class of 2022 quarterback Quinn Ewers has decided to skip his senior season and enroll early with the Ohio State Buckeyes, according to multiple outlets. Ewers is set to profit handsomely next year now that name, image and likeness have been approved – a fact that likely prompted his decision. For comparison’s sake, presumptive Alabama Crimson Tide starting quarterback Bryce Young has already made north of seven figures since the legislation was approved earlier this summer, before ever taking an authentic snap as the team’s starter this season.
Once upon a time, five-star Ewers was a Texas Longhorns commit.
