MVP Camp: Quarterbacks

Sunday's MVP camp showcased arguably the top quarterback in the country, along with some young quarterbacks who are already hearing from major college programs. Here are some of the top performers at quarterback.

Cartersville (GA) star quarterback Trevor Lawrence might be the best high school quarterback in the country, regardless of classification.  Once again, Trevor proved why he is judged so highly by making all the throws at Sunday's MVP camp.  The 6-foot-6 190-pound Lawrence certainly looks the part physically, and has the arm to be very special at the next level.  When he wasn't talking to reporters, the state champion quarterback threw dimes all over the field the entire afternoon.  Clemson, Georgia, and Tennessee are the top three for Lawrence at the moment, with an upcoming visit to Florida planned for early April.

Heard County (GA) QB Emory Jones is an impressive 2018 quarterback who has reeled in multiple SEC offers up to this point.  Jones was not able to participate in the camp do to an injury, but he was there helping the campers and talking to the media.  The 6-foot-4 177-pound QB looks the part physically, and admitted that although he is a guy who can run the ball when he needs to, he is still primarily a pocket passer.  Jones has Athens before recently, and really connected with head coach Kirby Smart, as well as offensive coordinator Jim Chaney.  Jones will visit Georgia again this weekend.

A guy who really improved his stock during the MVP camp was Johns Creek (GA) QB Zach Gibson, who took home the award for top QB of the camp. The 6-foot-1 205-pound freshman was very consistent with his accuracy, and stood out in a very large group of quarterbacks.  Look for Gibson to pick up offer soon and be a top prospect in the 2019 class.

There were two 2020 prospects who stood out also in Harrison Bailey and Tee Webb.  Bailey will play in high school at Hillgrove (GA) while Webb will play at Cartersville (GA).  Bailey was listed at 6-foot-4 195-pounds and Webb was listed at 6-foot-3 and 169-pounds.  Both have great arm strength and accuracy for their age level, and almost look like college football quarterbacks already as 8th graders.  Webb currently has an offer from Louisville and Bailey has an offer from Miami.  Both have the potential to be two of the best quarterbacks in the 2020 class, and be able to pick from any school in the country.  Keep a close eye on both these talented quarterbacks in the next few years.
