A highly, highly regarded quarterback prospect is looking for a new place to play college football.

Pete Thamel of Yahoo! Sports reports that Ohio State quarterback Quinn Ewers will enter the transfer portal. Thamel adds that Texas, Texas A&M, and Texas Tech are possible destinations for Ewers.

Ewers, 18, was the top prospect of the 2022 recruiting class, and committed to Ohio State in Nov. 2020 after decommitting from Texas.

And in August, Ewers reclassified to enroll early for the 2021 season. He went on to play just two snaps (in Ohio State’s final home game against Michigan State), both of which were handoffs.

As Thamel notes, Ewers “made well over $1 million in name, image and likeness money by leaving high school early and signing deals, which included memorabilia and a kombucha company.”

Ewers is from Texas, and it seems like there’s a good chance that’s where he goes back to for his next school.

Redshirt freshman C.J. Stroud has thrown for 38 touchdowns and five interceptions for Ohio State this season.

Here’s how the college football world has reacted so far to the news of Ewers’ intention to transfer:
