Video: Class of 2018 Top 10 quarterbacks
Watch the gunslingers who will be lighting it up next season on the gridiron.
By all accounts, Trevor Lawrence
has it all. A big frame. Long locks. The rifle right arm.
The Cartersville (Ga.)
quarterback was selected the MaxPreps 2016 Junior Player of the Year not just for his looks, but also for his production.
The 6-foot-5, 197-pounder led the Hurricanes to a 15-0 record and second straight AAAA Georgia state title by completing 250-of-406 passes for 3,904 yards and 51 touchdowns.
He was voted the Player of the Year in the star-studded state of Georgia by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, which says Lawrence is 2,477 yards and 40 TDs from breaking the state record of 13,077 and 159 held by none other than Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson of Gainesville. Lawrence, 42-2 as a starter and winner of 30 straight games, is following Watson to Clemson.
Lawrence also was selected the top recruit overall for the Class of 2018 in the 247Sports Composite
rankings released on Wednesday.
Here is the rest of the Top 10:2. Matt Corral, Long Beach Poly (Calif.)
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder just transferred from Oaks Christian. He's committed to USC. 3. Jacob Sirmon, Bothell (Wash.)
The 6-foot-4, 218-pounder is planning to stay near home. He's committed to Washington. 4. Emory Jones, Heard County (Franklin, Ga.)
One of three Georgia natives on the list, the 6-foot-3, 193-pounder has committed to Ohio State. 5. Philip Jurkovec, Pine-Richland (Gibsonia, Pa.)
The 6-foot-5, 190-pounder isn't just big, he can move. He's a dual threat and headed to Notre Dame. 6. Justin Fields, Harrison (Kennesaw, Ga.)
Another big kid, at 6-foot-3, 221-pounds also is a dual threat. He's committed to Penn State. 7. Dorian Thompson-Robinson, Bishop Gorman (Las Vegas)
Not a bad ranking considering he was a backup last year. He backed up the MaxPreps Player of the Year Tate Martell - now at Ohio State - and also starred at wide receiver. The 6-2, 195-pound dual threat is the only one on the list not yet committed, though he has 24 offers, including Alabama, Michigan, Oregon, UCLA and Arizona.8. Artur Sitkowski, (IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)
The 6-foot-5, 215-pounder is a drop-back quarterback with a big arm. He's headed to Miami. 9. Cameron Rising, Newbury Park (Calif.)
The Oklahoma commit is another pro-style quarterback. He's 6-3 and 195 pounds. 10. Jack West, Saraland (Ala.)
Not only big and strong at 6-3 and 200 pounds, but West is bright. He's committed to Stanford.
