Steve Sarkisian and his staff landed the biggest fish in the NCAA transfer portal this offseason.
Five-star quarterback Quinn Ewers had a perfect 1.0000 rating coming out of Southlake Carroll High School. Although he was a member of the 2022 recruiting class initially, Ewers chose to forgo his senior season to take advantage of NIL deals at Ohio State.
Even with the reclassification, he became the highest rated prospect in the 2021 recruiting class. Ewers’ road to Texas has been bumpy to say the least, but he ultimately decided to come back home after C.J. Stroud took full control of the starting quarterback role for the Buckeyes this past season.
On Dec. 15, Ewers became the highest rated quarterback to sign with Texas since 247Sports began generating grades in 2000. He is tied with Vince Young as the only other perfectly rated quarterback prospect to sign with the Longhorns.
Sarkisian has found his quarterback of the future, and considering Texas holds the No. 5 recruiting class in the nation along with bringing in Ewers, the expectations are as high as ever.
Prior to leaving for college, Ewers put together an impressive junior season for Southlake Carroll. In eight games played, he accounted for 2,442 passing yards and 28 touchdowns.
Since Texas fans haven’t been able to see Ewers in live action for over a year now, here are a few of Ewers’ highlights to get you excited for next season.

Impressive showing from five-star 2022 Southlake Carroll QB Quinn Ewers. Flashed the arm strength, anticipation and that he's a threat to run as well

Southlake Carroll QB @QuinnEwers is the unanimous No. 1 overall player in the class of 2022. He certainly looks the part today.
He's made several outstanding throws with his right hand thus far, but his most absurd throw came with his left. ⬇️
