East Region: Top Uncommitted Quarterbacks

Scout.com begins a position-by-position breakdown of the top uncommitted players in the East Region's 2015 class, and it starts with the quarterbacks.

There are a few weeks left in the spring evaluation period, and the spring 7-on-7s and combines are winding down.

So, what better time to take a look at where recruiting stands?

Scout.com begins a positional breakdown of the uncommitted prospects in the East Region with a look at the top uncommitted quarterbacks:

Kai Locksley, 6-4, 185, Baltimore The Gilman School
Schools in contention: Miami, Ohio State, Texas, Oregon, Florida State, Ole Miss, Maryland, Auburn, Baylor, Virginia Tech, Florida, Stanford and Louisville
Skinny: Locksley toured a bunch of schools in the spring, and he is planning a visit to Texas and possibly Baylor later this month. He wants to trim his again in the coming weeks, and then make more visits prior to making a decision. His dad, Mike Locksley, is the offensive coordinator at Maryland, but that will not weigh heavily in his decision.

David Sills, 6-3, 180, Elkton (Md.) Eastern Christian

Schools in contention: USC, Mississippi State, Maryland, West Virginia, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Alabama and Boston College Skinny: Sills remains committed to USC, but the Trojans also have a commitment from the top quarterback in the nation in Ricky Towns. He made visits to Maryland, Penn State, Michigan, Alabama and Mississippi State, but Michigan and Penn State since landed quarterbacks in the class. He plans to visit other programs in the next few months, and said he wants to visit some SEC schools in particular.

Kyle Shurmur, 6-4, 210, Wyndmoor (Pa.) La Salle College

Schools in contention: Illinois, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Temple, Rutgers, Wake Forest, Duke, Central Florida, Cincinnati and Princeton
Skinny: Shurmur holds offers from Pittsburgh, Illinois, Temple, Buffalo and Central Michigan offered, and scores of schools came in to see him throw this spring, including Rutgers and Wake Forest. The son of Philadelphia Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur, Kyle is contemplating camping at several schools. He also is in contact with Pittsburgh frequently, and a summer decision is likely.

Elijah Robinson, 6-2, 190, Montclair (N.J.) High

Schools in contention: Army, Navy, Michigan State, Connecticut, Rutgers, Nebraska and Temple
Skinny: Robinson added offers from Army and Navy on the same day last week, and both schools want him to play quarterback. That is a huge step for Robinson, who was being recruited by schools as an athlete to play safety or receiver. A strong performance at the Elite 11 last month also caused other schools to re-think their positions on his recruitment, and schools like Rutgers, Temple and Connecticut are now contemplating the possibility Robinson plays quarterback in college.

Patrick Kehoe, 6-4, 230, Cheshire (Conn.) Academy

Schools in contention: Holy Cross, Connecticut, Rutgers, Temple, Syracuse, Old Dominion, Pittsburgh, South Florida and Lafayette
Skinny: Kehoe is a big-bodied pocket passer with a strong left arm, but schools have been hesitant to extend offers. Holy Cross is his only offer, but coaches have come through to watch him throw, including Rutgers, Pittsburgh, Maryland, Syracuse, Temple and a flurry of FCS schools. He is planning to throw at several camps, but won't set a schedule for a few weeks yet.
