Quinn Ewers is born and raised in the state of Texas. The state of Texas is where he needs to be.
After spending his redshirt freshman year at Ohio State, the No. 1 quarterback in the (reclassified) Class of 2022 transferred to play for the Longhorns during the offseason. It suits him well.
And now he has appears to have new tattoo that lets everybody know where his allegiance lies.
The University of Texas began its spring practice on Tuesday in its second year under head coach Steve Sarkisian. The biggest storyline to watch out of Austin is at quarterback.
Ewers, a former five-star recruit, begins his first full year on the collegiate level. Meanwhile, Hudson Card is a former four-star recruit who will be a redshirt sophomore and began 2021 as the starter before being replaced by Casey Thompson.
The last update before spring ball left it as an open competition between the two. However, the expectation is that the freshman phenom will win the job.
Ewers and his glorious mullet were putting in work on spring break last week and his street cred in the locker room instantly skyrocketed with his rap knowledge earlier this year. It would be a surprise, but not outrageous, if Ewers was not under center for the Longhorns come Week 1.
The first look at Quinn Ewers as a Texas Longhorns quarterback just feels right.
From Ewers’ mullet to his rolled-up sleeves, he just looks like a Texas football signal-caller. He looks the part and he can sure as heck back it up with his arm.
In addition, to his new uniform, Ewers appeared to be sporting a new Longhorns tattoo on his thigh.
Here’s another, closer look:

The tattoo was definitely not there prior to his transfer back to his home state.
Clearly, Ewers is all-in on the Longhorns. The only question now is whether he will win the job outright.
