Quarterback Quinn Ewers, number 1 in the ranking for class 2022, dedicated to the state of Ohio on Thursday.
His commitment gives the Buckeyes the No. 1 ranked for the prospect, three recruiting classes in a row, with a protected end Jack Sawyer in the 2021 class and a wide successor to Julian Fleming in 2020.
Avers had previously been dedicated to Texas, but announced on October 28 that he was retiring. At the time, Ewers said he had not had the opportunity to explore all of his options and wanted to take advantage of that opportunity.
Ewers, a 6-foot, 205-pound lead from Carroll High School in Southlake, Texas, had offers from almost every program in the country.
When he first committed to Texas, Ewers said he had always dreamed of playing for the Longhorns, but those feelings changed along the way and Ohio appeared on the scene, eventually getting the commitment of the talented quarterback.
Ewers adds Kyle McCord, the No. 4 pocket quarterback ranked in 2021, to Ohio’s already strong quarterback room. Employees also signed two ESPN 300 quarterbacks in the 2020 class at CJ Stroud and Jack Miller after accepting a transfer. Justin Fields in 2019
Ewers has given seven ESPN Junior 300 engagements in the 2022 class, along with linebackers Gabe Powers and CJ Hicks, athlete Dasan McCullough, offensive player Tegra Tshabola, cornerback Jyaire Brown and Benji Gosnell.
These seven commitments for ESPN Jr. 300 have Buckeyes tied to LSU and Penn State for the most such commitments for any program in this class.
