That was fast.

Quinn Ewers, the No. 1 overall player from the 2022 recruiting class who reclassified to 2021 and enrolled at Ohio State this fall, will enter the transfer portal, according to a report from Yahoo Sports’ Pete Thamel, and leave Ohio State before he was ever originally scheduled to arrive.

Ewers, a 6-foot-3 native of Southlake, Texas, will choose between Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Texas, according to Thamel. A report from The Columbus Dispatch says Ewers has not yet officially put his name in the portal but has told Ohio State he is going to.

The quarterback arrived in Columbus with tremendous fanfare after reclassifying. Despite being the highest-rated recruit to ever sign with the program (in the recruiting era), he redshirted during his first year. Ewers appeared in just 1 game for the Buckeyes and played 2 snaps, handing the ball off on both in the Buckeyes’ rout of Michigan State.

Ewers graduated high school early and enrolled at Ohio State in the fall to begin profiting off of his name, image, and likeness. Though he sat all season behind starter and Heisman contender CJ Stroud, Ewers reportedly made 7 figures in endorsement money through NIL opportunities.

He’s the 2nd Ohio State quarterback to decide on the portal since the Buckeyes’ season ended last Saturday, joining Jack Miller.
