Texas quarterback Quinn Ewers took to Twitter on Wednesday to promote a fan, booster and alumni reception later this month where he will sell his signed jersey and have photo ops with his supporters.
“What up y’all! Come join me on Saturday evening, 7/22 in Austin for my first fan, booster, and alumni event,” he said on the social media app. “Every ticket holder gets a signed jersey from me! Proceeds going to @VetsandPlayers.”
Ewers shared a link for fans to make reservations. The price for the reception varies from $35 to $2,000. The event will take place at Golfinity in Cedar Park, Texas.

General admission gets you drink tickets, hor d’euvres, a photo op with Ewers, and a signed jersey. And in the age of NIL, Ewers will be open to corporate sponsorships.
His NIL sponsorship with the NFT company, Metabilia, helped set up this event. Among his other NIL deals, Ewers has signed on to promote the likes of Lucchese Bootmaker, the video game Fortnite, Wrangler, Aston Martin Dallas, and the fast-food company Sonic.
Ewers is coming off his freshman season where he was named honorable mention Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year by the league’s coaches. The former 5-star recruit was the sixth Longhorn freshman to start the season opener and the fifth to lead Texas to victory.
He played and started in 10 games in which he threw for 2,177 yards with 15 touchdowns and six interceptions. Ewers is projected to be the Longhorns starting quarterback but will have to fend off the No. 1 recruit in the 2023 class, Arch Manning, who is set for his freshman season.
The Longhorns open the 2023 season when they host Rice on Sept. 2.
