Ohio State had the top quarterback pick in the class of 2022 when Quinn Ewers moved from Texas to sign with the Buckeyes last October. Turns out they won’t have to wait any longer to get it to campus.
Ewers announced in a lengthy statement Monday that he will quit his senior year at Southlake Carroll High School in Texas to enroll at Ohio State. The 18-year-old said he made the decision in part because Texas is one of the states that doesn’t allow high school athletes to benefit from their names, images and likes.
“For the past few weeks, after UIL Texas informed me that it would prohibit me from taking advantage of my own name, image and likeness, I took some time to think about what to expect, both in the short term and in the long term. term, ”Ewers wrote. “It’s a shame I found myself in this situation as my preference would have been to complete my senior season at Southlake Carroll alongside the teammates and friends I have been out on the field with over the past three years.”
