It’s no secret that Quinn Ewers is one of the most sought after quarterback prospects in history.

Prior to leaving Southlake Carroll High School one year early to cash in on some NIL deals at Ohio State, Ewers was rated the No. 1 overall prospect in the 2022 recruiting class.

On top of that, he received a perfect rating from 247Sports. He’s one of just five prospects since 2000 to sport a 1.000 grade.

Former Texas star Vince Young was one of the five, and we’re all aware of how Young’s collegiate career ended at Texas with the miraculous fourth-down scramble to win the national championship.

Fortunately for the Longhorns, they’re in prime position to potentially land Ewers from the transfer portal. The former Ohio State quarterback is scheduled to visit Austin on Saturday, and it’s now a two-horse race between Texas and Texas Tech.

It goes without saying that landing Ewers would be a monumental recruiting win for head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff.

Let’s take a look at where Ewers ranks among Texas quarterback signees since 2000.
