Quinn Ewers’ high school coach releases statement on decision to enroll at Ohio State year early
One of the highest rated quarterback recruits of all time will be arriving in the state of Ohio a year earlier than expected. Southlake Carroll High School, Texas five-star talent Quinn Ewers released a statement Monday confirming his intention to skip his senior year of high school and enroll as a qualified player at OSU this fall.
It was a story that worked its way through the news cycle pretty quickly, and there is no doubt that it will be a polarizing topic across the college landscape. Ewers is one of the most marketable kids you will find, and he's poised to make a ton of money in referrals and other financial rewards through new opportunities with name, image, and likeness. Chances he doesn't have as a high school athlete in Texas.
Lost in all of this, his teammates and coaches at Southlake Carroll High School in Southlake, Texas feel lost. As in society, there are sure to be opinions on both sides of the fence.
Ewers 'high school trainer Riley Dodge took to Twitter to comment on Ewers' decision. It wasn't a long statement, but one in which Dodge agreed to turn the page for his soccer team while complimenting the person who is Ewers.
"We acknowledge the University Interscholastic League's in-depth research into Texas NIL legislation to determine what is lawful for Texas high school athletes," Dodge wrote. “After collecting and analyzing all of the information, Quinn decided that the best thing for his future would be to skip his senior year. The entire Dragon community will miss Quinn very much on and off the field. He is an incredible young man who exemplifies what it means to be a dragon - he inspires his teammates to excel and shows what excellence looks like in the classroom and on the field.
“Dragon Nation is very proud of what Quinn has achieved and we wish him all the best for Ohio State. At this point in time, we respectfully ask everyone that our program can continue to focus on the 2021 football season and our Dragon athletes. "
It'll be interesting to see how the Ewers high school team get on without him pulling the trigger under the middle. The state of Texas program is proud, but if no child comes back with their talent, a huge void will be left. Hopefully whoever sits next in the saddle can be the next best for the team.
