We know the talent that Bailey possesses as a quarterback but one with supreme athleticism that can pick up first downs or touchdowns with his legs or arm. Bailey can do it all, however, due to a lack of film due to an injury we could not in fairness list Kaleb higher or he could have very well been in the top 10 if not five conversations with some of the best quarterback recruits in his class. Bailey is the real deal and an elite quarterback who could surpass many this coming up season on our rankings. Holds 6 division I offers to schools like Auburn, TCU, and UTSA.

Brady has some of the best football pedigree of any recruit on this list and his mechanics throwing the football show that he has received top-tier training.

Brady can throw the football very well, and with precise timing with all of his receivers. With his ability to hit receivers deep down the field in stride or over the middle of the field.
