Stacked 2023 QB talent within Tennessee
With four quarterbacks currently committed to power five programs, it's clear the 2023 class of signal-callers within the state of Tennessee is on pace to be the most talented in the Rivals-era.
Rivals.com takes a look at the power five quarterback commitments as well as a couple of wild cards to keep an eye on throughout the fall.
Power Five Pledges:
Glenn's recruiting process skyrocketed throughout the spring and summer as offers came pouring in from various power five powerhouse programs. The four-star committed to Ohio State on July 30th over the likes of Florida State, Auburn, and TCU. Glenn is ranked the 4th-best prospect in Tennessee and sets within the Rivals250 rankings at No. 246.
Pitt is coming off one of their best seasons in school history and new Panthers' offensive coordinator Frank Cignetti keyed in on Minchey way back in February. The three-star has been firmly committed to Pitt since April 30th. Other programs are also taking notice, as Notre Dame extended an offer in late July. Minchey is coming of a weekend where he threw for 292 yards and five touchdowns on 11-of-14 passing in a 49-35 win over Father Ryan.
Parson was originally committed to Florida State for nearly a year before backing off his pledge on July 12th. The three-star took visits to Mississippi State in June and July before committing to the Bulldogs on August 12th over the likes of Virginia Tech, SMU, and TCU.
After two visits to Ole Miss in the spring, Reed announced his commitment to the Rebels on April 25th over the likes of Arkansas, Vanderbilt, and others. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound signal-caller can make big plays with his arm and his legs and has led his Montgomery Bell Academy team to a 3-0 record to start the season.
Brown is currently committed to Liberty, where the 6-foot-4, 195-pound talent should thrive in a high-powered Hugh Freeze offense. So far, the three-star prospect has led his Lipscomb Academy team to a 3-0 record, which includes impressive road wins over national powerhouse programs Milton (Ga.) and Thompson (Ala.).
Georgia State got a steal when Ragland gave his commitment to the Panthers on June 20th. The three-star is an athletic quarterback with a strong arm that can make all the throws on the field and beat you with his legs. The 6-foot-2, 200-pounder has led Bartlett (Tenn.) to a 2-1 record so far this season.
