With the commitment of 5-star quarterback Quinn Ewers from Southlake Carroll, Texas tapped into one of the most precious resources within the entire state. Much like when a West Texas prospector finds a well of oil, the Longhorns nabbed a generational talent at the most important position on the field. By winning over Ewers, Texas is now positioned to assemble the sort of talent that can win National Championships.
It is true Texas entered the Quinn Ewers race with favorable tailwinds but when you’re recruiting the best high school prospect in the country, you can’t take anything for granted. Schools will fight tooth and nail and underscore childhood fandom shouldn’t factor; this decision should be made based on opportunity, track record of development, and winning.
