Quarterback Quinn Ewers, the number one sight in the recruiting class in 2022, announced Wednesday that he has retired from Texas.
Ewers is a 6-foot-3, 205-pound potential customer at Carroll High School in Southlake, Texas, and promised to work with Longhorns in August. However, as more and more schools are still recruiting him, Ewers is reconsidering his decision, including Ohio State University and Alabama.
Ewers wrote on Twitter: “Recently, when I was playing with my teammates in the third year of South Lake Carroll University, I also spent some time thinking about my future.” “In view of our COVID-19 Popular, this is a challenging year for all students like me. With the support of my family, I try to deal with the recruitment process in the best way.
“Due to the unusual process of this season, I tried my best to be open to all possibilities.”
Ewers went on to say that he did not fully explore all his options in the recruitment process as he hoped, and is now reassessing his situation. Although he had always dreamed of playing for Texas in August, Ewers thanked the Longhorns employees for their hard work.
He is one of three ESPN Junior 300 commitments completed by Texas with cornerback Jaylon Guilbeau and wide receiver Phaizon Wilson in 2022. Employees can sign ESPN 300 quarterback Ja’Quinden Jackson and Hudson Card in the 2020 class, and have three-star quarterback Charles Wright in the 2021 cycle.
This is of great benefit to Longhorns’ recruitment, not only because Ewers ranks first overall, but he is also a big name in Texas. Longhorns missed the traditional recruits, and the twins Tommy and James Brockermeyer entered the 2021 class. Tommy ranked second overall and the highest in Texas. Both parties are committed to Alabama.
Employees also did not select the number one recruits in the state in 2020 or 2019. If Ewers does not rejoin, they may miss out in 2022.
