Ohio State lands QB Ewers, No. 1 recruit in ’22


Quarterback Quinn Ewers, the No. 1-ranked prospect in the 2022 class, committed to Ohio State on Thursday.

His commitment gives the Buckeyes the No. 1-ranked prospect three recruiting classes in a row with defensive end Jack Sawyer in 2021 and wide receiver Julian Fleming in 2020.

Ewers had previously been committed to Texas, but announced Oct. 28 that he was decommitting. At the time, Ewers said he didn’t get the opportunity to explore all his options and he wanted to take that opportunity.

Ewers, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound prospect from Carroll high school in Southlake, Texas, had offers from nearly every program in the country.

When he initially committed to Texas, Ewers said it was always a dream for him to play for the Longhorns, but those feelings changed along the way and Ohio State got in the picture, ultimately receiving the talented quarterback’s commitment.

Ewers is adding to an already strong quarterback room for Ohio State, who has the No. 4 ranked pocket-passing quarterback, Kyle McCord, committed in 2021. The staff also signed two ESPN 300 quarterbacks in the 2020 class in C.J. Stroud and Jack Miller afer taking in transfer Justin Fields in 2019.

He gives Ohio State seven ESPN Junior 300 commitments in the 2022 class along with linebackers Gabe Powers and C.J. Hicks, athlete Dasan McCullough, offensive lineman Tegra Tshabola, cornerback Jyaire Brown and tight end Benji Gosnell.

Those seven ESPN Jr. 300 commitments are tied for the most of any program in that class with LSU and Penn State.
