The QB Collective is proud to have imparted some of our wisdom last summer to these 16 quarterbacks. Here’s a brief recap of where they all are heading.
Justin Fields – Georgia
The No. 2 overall player in the country according to Rivals.com, Fields’ skills have rightfully been compared to Cam Newton. He could challenge Jake Fromm and Jacob Eason for playing time next season. Fields enrolled early to Georgia and will partake in spring practice.
JT Daniels – USC
The Gatorade national player of the year committed to the Trojans on signing day, catapulting USC’s class ranking. Coach Clay Helton said Daniels will compete for a starting spot this fall. Daniels is forgoing his senior season at Mater Dei after a 4,123-yard, 52 touchdown, perfect 15-0 season.
Cameron Rising – Texas
A dual-threat quarterback who received 25 major offers, Rising decided on the Longhorns in December. He’ll enroll early and have a chance to show off his arm, rated as one of the strongest in the country.
Matt Corral – Ole Miss
One of the top pro-style quarterbacks in the country, Corral flipped from Florida to Ole Miss in December, citing the family atmosphere coach Matt Luke has brought to the program. Corral threw for more than 10,000 yards and 100 touchdowns in his high school career. He’ll will enroll early with the Rebels.
Artur Sitkowski – Rutgers
After honing his skills at IMG academy in Florida, Sitkowski shocked the college football world by committing to Rutgers over Miami in November. The New Jersey native is ecstatic to get back home and turn the Scarlet Knights into a competitive program in the Big Ten.
Tanner McKee – Stanford
One of the biggest announcements on signing day came from McKee, who committed to coach David Shaw and the Cardinal. A devout Mormon, McKee will go on his two-year mission before embarking on his college fooball career.
Colson Yankoff – Washington
The Idaho native was an early commit for the Huskies and has a vast skill set. He ran a 4.6 in the 40-yard dash and entered his senior year with a 4.3 weighted grade-point average. Washington is getting a sharp quarterback who will likely compete for playing time this fall.
J.T. Shrout – Tennessee
The biggest story coming out of QB Collective, Shrout turned heads among the NFL coaches and skyrocketed up recruiting boards. After committing to Cal in the fall, Shrout was enticed by new Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt and ultimately decided to become a Volunteer.
John Stephen Jones – Arkansas
The grandson of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, John Stephen is a winner. He led Highland Park to two state championships, including a 564-yard performance and a 10-point comeback win in the 2017 title. The Razorbacks are getting a winner with a lot of potential.
John Holcombe – Kansas State
A strapping athlete with pro size, Holcombe is one of the crown jewels of the Wildcats recruiting class. The Texas native was lauded for being one of the toughest players in the area and he’ll bring dual-threat capabilities as a runner, too.
Zack Annexstad – Minnesota
Following the family footsteps, Annexstad joins his father and big brother as a member of the Gopher football family. While training this season at IMG academy in Florida, Annexstad convinced two highly-touted offensive linemen to join him in Minnesota, giving the school it’s highest ranked recruiting class of the decade. Talk about a leader.
Michael Penix – Indiana
After Tennessee made a coaching change, Penix decided the Hooisers were the best fit for his spread passing skill set. The lefty tosses 61 touchdowns and just six interceptions the last two seasons and enrolled into school this winter. Starting from day one in Bloomington looks very realistic.
Jalen Chatman – Rutgers
The California native will join Sitkowski in a revamped Scarlet Knights quarterback position. Chatman has been apart of four state championship teams and will bring a winning attitude along with his dual-threat skill set to Rutgers.
Gunnar Holmberg – Duke
A Blue Devil commit way back in the summer of 2016, Holmberg has been described as a natural playmaker. David Cutcliffe is regarded as one of the best quarterback teachers and will have a chance to mold Holmberg into a difference maker.
Mason Quandt – Pennsylvania
Committing back in the summer of 2017, Quandt gives the Quakers a lot of hope at the quarterback position. The California native cited the schools prestigious academics in his announcement. Quandt is eager to get back on the field after a knee injury sidelined him for most of his senior season.
Griffin O’Connor – Yale
A young man wise beyond his years, O’Connor said his commitment to Yale was more about the next 40 to 50 years and not the next 4 to 5. O’Connor is a quarterback who can stress a defense with his arm and legs and could be a problem for Ivy League opponents for years to come.
