Breaking down top college football recruit Quinn Ewers' commitment to Ohio State

Ohio State added the No. 1-ranked prospect to its recruiting class for the third class in a row when 2022 quarterback Quinn Ewers announced his commitment on Thursday.

The 6-foot-3, 205-pound quarterback has been widely known as one of the best quarterbacks in the country. He had originally committed to Texas in August, but decommitted in late October.

Since he's from Southlake, Texas, he was thought to be someone who could bring Texas up a notch on offense and in recruiting, in terms of helping keep other top in-state prospects home. That thought is long gone with his decommitment and now commitment to Ohio State, and the Longhorns are still searching for a quarterback in the 2022 class.

Such a high-profile decommitment raises questions for what happened at Texas, and such a giant commitment raises eyebrows of what could be at Ohio State. Here's a look at what happened with Ewers' decommitment, what it means for Ohio State and Texas going forward.
