Top 2022 quarterback prospect Quinn Ewers decommits from Texas

  • October 29, 2020

The Texas Longhorns suffered a five-star loss Wednesday night when 2022 quarterback prospect Quinn Ewers backed away from his pledge.   

Ewers is the top-rated quarterback in the current junior class and is the second-ranked prospect nationally on the 247Sports composite rankings. He was one of three Texas pledges in the 2022 cycle.

The 6-3, 195-pound junior was the MaxPreps sophomore of the year in 2019 when he led Southlake Carroll (Texas) to the Class 6A Division I state quarterfinals. He passed for 4,003 yards and 45 touchdowns compared to just three interceptions. He also added 568 rushing yards and nine scores on the ground.

Ewers, who initially picked Texas back on Aug. 14, announced he was reopening his recruitment via Twitter

“The more I’ve considered, the more I’ve come to realize I didn’t explore all options as thoroughly as I would have liked,” Ewers wrote, noting the recruiting process has been quite “abnormal” this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. 

“I’ve decided to de-commit and reassess the situation before making such an important decision on my future,” he wrote. 

Ewers thanked Texas “for their belief in me and my abilities” and thanked Longhorns fans “for their interest and support.” He said a “firm decision” on his future would be made soon.
