Video: J.J. McCarthy highlights
One of the top quarterbacks in the country in action.
One of the top programs in high school football just got better heading into the 2020 season.
IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.)
added five star quarterback transfer J.J McCarthy
of Nazareth Acdemy (LaGrange Park, Ill.). The 2021 Michigan commit led the Roadrunners to back-to-back 7A state title game appearances and they won it all in 2018.
Over the last two seasons, McCarthy has thrown for over 6,300 yards and 71 touchdowns while going 26-2 as the starting quarterback.
His addition puts the Ascenders in the conversation to be the No. 1 team when MaxPreps releases its preseason rankings next month.
