QB Quinn Ewers saws off horns; top overall prospect of 2022 recruitment class retracts commitment to Longhorns
Quinn Ewers, star quarterback and current Carroll High School junior, said he withdrew his commitment from the University of Texas on Wednesday.
Ewers, the top overall prospect in the 2022 recruiting class, committed to the Longhorns in August, but he wanted to keep his options open.
“Recently, as I’ve competed alongside my teammates during my junior season at Southlake Carroll, I’ve also taken some time to think about my future,” Ewers wrote on Twitter. “Given the COVID-19 pandemic facing us, this has been a challenging year for all students like myself. With the support of my family, I tried to navigate the recruiting process the best way I could. With the process being abnormal this season, I tried my best to keep an open mind to all possibilities.”
With that, other blue-blood programs like Ohio State and Alabama, among other schools, have continued to recruit the 6-foot-3, 205-pound quarterback. Clemson and Oklahoma are other schools in the running according to ESPN sources.
Following Ewers’ decision to withdraw his commitment, the Longhorns are in danger of losing a big name nationally. Ewers is also a top-flight recruit in the Lone Star State. Carroll High School is in Southlake, Texas. If Ewers commits to another school, the Longhorns could miss out on landing a top-ranked, in-state recruit as they did in both 2019 and 2020.
