Quinn Ewers (Will Gallagher/IT)

Introducing the Inside Texas 2022 QB transfer tracker. With 19 Power 5 starting quarterbacks this season at new schools via the portal, Inside Texas is going to track the progress from week to week. 

There are 19 new starters at the Power 5 level, and four are in the Big 12 headlined by former On3 Consensus 5-star prospect Quinn Ewers. The conference with the most turnover through the portal at the position is the Pac-12, with seven.

Inside Texas gives a rundown of the 19 quarterbacks after the sixth week of games.

Week six game ball

This week was an easy one. Quinn Ewers receives his first game ball after a very impressive performance in his first Red River Showdown. the former On3 Consensus 5-star hit on 21 of 31 passes for 289 yards with 4 touchdowns and one interception in his first game against arch rival Oklahoma. Ewers and the Longhorns made a national statement with the 49-0 victory. The win and performance by Ewers provides him the chance to create a legacy at the university he grew up cheering for.

Big 12

Quinn Ewers (Ohio State to Texas)

Quinn Ewers beat out Hudson Card for the starting job in Austin after transferring from Ohio State in the spring. The marriage of Ewers’ downfield arm talent and Steve Sarkisian’s scheme should be a good one. Ewers was on fire in the first quarter against Alabama until an injury that will keep him on the sidelines for at least a month. His return against Oklahoma only cemented his ability to end up hearing his name called very early in the 2024 NFL Draft.

vs. UL-Monroe (52-10 W): 16 of 24 for 225 yards with 2 TD’s and 1 INT. 1 rush for -9 yards. 

vs. Alabama (20-19 L): 9 of 12 for 134 yards in less than a quarter. 

vs. Texas-San Antonio (41-20): DNP injured

vs. Texas Tech (37-34 OT L): DNP injured

vs. West Virginia (38-20 W): DNP injured

vs. Oklahoma (49-0 W): 21 of 31 for 289 yards with 4 TD’s and 1 INT. 2 rushes for 17 yards

Dillon Gabriel (UCF to Oklahoma)

After originally committing to UCLA, Dillon Gabriel flipped to Oklahoma to reunite with Jeff Lebby who was his UCF offensive coordinator. Gabriel took the field for the first time for the Sooners with 8,037 yards and 70 touchdowns in 26 career games. The redshirt junior will be a very good scheme fit in Lebby’s version of the Art Briles offense.

vs. UTEP (45-13 W): 15 of 23 for 233 yards and 2 TD’s. 6 rushes for 20 yards and a TD.

vs. Kent State (33-3 W): 21 of 28 for 296 yards with 3 TD’s. 4 rushes for -10 yards. 

vs. Nebraska (49-14 W): 16 of 27 for 230 yards and 2 TD’s. 6 rushes for 55 yards and a TD. 

vs. Kansas State (41-34 L): 26 of 39 for 330 yards and 4 TD’s. 7 rushes for 61 yards.

vs. TCU (55-24 L): 7 of 16 for 126 yards. 2 rushes for zero yards.

vs. Texas (49-0 L): DNP injured

Adrian Martinez (Nebraska to Kansas State)

Adrian Martinez wis playing his super senior season at Kansas State. Martinez has started 38 games in his career at Nebraska. He has passed for more than 8,000 yards, and rushed for over 2,000 yards. Martinez should help take some pressure off All-American tailback Deuce Vaughn.

vs. South Dakota (34-0 W): 11 of 15 for 53 yards. 13 rushes for 39 yards and a TD.

vs. Missouri (40-12 W): 9 of 20 for 101 yards. 13 rushes for 52 yards and a TD. 

vs. Tulane (17-10 L): 21 of 31 for 150 yards and a TD. 13 rushes for 59 yards. 

vs. Oklahoma (41-34 W): 21 of 34 for 234 yards with 1 TD. 21 rushes for 148 yards and 4 TD’s.

vs. Texas Tech (37-28 W): 12 of 19 for 116 yards with 1 TD. 12 rushes for 171 yards and 3 TD’s.

vs. Iowa State (10-9 W): 12 of 19 for 246 yards and 1 TD. 19 rushes for 77 yards and a TD.

