1. Chad Henne – 6-3, 210, 4.65 Wilson (Pa.) West Lawn
Henne is the best quarterback I've seen on film this year.
He has a rocket for an arm and can make any throw on the football field. More
than 30 schools offered a scholarship. This big time gunslinger scheduled a
press conference to name his five finalists. Georgia, Miami, Penn State, Michigan and Tennessee all have a shot at
signing Henne and a decision could come before the start of the 2003
Morelli – 6-4, 210, 4.7 Pittsburgh (Pa.) Penn
Morelli could easily be #1b. He will attend his second "Elite
11" quarterback camp in July and he's one of the top five quarterback prospects
in the nation. Several schools are still in the hunt for his services. Notre Dame and Florida State could be in the
drivers seat but Anthony could shock the recruiting world by staying home and
signing with Pittsburgh.
Hoyer – 6-4, 195 4.7 Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius
2,130 yards and 19 touchdowns for one of the perennial Midwest powers. Hoyer was
definitely the cream of the quarterback crop at the (Ann Arbor) Nike Camp which
Turner and several other top quarterback prospects. John L. Smith loves St.
Ignatius quarterbacks (Dave
Ragone) and Michigan State could land quite
a gem here but the Spartans will get some competition from Maryland and others.
Painter – 6-4, 205, 4.65 Vincennes (Ind.) Lincoln
This Southern Indiana quarterback blew me away on
film with his arm strength and athletic ability. Painter, in my opinion, is the
best kept secret in the Midwest as far as quarterbacks are concerned. Curtis is
also a super basketball player but football is definitely his calling. Threw for
2,122 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior and was named all-state. Purdue, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Illinois and others are in the
Savage – 6-4, 210, 4.7 Haverford (Pa.)The Haverford School
about unlucky? Savage just happens to live in the same state as Chad Henne and
Anthony Morelli, two of the top quarterbacks not only in the Keystone State but
the entire country. Savage was relatively unknown during the May Evlaution
period but a strong showing at the (State College) Nike Camp bolstered his stock
considerably. On film, Savage shows he has what it takes to play quarterback in
the Big Ten conference and he'll get that chance next year at the University of Wisconsin, where he has given his
