Quinn Ewers agrees to deal with sports marketing giant

Former Southlake Carroll quarterback Quinn Ewers, who graduated in early August, signed another NIL deal while in Ohio State. On Tuesday, Ewers struck a multi-year deal worth $ 1.4 million with GT Sports Marketing, which handles athlete autographs.

This is Ewers’ third NIL contract. He also signed an NIL endorsement in August with Holy Kombucha, a Texas-based beverage in Dallas, and with Ricart Automotive in Columbus, Ohio.

Ewers announced on Aug. 2 that he was giving up his final season at Carroll and signing up early at Ohio State for the opportunity to secure NIL deals worth up to seven figures. High school players in Texas are not allowed to profit from their name, image or likeness.

The former 5-star QB reclassified and became the country’s No.1 soccer player among the 2021 promotion, according to 247Sports.

Ewers, 18, has more than 130,000 followers between Twitter and Instagram.

He is eligible to play at Ohio State this season.

Ewers threw for 6,500 yards and 73 touchdowns in two seasons for Carroll. He led the Dragons to a state semifinal appearance in 2019 and the Class 6A Division 1 state championship game in January.

In the sophomore, Ewers completed 72% of his passes and threw 45 touchdowns as Carroll went 13-1. Ewers was named Star-Telegram’s Offensive Player of the Year.
