Quinn Ewers has undergone a massive change this offseason. The Texas Longhorns quarterback has trimmed his luscious locks ahead of the 2023 season.
The former No. 1 overall recruit is making waves online following his recent transformation, but college football fans aren’t sure how to take it.
The star passer just finished up his first season in Austin, throwing for 2,177 yards and 15 scores. While the Ohio State transfer let some viewers down with that production, many around the program are still excited about his future at the helm.
Ewers was able to lead the Longhorns to an 8-5 record after the team won just five games in 2021. Unfortunately, he wasn’t able to secure a win in the Alamo Bowl, the first Texas bowl loss in the last five tries.
But a change is on the way.
The signal caller recently made a massive transformation that has many around the college football world talking.
Quinn Ewers chopped off his famed mullet, which has many online wondering how it will affect his future. This is the same mullet that’s landed him a number of NIL deals in Austin.
Teammate Xavier Worthy posted a video to his Instagram account showing the quarterback’s new look. Take a look at the reaction on social media.

Now, many Texas fans see this as a newfound focus on the future.
One fan wrote, “Longhorns are winning it all next season, let’s go!!!”
Another said, “The first step in his Heisman trophy campaign.”
Others see the haircut as a loss of power. Think about Sampson losing his strength after having his locks cut off.
This fan commented, “0-12 incoming.”
Quinn Ewers is expected to improve upon last season, and he’s still considered a Heisman candidate heading into the 2023 campaign. We’ll see if he’s able to he’s able to live up to that expectation next year, and whether or not his haircut provides a better outcome for the likely Big XII favorites.
