One of the biggest quarterback pledges in the history of Texas Longhorns football has decommitted. 2022 Southlake Carroll quarterback Quinn Ewers announced his decommitment on Wednesday in what was a huge blow for Tom Herman and the Texas coaching staff.
The commitment from Ewers came in mid-August and was a huge deal as he was ranked as the top prospect in the 2022 recruiting class and had a perfect rating from 247Sports.
Ewers is now sitting at No. 2 in the rankings, but he’s still the top pro-style quarterback in the class.
This was rumored to be happening earlier in the day and our own Derek Duke posted on our Heartland College Sports message boards about this news before it happened. Note: Go SIGN UP for our FREE message boards, where each week we give away a $20 gift card to the best poster!
However, when Ewers committed, Texas lost out on 2021 quarterback pledge Jalen Milroe, a top-100 prospect and the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback. Milroe then flipped to Alabama.
And as was noted by Derek Duke, there is concern that Ewers decision was, at least in part, decided due to the uncertainty around Texas both on the field, where the Longhorns are sitting at 3-3, and off the field, where Tom Herman has been under fire lately.
Regardless, Tom Herman and the Longhorns have a game to play this weekend against the Oklahoma State Cowboys, in a game that Texas must win if it wants any chance to be competing for a Big 12 Championship entering the month of November.
Kick off is set for 3:00 CST.