JT Daniels (Georgia to West Virginia)

JT Daniels is now on this third school as a redshirt senior. In Morgantown, Daniels is reuniting with former offensive coordinator Graham Harrell. The former On3 Consensus 5-star prospect has 5,054 career passing yards with 37 touchdowns and 18 interceptions following his first games for the Mountaineers.

vs. Pittsburgh (38-31 L): 23 of 40 for 214 yards with 2 TD’s and 1 INT. 5 rushes for -23 yards and a TD.

vs. Kansas (55-42 L in OT): 28 of 40 for 365 yards with 3 TD’s and 1 INT. 2 rushes for 10 yards. 

vs. Towson (65-7 W): 16 of 24 for 174 yards with 1 TD. 1 rush for -6 yards. 

vs. Virginia Tech (33-10 W): 20 of 30 for 203 yards with 1 TD. 1 rush for -7 yards.

vs. Texas (38-20 L): 29 of 48 for 253 yards with 1 TD. 4 rushes for -14 yards.

SEC

Spencer Rattler (Oklahoma to South Carolina)

Spencer Rattler took the ball at South Carolina with lofty expectations. The former On3 Consensus 5-star prospect enters the season with 4,595 yards passing in his career, which includes a 70.1% completion percentage. The redshirt junior is looking to re-ignite his career in Shane Beamer’s program.

vs. Georgia State (35-14 W): 23 of 37 for 227 yards and 1 TD with 2 INT’s. 4 rushes for -12 yards. 

vs. Arkansas (44-30 L): 24 of 39 for 376 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. 12 rushes for -23 yards.

vs. Georgia (48-7 L): 13 of 25 for 118 yards with 2 INT’s. 2 rushes for 8 yards. 

vs. Charlotte (56-20 W): 17 of 23 for 187 yards. 3 rushes for 5 yards.

vs. Kentucky (24-14 W): 14 of 19 for 177 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. 8 rushes for 7 yards.

Jayden Daniels (Arizona State to LSU)

Arizona State transfer Jayden Daniels started for the Bayou Bengals in the opener against Florida State. A former On3 Consensus 4-star prospect, Daniels started three years for the Sun Devils throwing for 6,024 yards with 32 touchdowns and 13 interceptions. The senior with 1,288 career rushing yards and 13 scores provides the LSU staff with an off schedule dimension to the offense.

vs. Florida State (24-23 L): 26 oof 35 for 209 yards with 2 TD’s. 16 rushes for 114 yards. 

vs. Southern University (65-17 W): 10 of 11 for 137 yards with 3 TD’s. 3 rushes for 18 yards and a TD.

vs. Tennessee (40-13 L): 32 of 45 for 300 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. 16 rushes for 38 yards.

Jaxson Dart (USC to Ole Miss)

Lane Kiffin’s program won a heated transfer recruiting battle over BYU and Oklahoma for Jaxson Dart. After starting three games for USC last fall, Dart hit the portal after Lincoln Riley was hired. The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder passed for 1,353 yards with nine touchdowns and five interceptions in six games while battling injury. Dart is viewed as a prospect with an NFL ceiling, but there is competition at Ole Miss. Sophomore and former On3 Consensus 4-star prospect Luke Altmyer is also seen as possessing a high ceiling.

vs. Troy (28-10 W): 18 of 27 for 154 yards with a TD and INT. 4 rushes for 40 yards. 

vs. Central Arkansas (59-3 W): 10 of 15 for 182 yards with 2 TD’s. 2 rushes for 5 yards.

vs. Stanford (41-28 W): 20 of 27 for 341 yards with 4 TD’s. 9 rushes for 4 yards.

Michael Penix Jr. (Indiana to Washington)

The redshirt senior landed at Washington, reuniting with former Indiana offensive coordinator Kalen DeBoer. Penix can put up numbers in the Pac-12 North, but health will be the key.

Cameron Ward (Incarnate Word to Washington State)

One of the biggest hires new Washington State head coach Jake Dickert made was hiring FCS Incarnate Word head coach Eric Ward as offensive coordinator. That made the transfer of Cameron Ward a no brainer. Ward threw for over 4,600 yards last and nearly 50 touchdowns last season leading his team to the FCS playoffs.
