Here's when 5-star QB Quinn Ewers could reportedly be joining Ohio State in fall camp
After releasing a statement on Monday afternoon, 5-star recruit Quinn Ewers confirmed his intention to forego his senior year of high school and enroll early at Ohio State.
Now that everyone knows this, exactly what happens next?
While timelines are unclear, it will be a chaotic couple weeks for the Buckeyes newest addition to the quarterback room, and the next 10 days look to be busy according to Austin Ward of Lettermen Row.
According to @LettermenRow sources, Ohio State is expecting it to take about 10 days for Ewers to get class finished, paperwork signed and get to campus.
That timeline makes a long shot he could help this season even longer. This move is really about a head start into next year. https://t.co/8TeFU8jJs1

Ewers will now be skipping his senior season at Southlake Carroll (TX) to head to Columbus and begin to reap the benefits from his Name, Image and Likeness opportunities. It is estimated that the decision will garner nearly $1 million he could receive from potential endorsement deals, none of which would not be allowed should he have stayed in Texas under the state’s current laws.
The move makes Ewers the No. 1 overall player in the class of 2021, according to 247Sports Composite rankings. A problem every team would like to have, it also pits Ewars with fellow 5-star QB Kyle McCord in the class of 2021 for Ohio State.
Realistically, he will likely not be able to contribute to the Buckeyes 2021 season, but a solid foundation for moving into 2022 will be set into place.
