5-star QB Quinn Ewers makes decision on forgoing senior year of HS
In one of the more unique fallouts of the name, image and likeness changes in college sports involves an elite quarterback, who is set to enroll at Ohio State. But the news is that Quinn Ewers is forgoing his entire senior year of high school from Southlake Carroll in Texas to enroll early with the Buckeyes.
Ewers is reclassifying to the recruiting class of 2021 and will be eligible to participate in preseason camp and play for the Buckeyes this season, per On3’s Justin Wells.
Ewers originally planned to arrive at Ohio State in January, but will now enroll in August and begin his college career one season earlier than expected after completing the necessary coursework to graduate from Southlake Carroll High School.
With this update, Ohio State will now have four scholarship quarterbacks on its 2021 roster, all of whom were highly touted recruits but none of whom have ever thrown a collegiate pass: C.J. Stroud, Jack Miller, Kyle McCord and Ewers.
Ewers is the highest-rated recruit in Ohio State history, and has a chance to win the starting job even though he’s playing catch up against the other QBs.
