PonyStampede's QB standouts at Dreammaker

DALLAS, Texas -- The Steve Clarkson Dreammaker World Tour took place on the campus of SMU on Saturday and Scout.com was there in full force to watch all the action. Come inside to see what players impressed PonyStampede.com!

The standouts in attendance:

J.W. Walsh (Denton Guyer)- committed to OSU
Walsh showed throughout the day why plenty of schools lined up for the two-year starter. Not only was his arm strength one of the best in attendance, his accuracy was in the top three as well. He threw a tight spiral and great movement in the pocket. His toughest throw on the day was to targets over the middle, which is often a strong suit for the Scout.com No. 5 quarterback. His only criticism from the coaches at times were his footwork. He moved fast enough, but sometimes didn't have the greatest balance.

Brandon Allen (Fayetteville HS)- committed to Arkansas
The Scout.com three-star quarterback was just a step behind Walsh, but it was just a small one. He threw a tight ball and showed good accuracy. What he did do better than Walsh was when throw against his body over the middle in agility drills.

The best of the rest:

Preston Dewey (Westlake Austin)- SMU, Baylor, TCU, A&M, Mississippi State

Behind Wake Forest signee Tanner Rice for the past couple of seasons, Dewey is trying to prove to coaches that he is ready to be a big time recruit. On more than one occasion, recruiting services and Clarkson's coaches were asking who the junior was. He showed great accuracy and threw a very tight football. At times his release point was a bit high, but it didn't seem to hurt his accuracy.

Brandon Keaton (Camden Fairview)- TCU

After being thrusted into duty because of injury Bradon Keaton threw over 800 yards for Camden Fairview in four and a half games last season. In the second group of quarterbacks Keaton might have been the most accurate passer in the stadium. His arm strength isn't completely there, but should come in time. He showed that he was able to throw every pass and was athletic in the pocket. He let a few passes sail on him, but all the quarterbacks did with tough windy conditions. He is a bit undersized, but should hopefully grow. He is definitely a June Jones style of quarterback and should be tracked by SMU fans.

Ryan Polite (DeSoto)- SMU, Kansas, Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Kansas State

Polite had his up and down moments on Saturday, but when he was on, he was on. He showed good zip behind the ball and a very nice release point. The Clarkson's coaches biggest concerns were with his feet work. He does a very good job moving in the pocket, but gets almost tangled up every once in a while. He also at times didn't plant his feet to throw, throwing off the back of his heels.

Jordy Albert (Booker T. Washington)- Arkansas, ISU, Tech, Tulsa

Albert was in the second group and was able to standout. He only played in two games last season, due to transferring confusion at Booker T. Washington. In those two games, he was 2-0, beating two playoff teams, and threw for over 300 yards. He wasn't the hardest throwing quarterback, and he wasn't the most accurate, but he was near the top in both categories. His senior year will be crucial, but if the camp circuit is anything like Sunday, he should get some looks. He has good size, and moves well for a bigger quarterback.

Other quarterbacks in attendance: Mitch Manley (Pittsburg), Brad Hudson (Great Bridge), Dustin Walton (Raton), Aaron Shockey (Haltom), Driphus Jackson (Cedar Hill), Troy Bitterie (Portis Northern), Chatle Williams (Duncanville), Pete Maetzoid (Friendwood), Paul Millard (Flower Mound), Grant Peterson (Westwood), Dylan Warner (MacArthur), Joe Minden (Coppell), Zach Arnold (Plano East)
