He graduated from high school early to come to Ohio State and be the quarterback.
The former top ranked QB from Southlake, Texas, a Dallas suburb, joined the Buckeyes in August thinking he could come in and take the reins over. But C.J. Stroud, Kyle McCord and Jack Miller all had a leg up on Ewers because they knew the playbook and had played Spring Football.
Rumors have it that he will be looking at Texas, Texas Tech and Texas A&M.
Ewers did not throw a pass as a freshman at Ohio State and made his debut last month against Michigan State. Playing in the final minute and a half against the Spartans.
This will be only the second offseason in which players are given a one-time transfer exception by the NCAA, allowed to transfer once as an undergraduate and gain immediate eligibility. Before 2020, undergraduate transfers were required to sit out a season.
