For a second-straight weekend, the 5-star quarterback in the 2022 recruiting class is on Ohio State’s campus. Ewers made the trip to Columbus last weekend, one of 17 prospects to make the journey. It was the first time prospective student-athletes were allowed to visit campuses in 15 months.

The NCAA lifted its dead period on June 1, opening the floodgates for recruiting visits. There had been an extensive moratorium on visits dating back to March 2020 because of the pandemic.
Ewers has stated repeatedly that he’s fully committed to Ohio State and has no interest in re-opening his recruitment, despite the opportunity to visit other campuses now. He’s return to Columbus this weekend seems to confirm his pledge to the program.
When he arrives on campus as a member of the 2022 class, Ewers is expected to compete for the starting job. Not only is he the top quarterback prospect in the cycle, he’s considered the No. 1 overall player in the entire class.
