It didn’t take Quinn Ewers long to make his decision after hitting the transfer portal.
The decision was announced Sunday night.
The former Ohio State quarterback, a five-star recruit, who graduated from high school early to take advantage of the NIL rule, is transferring back home to his native Texas.
The ballyhooed QB will be a Texas Longhorn.
His decision was announced on Twitter.
Last season, the Longhorns started junior QB Casey Thompson. They also have redshirt freshman Hudson Card.
Looking ahead to schedules, Texas and Ohio State will play during the 2025 season. Ewers probably will be in the NFL by then. That year would be his fifth if he elects to stay.
Ewers is the 2nd-highest recruit ever at Texas. The other, was Vince Young.
