Jason Faulkenberry, a QB in the 2019 class, was at The Show camp last week on the Oklahoma State campus. Faulkenberry, listed by Scout as 6-2, 178-pound, performed well but was one of the younger QBs at camp.

“I feel I did alright.” Said Faulkenberry on his performance at the camp. “Sometimes I made a couple of bad throws I really need to work on and I really need to work on my footwork a lot. But, it was an alright day.”

He has a good arm, but his mechanics and his deep passes could use some work, and when asked he said he needed to work on arm strength and getting a tighter spiral more consistently. But he has tremendous upside as he’s only going into his junior season and there’s a ton of time to work on things. He has a good drop back and great vision down the field and has good decision-making capabilities.

One of the main things that Faulkenberry will benefit from is experience. Taking more reps, especially in game/pressure situations because when the coaching staff moved everyone over to BPS to start the one-on-one drills, his accuracy dropped a little bit when the pressured was higher. And like he said working on footwork.

“Yes Duke.” Said Faulkenberry when I asked about if there were any schools starting the recruiting process. “I mean, they called me the other day and I’m going to their camp later this week. They’re really coming on hard, and Baylor. They’re starting to come on hard a little bit.” But when I asked him if there were any schools that he wanted to start looking, the first thing he said was “Oklahoma State for sure.”
