Quinn Ewers announced his return to the Texas Longhorns for his senior season known on social media on Thursday.
Several people thought that Ewers, one of the best quarterbacks in the NCAA, would enter the NFL draft after he helped the Longhorns to a College Football Playoff appearance this past season.
After losing to the Washington Huskies in the CFP playoffs, though, Ewers might still be owing something.
In a video posted on Instagram, Ewers stated, “One more year with my teammates and one more year of development with Coach Sark [Steve Sarkisian] made the most sense.”
Though there were rumours that Ewers decision to stick around and work with Sarkisian and the Longhorns offence once more, his decision may not come as a huge surprise to many.
In order to play against the best college football teams, Texas will relocate to the SEC for the upcoming season.
Georgia’s Carson Beck and Ewers are anticipated to contend for the title of best college football quarterback in 2024, and both are projected to be top picks in the 2025 NFL Draft.
As Ewers returns, it will be interesting to see what the highly anticipated Texas prospect Arch Manning does in the future. In 2024, Manning—the nephew of Peyton and Eli Manning—will be a genuine sophomore.
Throughout a total of 12 games, Ewers completed 69% of his throws for 3,479 yards, 22 touchdowns, and six interceptions while maintaining a 158.6 passing efficiency rating. From his 2022 season, when he passed for 2,177 yards and 15 touchdowns with a 58.1% completion percentage over 10 games, he improved in almost every area.
In the win over the Alabama Crimson Tide, Ewers threw for 349 yards and three touchdowns, making it one of his best games.
Texas starter Jared Ewers, who is 16-6 overall, told ESPN that he wants to “grow as a leader and win more games” the following year.
“I want to be the quarterback who worked every year to get better,” he explained. “The quarterback who loved his teammates. The quarterback who won a lot of football games and brought Texas football back to the top of college football, where it belongs.”
After making it to the College Football Playoffs this past season, Ewers is aware that his decision will be met with high expectations. Adonai Mitchell and Xavier Worthy, his top two wide receivers, both declared for the draft, so he will also be without them.
