Alabama: The QB Report

Alabama has a trio of quarterbacks committed in the state already, and will add another before the calendar turns to July. Check out the latest with a dozen signal-callers, including some athletes to watch, inside.

Committed

  • Malik Rosier | Three-star | Mobile (Ala.) Faith Academy

    Skinny: The top quarterback in the state popped for Miami this week, in somewhat of a surprising move. It wasn't a surprise to see him select the Hurricanes, but to do it so soon was. Rosier, arguably one of the top dual-threat talents nationwide, was still waiting to hear from some SEC schools after positive feedback after camp performances. However, he went with his gut and childhood favorite in the end, but Scout feels that the SEC won't lose Rosier to an ACC school without a fight. Stay tuned here.

  • Gunner Roach | Two-star | Mobile (Ala.) UMS-Wright

    Skinny: Somewhat under the radar despite winning a state title in 2012, Roach also did considerably well on the camp circuit in route to a few offers. Wanting to get the decision out of the way and focus on proving people wrong at the next level was the reason he pledged to Southern Miss early in the summer. The offense at USM suits the crafty QB better than most.

  • Devlin Hodges | Two-star | Morris (Ala.) Mortimer Jordan

    Skinny: Competing with Roach for the foreseeable future at USM will be Hodges, another efficient player that can run when needed - like Roach. The two are neck-and-neck in the state rankings, and the debate as to who's better should carry on for the next four years should each follow through and sign with the Golden Eagles, who are once again doing a great job recruiting in Alabama.


    Best on the board

  • Kendrick Doss | Florence (Ala.)

    Skinny: Doss has been quiet on the recruiting trail after a big-time spring in which he collected major SEC offers including Ole Miss, Tennessee and Mississippi State among others. Another run-pass prospect, the Florence star seems to be taking his time with the process and letting the chips fall where they may with some of the schools near the top of his list. In-state Auburn and Tennessee seem poised to make the best run at landing the No. 2 QB in the state.

    Updated: Doss committed to Ole Miss on Friday afternoon in somewhat of a surprise move.

  • Matthew Jordan | Jackson (Ala.)

    Skinny: The top running quarterback in 2014 is Jordan, who has actually worked out at multiple positions at various camps, including at Alabama's in mid-June. But make no mistake, Jordan wants to play QB in college and he has the chance to do so at over a dozen schools that have offered. Ready to take the next step, Jordan has a top five of Nebraska, Georgia Tech, South Alabama, Middle Tennessee and Louisiana-Lafayette. He will announce his commitment on Saturday (June 29).


    Jordan comes off the board on Saturday.

  • Hayden Moore | Clay-Chalkville (Ala.)

    Skinny: Moore has one of the best arms in the state, and his offers are beginning to reflect that fact. He now has extensions from Western Kentucky, UAB, Southern Miss, Middle Tennessee and Jacksonville State. Moore seems to be in little rush to make a decision, as he waits to hear from SEC programs that he camped at including Alabama, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Memphis.

  • Devin Adams | Prichard (Ala.) Vigor

    Skinny: The 6-foot-3, 233-pounder will have some looks to play on defense at the next level, but his running ability and arm-strength is undeniable. Not many can bring him down one-on-one, and the rising senior looks to pass primarily once he escapes the pocket. Scout expects a big senior year from Adams, who has the chance to shoot up the rankings based on his size and potential.

  • Jeremy Joseph | Auburn (Ala.) Lee-Scott Academy

    Skinny: The tallest QB in Alabama's class of 2014 is the 6-foot-6 , 225-pound Joseph. He's as raw as it gets as a passer in his throwing motion and delivery, but he surveys the field well and isn't afraid of the big moment. His stature and presence gets the attention of many, so he'll have the chance to snag some offers as a senior in Auburn's backyard.


    Sleepers to keep an eye on

  • Jamey Mosley | Theodore (Ala.)

    Skinny: The younger brother of Alabama senior linebacker C.J. Mosley was a linebacker himself until this spring, when he transformed himself into an intriguing dual-threat option. His four offers are to play on the defensive side of the ball at the next level, but a big senior year as a signal-caller may go a long way. Mosley impressed at a recent QB Country camp in which he held his own against top Alabama QB Rosier throughout the event.

  • Jacob Parker | Huntsville (Ala.) Westminster Christian

    Skinny: This big dual-threat has an offer from Air Force as a linebacker or edge-rusher type, and that's likely where he will see his college opportunities come from. However, he has shown improvement in his arm in addition to his already solid, and powerful, running ability.

  • Will Edwards | Birmingham (Ala.) Briarwood Christian

    Skinny: The over-the-top throwing Edwards has a strong arm and a quick twitch that helps to mask the time it takes for the ball to get out of his hands. Couple that with an unofficial 4.50 40-yard dash time at Southern Miss' June camp, and second-tier offers may be headed his way in the fall.
