Top 2023 Quarterbacks

Emmanuel Charles-Lobo

We kick off our re-rankings series this month by taking a look at some of the top senior quarterbacks going into this coming up season. We might ruffle up some feathers and shake a few things up with some new names on the board. But nonetheless, we take a lot of factors into our consideration including a few examples: film, stats, division of play, accolades, offers, HS coach input, as well as a few other factors. 

So here is a look at the top 20 recruits to know for this fall. 

 

 

20.Brady Devers | 6’3, 195 | Fort Bend Christian Academy

Brady has a sensational season for the Eagles in 2021 eclipsing 4,054 yards passing and 62 TD. With the ability to keep his eyes downfield under pressure, Devers knows how to stretch the defense.

Previous Rank: #17

19.Brennan Storer | 5’11, 190 | Highland Park

Throwing for 2,525 yards and 32 total TD, Storer showed great feel inside the pocket and knows how to stretch out a defense with his arm. Recently commiting to Western Michigan, he’ll have the chancefor early playing time, but will be focusing on making one more run with the Scots before doing so.

Previous Rank: #14

18.Preston Hatter | 6’2, 185 | Klein Oak

The left-handed gunslinger does not fold under pressure. Hatter has great feel to climb the pocket, keep his eyes downfield, and show off his arm strength with quick strikes. Look for Preston’s recruitment to start heating up.

Previous Rank: #16

17.Cedric Harden Jr. | 6’3, 190 | Cedar Hill

Cedric is an athlete who can play multiple positions at the next level including QB, but mostly likely end up being used as an athlete on either side of the ball. He uses his elite speed to make losses turn into a positive yardage and can gas everyone into the endzone. His future might be as a wide receiver at the next level as he’s been working on his receiving skills this summer and has seen it pay off with eight offers to this point from schools such as Arizona, Georgia Tech, and Louisiana Monroe.

Previous Rank: #9

16.Nathan Greek | 6’5, 228 | Ferris

The big-bodied technician carved out defenders passing for 1,547 yards and 20 total TD in 5 games. Receiving offers from Virginia Tech, Stetson, Southern Miss, and Alabama A&M among others, Greek looks to double those numbers having a full season ahead of him.

Previous Rank: #15

15.Weston Smith | 6’5, 215 | Colleyville Heritage

With a college-ready frame, Weston is very nimble in the pocket and delivers the ball with a flick of the wrist. Already committed to Princeton, look for Smith to build on his last season (2,608 passing yards and 29 TD).

Previous Rank: #19

(2023 Princeton commit Weston Smith)

14.Chase Jenkins | 5’11, 170 | Alief Taylor

Recently committed to Rice, Chase shows his high IQ by dissecting opposing defenses with strategic drives. Jenkins showed high efficiency only throwing one interception to 24 TD. Rice has a steal in Chase coming to them next year.

Previous Rank: Unranked

13.Jackson Gilkey | 6’2, 200 | Ennis

Jackson was able to place the ball everywhere and anywhere against opposing defenses this past season. Showing exceptional velocity, Gilkey has offers from programs such as Houston, Tulane, and Louisiana Tech.

Previous Rank: #6

12.JT Fayard | 6’5, 205 | Foster

Despite only playing 6 games due to transfer, that didn’t stop him from making a huge impact for Foster this season. Fayard is a prototypical sized quarterback at 6’5 with a quick release and touch on all of his passes. He shows great vision and pocket presence by standing tall delivering the deep ball in the pocket.

Previous Rank:  #10 

11.Bryce Fucik | 6’2, 195 | Strake Jesuit

Bryce was never shy threading the needle with throws passing for 2,548 yards and 29 TD. His ability to run and through is phenomenal. With his strong composure in the pocket and elite arm strength; it won’t be long before his first FBS offers start to roll in.

Previous Rank: 12th

10.Jacobe Robinson | 6’3, 215 | Henderson

The 3-star plamaker was hard to contain on the field last season totaling 2,403 yards and 24 TD. With strong poise, Robinson is able to stay accurate outside the pocket and make the routine throw. Jacobe will be going into the season committed to Boston College.

Previous Rank: #21

9.Patrick Burke(23) | QB | Episcopal School of Dallas

Patrick is a dual threat quarterback who is just as comfortable throwing the football on the run as he is in the pocket.Has the requisite height and size; also shows an impressive ability to launch the football deep down field and can hit receivers in stride.Has impressive velocity on all of his throws, and can split defenders while also being able to showcase elite ball placement.

Biggest Stock Riser 

8. Kaden Brown (23) | QB | Midlothian Heritage

Kaden is our biggest stock riser on our list of top QBs for good reason. His athletics bears out in both throwing and running the football. With his ability to hurt defenses with his strong, accurate arm or burn they on his way into the endzone. Will be a dominate QB for Midlothian Heritage this season, and recruiting is starting to see a boast with offers coming in.

Previous Rank: Unranked

7. Ashton Dubose | 6’2, 185 | Brennan

Ashton put up video game numbers his junior year racking up 3,623 yards passing, 943 yards rushing, and 68 total TD. The third team all-state selection used his mobility to extend the play and showed consistent touch on the ball. Dubose currently holds offers from UTSA, Houston Baptist, and Austin Peay.

5. Jake Strong | 6’1, 175 | Northwest

When you picture an ideal dual-threat at the position , you think of Jake. Totaling 3,252 yards (918 rushing) and 38 TD, Strong showed exceptional arm strength and accuracy on all three levels. Committed to Texas Tech, Jake will fit right into Mcguire’s offense.

4.Kaden Anderson | 6’4, 205 | Southlake Carroll

There wasn’t a single quarterback in the country last season that had bigger shoes to fill than Kaden did following Quinn Ewers. He did not fold amassing over 3100 total yards and 41 total TD while leading the Dragons to a 14-1 record and the Class 6A-I state semifinals. The District 4-6A first-team selection showed the ability to extend the pocket and make precision throws with quality zip. With offers from Bowling Green and Houston Baptist, Kaden is out to switch the label of “Most Underrated” to “Top Rated” real soon.

Previous Rank: Same

3. Bo Edmundson | 6’3, 185 | Lake Travis

Bo torched opposing defenses to the tune of 3,239 yards passing and 38 TD this past year. Able to throw darts outside the numbers in and out the pocket. The Michigan State commit will look to build on last season’s run to the 6A D-I state semifinal.

2. Austin Novosad | 6’3, 180 | Dripping Springs

1. Jackson Arnold | 6’1, 195 | Denton Guyer

The District 5-6A Co-MVP was the most efficient quarterback in the state amassing 3,811 total yards (515 rushings) and 38 total TD to 5 interceptions. Arnold has elite pocket presence and gets the ball out in a hurry. Committed to Oklahoma, Norman fans can be excited to be getting a player that I see compared to Jason White (Heisman Trophy Winener in 2003).

Koby Truehill | 6’4, 185 | Pateow

How do you top winning a state championship? Koby is about to show us. The slender lefty has high velocity on the ball to pair with adequate touch and exceptional accuracy. Look for Truehill to make another run with his talented Panthers.
