Ohio State’s quarterback room was set to be pretty loaded with young talent as fall camp is set to open up on Wednesday morning.
It just got a little more loaded.
Quinn Ewers, Ohio State’s five-star quarterback pledge out of Southlake (Texas) Carroll has officially decided to forego his senior season of high school and enroll at Ohio State later this month, sources have informed BuckeyeScoop.com.
Ewers is not expected to be in Columbus when fall camp opens on Wednesday, but is expected to join the team in the next two weeks. With that, Ewers will be allowed to monetize his name, image, and likeness, perhaps to the tune of over a million dollars before ever taking a college snap.
The Buckeyes now have four freshmen quarterbacks on the roster with C.J. Stroud and Jack Miller in the program as redshirt freshmen and Kyle McCord along with Ewers as true freshmen. While Stroud and Miller were with the team and saw limited action last fall, the Buckeyes will enter the season with four scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, none of whom will have attempted a collegiate pass heading into the September 2nd’s opener at Minnesota.
Below, Kirk Barton, Bill Greene, and NevadaBuck break down the decision by Ewers in an emergency Scoop World Order podcast.
