DawgPost Wednesday Recruiting Update

While the state of Georgia has produced some high level quarterbacks in the 2017 class, it's becoming clear that the 2018 bunch in Georgia could be even better. The 2018 class is led by Trevor Lawrence and Emory Jones, but there are three other quarterbacks in this class who could see their recruitment take off sooner than later.

Jarren Williams, Central Gwinnett

Williams is a prospect who has really burst onto the recruiting scene lately.  The 2018 gunslinger has shows good footwork on film, and has the size early that coaches are looking for.  Williams is currently 6-foot-3 201-pounds with the ability to move well in the pocket and escape when needed.  He isn’t the fastest guy, but he reads the defense well and can pick up yards with his feet if he doesn’t find a receiver down the field.

On film Williams shows good but not great arm strength, but his accuracy is a trait that really stood out.  He looked accurate on intermediate throws, and throws a catchable deep ball that fall right over the defenders head.

Williams currently hold offers from Florida State, Louisville, Maryland, Boston College, West Virginia, and Colorado.  Looks for more offers to keep rolling in for the junior from Lawrenceville.

Jacob Brumby, Pickens County

Another intriguing quarterback prospect I saw recently was Pickens County (GA) quarterback Jacob Brumby.  His size stands out immediately at 6-foot-6 200-pounds, and he has a extremely live arm.  He spins the ball well, runs well, and has the overall look of a quarterback.

He didn’t play much his sophomore season, but took over the job late in the year.  He could use some work on his footwork and accuracy at times, but he’s a good looking prospect.  He has the size and arm strength that will start getting attention soon. 

With a strong performance at the MVP camp next weekend, look for his recruitment to start picking up this summer and into his junior season.  Brumby holds no offers currently, but he has the potential to earn some soon.

Luke Shiflett, Northwest Whitfield

Shiflett is another interesting quarterback prospect in this class.  He isn’t the biggest guy, but he runs well and does a nice job of eluding tackles and finishing runs.

He was very accurate on film and times his throws very well.  He throws an accurate ball on the run, and throws a catchable ball that leads the receiver.  I would like to see him throw more under pressure as well as go through his options a little more, but he can an exceptional sophomore season doing what he was asked.

Shiflett also does turn the ball over as he only threw two interceptions last season, while throwing for 19 touchdowns. Colombia is currently Shiflett’s only offer.
