Report: Quinn Ewers Leaving Ohio State, Entering Transfer Portal With 3 Teams In Mind

Videos by OutKick

Quinn Ewers is on his way out of Ohio State, announced Friday evening.

According to Yahoo Sports‘ Peter Thamel, Ewers will enter the transfer portal and is “expected to consider Texas, Texas A&M and Texas Tech as potential destinations.”

Ewers chose to forego his final year at Southlake Carroll to join the Buckeyes in 2021, which paid off for him as the ground-breaking NIL rule change allowed the 18-year-old prospect to cash in on over $1 million in advertising deals

Current Ohio State quarterback CJ Stroud, a name floated for the Heisman this year, has quelled any desire for the Buckeyes to give Ewers looks this season — minus the two snaps he’s taken for the team so far. Even in a loss against Oregon, Stroud’s 484 yards proved that the starting slot is still well in his control.

Stroud’s production has led the Buckeyes to a 10-2 record and a No. 7 ranking among the CFP listing — though the team is still only peering its way in on making the Playoff.

Ewers was regarded as the team’s backup over Kyle McCord, but the team’s ‘success’ under Stroud still kept the top-ranked QB prospect on ice — likely a season or two away from commanding his own offense. 

Apparently, that’s no longer the case.

Stay tuned with OutKick as the Ewers story develops.

  1. When he enrolled a year early, it threw off the QB schedule at Ohio State.. He sat this year because he got to camp when it was half over and now that Stroud has been named B1G Offensive POY, he wouldn’t play much next year either.

  2. Who? This dude’s dad said that enrolling early and making money off of NIL was what was best for his mulleted kid. Err wrong, it was what was best for his family as an extra retirement account. Quit lying to everyone. Greed is greed. Chances are the kid won’t be any damn good and won’t hear anything else but shitty stats for the next few years.
