At least a few of the Texas Longhorns football squad members are gamers.
Not gamers as in they ball on the gridiron, though sophomore wide receiver Xavier Worthy and redshirt freshman quarterback Quinn Ewers certainly do just that. But rather, video gamers, as is evident through Worthy and Ewers’ recent inking of an NIL deal with Epic Gaming, the makers of Fortnite, according to a report in 247Sports. See their video below:
