Quinn Ewers enrolled in classes at Ohio State over the weekend and practiced with the team for the first time on Monday.
But he’s not a factor in the Buckeyes’ preseason camp quarterback competition.
Addressing Ewers’ arrival, coach Ryan Day reframed the expectations surrounding the heralded passing prospect from suburban Dallas and made it clear that he was still getting up to speed.
“We're going to show him the locker room and show him around the facility,” Day said. “He obviously just got here and it’s the middle of camp. So we have a good plan in place to try to get him kind of going here in camp. He’s had a great attitude and we’re happy he’s here.”
Ewers, a five-star prospect, was the top-ranked quarterback recruit in the class of 2022 before reclassifying and enrolling early, and from an early age, he had been on Ohio State’s radar as Day pointed out that he first offered him a scholarship when he was in the eighth grade.
“He’s got a tremendous amount of talent,” Day said.
