Precision Is The Name Of Their Game

When you think of productive high school quarterbacks, statistics and arm strength usually catch more attention than any other factor. But as the game evolves and offensive and defensive coordinators outduel each other, precision tends to become just as important as the other talents. There are 5 quarterbacks in the class of 2017 that prove precision and accuracy, while not as glossy and exciting as the deep ball, are highly recruitable attributes.

These five athletes are very efficient and very accurate passers. As scouts will see from their film, these young athletes possess the rare ability to throw extremely accurate passes while inside the pocket and when forced to scramble. More valuable on game day may be their field vision and great anticipation, which can constantly break down coverages and give receivers time to find holes in the defense. Last but certainly not least is the noticeable throwing and footwork mechanics on each quarterback that are certainly more developed than most above average high school quarterbacks. Barring injuries, we can expect to see these five on the top of all recruiting lists at the end of the fall.
