21. Jacobe Robinson (23)| 6’4 218 | Dual-threat QB | 2023 |Henderson
Jacobe can throw just as well as any quarterback on this list. He has the size at 6’4 almost two hundred-twenty pounds and throws the ball well on the run or sitting in the pocket. Footwork and mechanics need improvement, however, this is a good-looking athlete and competitor with an arm.
20. Colin Johnson (23) | 6’2 175 | Pro-style QB | 2023 |Dawson
Colin is a gunslinger, he flashes a quick-release on the football and can rifle the ball towards the middle of the field or drop it in the breadbasket where only his receivers can catch it. Tough to list him here, just as good as any, just arm strength could be better and touch.
19. Weston Smith (23) | 6’5 215 | Pro-Style QB | 2023 | Colleyville Heritage
Weston is one of the most underrated quarterbacks. Has terrific arm strength and size you’d like to see at the quarterback position.

Smith has all of the tools, physical attributes, and skills to be a recruit that many could soon be talking about.

Storer had a breakout season in 2021, earning him some offers and catching the attention of colleges across the nation because of his elite athletics, and arm. A bit undersized as a QB, Storer knows how to work the ball down the field. Holds offer to Illinois State, Kansas, Kent State, Texas State, and interest from others.
13. Chase Jenkins (23)| 5’11 175 | Dual-Threat QB |2023 | Alief Taylor
With 2,496 yards passing this season and 24 touchdowns Jenkins had an amazing season limiting his mistakes with only throwing 1 interception on the year. 1-st team all-district in 23-6A, a bit undersized but a feierce competior with a rifle of an arm,
12. Bryce Fucik (23) | 6’2 185 | Pro-Style QB | 2023 |Strake Jesuit
Fucik looks like a dominant quarterback that could pass for a dual-threat QB because of his athleticism. However, his strength is dropping back and delivering the football downfield from the pocket. Last season he had a limited number of targets but still managed to put up some impressive numbers and sling the rock beautifully.
11. Duke Butler Jr. (23) | 6’2 185 | Dual Threat QB |2023 | Shadow Creek
Duke is a fast, athletic quarterback who can sling the rock. On the field, he shows flashes of speed and arm strength, as well as touch on all of his throws. He’s not afraid to tuck and run with the football and or deliver a strike in between coverage and shows he can find the endzone constantistantly.

JT is a quarterback who is making a name for himself. He possesses all the physical attributes and skills to be a top next-level prospect. Last season JT threw the ball really well for Foster and dominated through the air.
9. Cedric Harden Jr. (23) | 6’2 185 | Dual Threat QB /ATH | 2023 | Cedar Hill
One of the top athletes in his class, Harden is a threat to score anytime the football is in his hands. As a dual-threat QB out of the backfield Harden can deliver to the end zone or take off for six points himself.
8. Mason Shorb (23)| 6’3 176 | Pro-Style QB | 2023 | Rouse
This quarterback can make all of the throws. In tight coverage, deep down the field, doesn’t matter, Shorb can make it look easy. He can deliver a nice deep ball and has elite mechanics and footwork in the pocket. One of my favorite arms in the 2023 cycle that is under the radar.
7. Ashton Dubose (23)| 6’2 185 | Dual-threat QB | 2023 |Brennan
Ashton is one of central Texas’s best dual-threat QBs. He can make every throw with a beautiful touch and absolutely torch defenses with his legs or arm.

Jake has one of the better arms in his class. He features excellent mechanics, a smooth drop back and a quick release to open receivers. His recruiting I believe will take off in 2022.
4. Kaden Anderson (23) | 6’4 205 | Pro-Style QB | 2023 | Southlake Carrol
One of the most breakout quarterbacks this year in any class could arguably be this QB right here. Anderson is one prolific proticpaical quarterback who looks and competes like the elite.

Austin was one of those guys who made a name for himself the last offseason around this time with his throwing ability and stature. He shined during 7-on-7 and camp season and his recruitment began to take off after that. His senior campaign will be a special one to watch.
