7on7 Analysis: QB's

7on7 Analysis: QB's

New Level Athletics held their annual state 7on7 Tournament in Tampa this past weekend and many of the state's top prospects were there.

While there were elite level players all over the field for every team, this update will focus on just a few of the top recruiting prospects and how they performed at the event.

Three quarterbacks went into the event with Division 1 scholarship offers -- Travares Copeland, Nick Patti, and Nathan Peterman.

Copeland lacks ideal height at 5-foot-11 but he has a strong arm and understands the game very well. He was very effective in finding open receivers and being effective in moving the ball and scoring points for the Treasure Coast team. While some project him to be a wide receiver in college, he's one of the state's top quarterbacks and can be a BCS-caliber player there.

Patti also lacks ideal height at about 5-foot-10 but he might be the best high school quarterback in the state right now. 37 touchdowns and 4 picks on a team that went to the 6A title game was his junior stat line. He sat out Saturday after throwing a lot of balls at the Elite 11 camp and while he wasn't his sharpest Sunday, he still did an excellent job for the central Florida team. He doesn't have ideal size or a rocket arm but he's extremely smart, accurate, and skilled at moving the ball and scoring points. Someone will be getting a steal with him.

Peterman is the prototype of the three. At 6-3 and 210, he has ideal size and a very strong arm. While he could still speed up his delivery, he can make all the throws, has nice athletic ability to make things happen with his feet, and he has a high football IQ. The kid was very productive all weekend for the Jacksonville team and will likely emerge as one of the state's top QB prospects this spring.
