The Lassiter MVP Camp this past Sunday showcased some serious talent at the quarterback position. While there were many quarterbacks competing in the camp, there were a select few that caught my attention and stood out among the group.
Luke Shiflet of Northwest Whitfield (GA) 2018 was a guy I was really lookijg forward to see at this camp. The 6-foot-1 176-pound quarterback is a little light, but he is an excellent runner who can make plays with his feet. Shiflet ran a 4.7 in the 40-yard dash in a slight rain, and displayed quick feet in drills. Siflett has picked up numerous offers over the last few weeks, with the most recent coming from Mercer and Georgia Southern. I beliebe more offers are on the way for this talented 2018 prospect
Will Lovett of North Cobb (GA) also had a great day, winning the award for the best quarterback at the camp. The 6-foot-3 228-pound signal caller was one of the heavier prospects in the position, but he carries it well and has the look of a college quarterback. He made some strong throws deep downfield and throws a very catch-able pass. Troy has offered the 2017 quarterback, with mutiple teams showing interest. Look for his recruitment to pick up this summer and into his senior season
AJ Curry of Stephens County (GA) was the guy who stood out physically. The 6-foot-4 200-pound athlete has the bod to play reciever, but he showed the arm of a legitimate college quarterback. He throws the ball with a little zip, but needs to continue working on his accuracy and mechanics as a quarterback overall. He did have a good day though, and could be in for a big 2017 season with continues improvement this summer. He is another 2018 to look out for down the road.
Tylan Morton of Griffin (GA) continues to impress when I see him. Like many of the quarterbacks in camp, Morton is a big guy who looks the part physically at 6-foot-5 183-pounds, and threws some very nice passes, many of them during the showcase portion of the camp. He might have gotten my vote for the best quaterback pefrormance of the day. He threw accuracte passes short and over the middle, and completed some deep balls down the field as well. Look for more schools to shart showing interest in this 2017 passer moving forward.
Jacob Brumby of Pickens County (GA) might be the best 2018 quarterbcak that nobody is talking about. He took over the starting job last year as a sophomore, and I am expecting a big 2016 season for the 6-foot-6 200-pounder. He has a strong ar, but could work on releasing the ball a little quicker. He also showed he can run well. He has the size and arm coaches look for, and like many of the other campers, he just needs to continue to work on every aspect of his game. Brumby is another talented quarterback in Georgia for the 2018 class who could start hearing from schools later this summer.
