A lot goes into the ranking of quarterbacks in college football. These rankings are based off of talent, experience, winning, and some gut feelings. Here we go.
T-15. Charlie Brewer (Baylor)
T-15. Spencer Sanders (Oklahoma State)
14. Mac Jones (Alabama)
13. Bo Nix (Auburn)
12. Kyle Trask (Florida)
11. Kellen Mond (Texas A&M)
10. Sam Elingher (Texas)
9. Kedon Slovis (Southern California)
8. Brock Purdy (Iowa State)
7. KJ Costello (Mississippi State)
6. Sam Howell (North Carolina)
5. Tanner Morgan (Minnesota)
If I saw this name in a top 5 at the beginning of last season, I would’ve thought it was a joke. PJ Fleck gets a lot of credit for the Gophers recent success, but Morgan has been a key component. He put up big numbers in a conference that is built on defense. Morgan is just a junior, and he will be back in full force this season.
4. Ian Book (Notre Dame)
Ian Book catches a lot of heat, but really only because he plays for Notre Dame. The Irish are a very hated team, and that comes with major scrutiny for the quarterback. Book led the Irish to the playoff in his sophomore season and he threw for over 3000 yards, 34 TDs, and 6 picks last year. Book is a very good quarterback, and it is about time he gets some respect.
3. Jayden Daniels (Arizona State)
I might be a year early on Daniels in some people’s minds, but this kid is a stud. I don’t like to make long term predictions, but I’ll take Daniels as the next Russell Wilson at the next level. This kid has a big arm, he is quick, and he is CLUTCH. Daniels is only a sophomore, and at some point in the next couple years, he could have a Heisman in his trophy case.
2. Justin Fields (Ohio State)
I was a little hesitant before the beginning of last year when it came to Fields. I wanted to see more of his arm in action before buying in. After a year at Ohio State, Fields proved everyone wrong. He has tremendous arm talent and showed he knows how to win big games. The only reason he is behind Lawrence? Lawrence outplayed him when they faced off, but the gap is slim.
1. Trevor Lawrence (Clemson)
This seems like a no-brainer to me. Lawrence is a proven winner, has tremendous arm talent, and knows how to run his system. Lawrence continues to prove why he is one of the best QB prospects ever. He will be nothing short of spectacular this season.
