Dawg Post Friday Recruiting Update:

Dawg Post takes a look at three under-the-radar quarterbacks in the 2017 class.

Davis Shanley, South Forsyth

Shanley is a guy who burst on the scene last year as a junior.  The Cumming native led the War Eagles deep into the playoffs, and played an incredible game against the state-champion Colquitt County Packers.  The 6-foot-2 175-pounder threw for 2,375 yards and 25 touchdowns, while rushing for 715 yards and eight touchdowns.  Western Kentucky and North Carolina are the two latest offers, with a chance for more on the way.  Georgia Tech was the team Shanley grew up watching, and attended a camp there last month.  Shanley escapes the pocket well, and makes just as many plays behind the line of scrimmage eluding tackles as he down down the field.  He throws the ball well on the run, and does a great job of keeping his eyes down field while scrambling.  He doesn't break down when the play seems lost, and he throws a very catchable ball.  He shows good accuracy and can make plays with his arm, but his play-making ability running the ball could mean the War Eagles are in for another big season in 2016.

Isaiah Green, Langston Hughes

Green is a guy I like more and more when I see him. The 6-foot-3 200-pound Green is currently committed to Marshall, but there is a good chance some bigger schools might come calling soon.  He excelled last season as the offense was spread out, and Green was able to hit easy targets over the middle all season.  He stays in the pocket well, has quick feet, and shows zip on his throws.  He has great accuracy on his short slant throws.

Green also has the ability to create plays with his feet.  He is a passer first,and not exactly a true dual-threat quarterback, but he shows good instincts in the pocket and does a nice job of buying time.  Green was with his 7 on 7 team in Athens last month and he was very impressive.  He spread the ball the ball to his receivers well, and scored at will the entire tournament.  If bigger schools come calling, Green might give his commitment a second thought.

Cameron Turley, Mill Creek

Turley is a solid quarterback who has yet to really burst onto the recruiting scene. The 6-foot-3 195-pound Turley shows a strong arm on film and throws an accurate ball on the run.  He's a smart kid who can read a defense well, and led a good Mill Creek team all the way to the state championship last season. As a junior, Turley threw for 2,458 yards and 18 touchdowns, while only throwing three interceptions.  Turley has good size, and his arm is only getting better.  Look for Turley to have a big season season in 2016.  He is a sleeper quarterback to watch in the state of Georgia.
