Best of RCS: Quarterbacks

The Latest: Houston is at the top of his list right now, but he is taking his time and exploring all options. Keep an eye on Arizona State and Florida.
The Skinny: Without a doubt, Sterling-Cole put together one of the most impressive performances of the Rivals Camp Series, and he took home Quarterback MVP honors at the Houston Speed and Skill Challenge. He has some nice size, and he put excellent touch on the ball. His spiral cut through a stiff wind and he really showed well in the 7-on-7 competition.

PQB
Hunter Johnson (2017)
RCS: St. Louis
The Latest: Northwestern, Notre Dame, Penn State and Tennessee are some of the top contenders for Johnson, who could decide prior to his junior season.
The Skinny: There are few quarterbacks across the country, in any class, who make throwing a football look as pretty as Johnson does. He is still learning how to vary trajectories and throw his receivers open, but the rising junior has a wealth of talent at his disposal.

DQB
Jarrett Guarantano
RCS: New Jersey
The Latest: Guarantano committed to Tennessee in mid-April
The Skinny: Guarantano competed at two Rivals Camp Series events to show off his progress as a passer. He has a huge arm, can throw the ball with accuracy and knows how to put touch on passes when needed.
5
DQB
Tate Martell (2017)
RCS: Las Vegas and RCS: Los Angeles
The Latest: Martell, a former Washington commit, considers himself wide open, but USC still plays a significant role in his recruitment. Alabama and Texas A&M offered recently.
The Skinny: Martell has so many intangibles to his game, but he also looks comfortable just sitting in the pocket and accurately throwing the ball during one-on-ones. During drills when he could roll out and use his feet, Martell looked excellent at multiple stops on the Rivals Camp Series.
6
PQB
Austin Kendall
RCS: Charlotte
The Latest: After decommitting from Tennessee, Kendall committed to Oklahoma.
The Skinny: Kendall's timing and accuracy are his best attributes as a passer. At the two Rivals Camp Series events he attended (he was also at the Atlanta QB Challenge), Kendall was one of the top players in attendance.
7
DQB
Xavier Gaines
Orlando Speed & Skill Challenge
The Latest: Gaines, who doesn't say much about his recruitment, is hard to read, but Alabama, Texas and Florida are all heavily involved.
The Skinny: The event's coaches raved about Gaines following the camp, and rightfully so. The 6-foot-3 quarterback wowed with his arm strength and spun the ball, which seemed to jump out of his hand incredibly well. He showed some touch when he needed it, but his velocity is what caught everyone's attention.
8
PQB
Nick Starkel
RCS: Dallas
The Latest: Starkel is committed to Oklahoma State.
The Skinny: Starkel has nice size and gets the ball out in a hurry. He is not going to wow in any one particular area, but he is very strong across the board. He has a strong arm, he throws with accuracy, and he was the most consistent from the beginning of camp to the end.
9
DQB
Todd Centeio (2017)
RCS: Miami
The Latest: Centeio is committed to Miami, but is taking a hard look at other schools. He is expected to take a number of unofficial visits this summer.
The Skinny: Centeio is 6-feet, and that probably hurts his offer list. That said, he's incredibly elusive and throws well on the run. He has good-enough arm strength and tremendous touch that allows him to lead receivers downfield with regularity. He was the quarterback MVP at RCS: Miami.
10
DQB
Woody Barrett
Orlando Speed & Skill Challenge
The Latest: Barrett plans to make a decision in the near future and seems to favor Alabama, Florida and Texas in some order.
The Skinny: Barrett has incredible thickness and is hard to bring down. He also has impressive arm strength and a knack for throwing on the move. His footwork needs a little bit of work and he could stand to become more consistent, but all the physical tools are present. He got better as the day went along in Orlando and looked like the best quarterback in attendance for a stretch at the end of the afternoon.
11
PQB
Shon Mitchell (2017)
RCS: Atlanta
The Latest: Mitchell's recruitment is slowly picking up speed. Wake Forest was the last school to offer.
The Skinny: Mitchell has matured physically and it showed when he participated in RCS: Atlanta and the Atlanta Quarterback Challenge. He has a very strong arm and is very accurate downfield. Hopefully schools will recognize his talent and not look past him because he stands just 5-11.
12
DQB
Jaren Hall
RCS: Las Vegas
The Latest: Hall is committed to BYU.
The Skinny: Hall showed a really strong arm that earned him the quarterback MVP in Las Vegas, throwing tight spirals and very catchable footballs to his receivers. He looked comfortable throwing on the run and was very accurate despite some challenging winds. Hall was smooth in his drops and got the ball out quickly.
13
DQB
Seth Green
RCS: Dallas
The Latest: Green has committed to Oregon.
The Skinny: Green is a big quarterback with tremendous athleticism. In the camp setting, he doesn't really get a chance to show off his athleticism and he is seen as a little rough around the edges. However, by the end of camp, he really found his stride. He showed a big arm and he was able to put the ball right where his receivers needed it to be.
14
PQB
Messiah deWeaver
RCS: Cleveland
The Latest: DeWeaver announced a commitment to Michigan State on April 22.
The Skinny: Having watched deWeaver's development over the last few years, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound passer has really improved his arm mechanics and now has very few flaws. He does not have the biggest arm around, but he puts enough velocity on his throws and excels with accuracy, decision-making and intangibles.
15
DQB
Zerrick Cooper
RCS: Atlanta
The Latest: Cooper is solidly committed to Clemson, with the intention of enrolling early in January.
The Skinny: RCS Atlanta was Cooper's his first major competition after missing his junior season with a knee injury. Cooper showed the agility and ability to throw on the move that make him an ideal fit for the Tigers' offense, and looks like he will be him old self in time for his senior season.
