Atlanta Opening: Top QBs

Sunday's Atlanta Opening region featured some of the top quarterbacks in the entire country. Although the wind was heavy through some parts of the day, the quarterbacks overall threw the ball very well.

Here are some of the top performing QB's from today's Atlanta Opening.

Chase Brice, 2017, Grayson

Grayson QB Chase Brice had a great day today, and took home the award for top overall QB.  The Clemson commit has good size at 6-foot-3 200-pounds and showed good arm strength in the midst of cold and windy temperatures.  When Brice missed he tended to miss high, but hit his target most times than not.  He was very consistent on his accuracy, especially on intermediate passes, and hit the back in stride when he checked down.  Very strong day for the future Clemson Tiger.

Jake Fromm, 2017, Houston County

Another guy who impressed throwing the ball was Georgia Bulldog commit Jake Fromm.  The Houston County star had an incredible jenior year, and just recently flipped his verbal pledge from Alabama to Georgia.  Fromm wore a Bulldog cap the entire day, and made the Bulldog fans in attendance smile with every throw.  He was not the biggest QB in attendance, but Fromm is well built and is very strong.  He showed the ability to throw the ball deep down the field, and showed good accuracy throughout the day.

Trevor Lawrence 2018, Cartersville

The Cartersville star proved again why many experts believe he is the top high school quarterback in the country.  Lawrence has great size at 6-foot-6 196-pounds, and stood out physically among the rest of the quarterbacks in attendance.  He showed fantasic footwork once again, and showed great arm strength and accuracy.  Early in the day Lawrence was grouped with other QB's in his class, but proved throughout the day that he not only belonged with the best, he was the best.  Lawrence has all the tools to be a program changing QB at the next level.  Tennessee, Georgia, and Clemson are the top three schools currently for Lawrence.

Bailey Hockman, 2017, McEachern

Another 2017 prospect who threw the ball well today was former Georgia Bulldog commit and four-star QB Bailey Hockman.  The lefty showed good accuracy all day, and was one of the more consistent passers in attendance.  He missed high and wide a couple of times, but Hockman throws a very nice and catchable ball on a regular basis.  His arm strength is what impressed me the most and is something he continues to improve on.  Like Fromm he isn't the biggest guy out there at 6-foot-2 186-pounds, but he has the arm to deliver the ball deep downfield.  He threw well on the run, and again was impressive with his accuracy.

Emory Jones, 2018, Heard County

Jones is a 2018 dual-threat QB whose recruitment has really picked up recently.  The 6-foot-3 190-pound Jones moves well when scrambling, and throws a good accurate ball with some zip.  Jones is coming off an injury so he was slightly rusty at the beginning, but he made some really nice throws in the later session.  Tennessee is the team trending right now for one of the top QB's in the south for the 2018 class.
