COLUMBUS, OH — Thanks for the memories.

And the money.

Quinn Ewers was a 5-star recruit and considered the No.1 quarterback in the 2022 class.

However, Ewers elected to leave school early and enrolled at Ohio State University.

With restrictions in Texas regarding Name-Image-Likeness deals, Ewers went to Ohio where he raked in an estimated $1.4 million, three-year deal with CT Sports Marketing in August.

But after very limited activity with the Buckeyes this past season and finding himself sitting behind C.J. Stroud for the next year or two, Ewers decided on Friday to enter the transfer portal.

Ewers played at Southlake Carroll High School in Texas and had offers from most of the major college programs in the country. He initially committed to Texas before switching to Ohio State. He has reportedly been linked to Texas A&M.

Ohio State got some positive news earlier last week with a commitment from 4-star quarterback Devin Brown from Utah.
