Mullet’ing It Over: Quinn Ewers Considering Cashing In And Skipping His Senior Year

The man with the fabulous mullet, the ESPN 300 top ranked 2022 player, and our #2 ranked Quarterback in Texas, Quinn Ewers of Southlake Carroll, may have played his last high school football game.

Ewers, ranked as the #1 player in the country by Rivals, is considering skipping his senior season of high school. Ewers has been set to attend Ohio State in 2022, but might head to the buckeye state a year early. The NIL money is the big draw.  Ewers is reported to have already be offered near seven-figures in endorsements. One such endorsement is from Holy Kombucha. They made Ewers and offer that includes cash and equity in the company. However, accepting any such offer would make Ewers ineligible for high school football.

The UIL notified Ewers on Monday that any attempt for Ewers to profit off his NIL would be in violation of Texas’ recent legislation regarding Name Image and Likeness. Therefore, Ewers must decide between playing his senior season, or taking the money now.

Quinn Ewers Statement:

“I don’t really know, I don’t have a final decision made quite yet,” Ewers said in a phone interview on Wednesday. “I’m leaning toward leaving and going up to Ohio, just so I don’t have to deal with UIL stuff and can get comfortable with Ohio and Columbus and start to learn.”

Ewers would be able to take an online course, graduate, and join Ohio State in-time to to play football there this fall. Ohio State currently has a three-way battle for their starting QB position, but Ewers would be highly likely to be able to not only compete right away for the starting job, but win it. The lure of the money, along with the chance to possible start at QB for a likely national championship contending Ohio State Buckeyes might be too tough for Ewers to pass up.

Southlake Carrol has a strong chance to make a deep run next season and return to the State Championship game. We were all looking forward to another Quinn Ewers vs Cade Klubnik showdown, but we might need to wait for an Ohio State vs Clemson College Playoff game to see them battle on the field again.

Ewers decision will also likely set somewhat of a precedent. A lot of eyes are on him. If he does skip his senior season, we can expect to see others follow this year. It could become a trend for the top players, with scholarships already secure, to skip their senior season.
