Less than a month the Texas Longhorns lost the commitment of near five-star athlete, Billy Bowman Jr. Before October can even come to a close, the Longhorns lost another commitment. This time, it’s Quinn Ewers.

Ewers, who is the top quarterback prospect not only in the 2022 class but also one of the highest-ranked recruits ever to play the game, announced his commitment to Texas on August, 14. The five-star quarterback prospect is a 6’3 200-pound pro-style passer with the ability to get it done on the ground if needed. His commitment marked one of the biggest victories in Texas recruiting history and served as a potential turning point in the history of Texas football.

He announced via his Twitter that he “didn’t explore his options as thoroughly as he would’ve liked,” and thus will be re-opening his recruitment.

The 2022 class, for now, shrinks to just two commits. Four-star defensive back Jaylon Guilbeau and four-star wide receiver Phaizon Wilson.

Ewers has been the prize possession of the 2022 recruiting cycle for a while now as he received his first scholarship offer from North Texas back in 2016. He started his first full season at the varsity level last year for Southlake Carroll. Along with leading them to the quarterfinals of the 6A D1 playoffs, he also threw for 3,998 yards and 45 touchdowns whilst completing 72% of his passes. He added 583 yards and nine touchdowns on the ground as well.

Through three games of the 2020 season, Ewers and Carroll have started out with a 2-1 record whilst putting up 57 points per game in the process. Ewers has 937 yards and 11 touchdowns on a 70% completion percentage while running for 78 yards and two more scores.

The loss of Ewers is devastating to Texas football. The bonafide best quarterback in the nation will now be seeking out a new home, somewhere other than Austin, Texas.

Ohio State is currently the favorite to land Ewers’ services.
